Default Blue Beast

Well, it about done and road ready...
64 Chevy short/step 4x4. I stripped it down to frame and put it together from there. It's got a 70 vette motor in it that I did a little refresh and cam in. New 4 barrel, intake manifold, etc. Its got a ton of custom and one off bits that I created for it. I will bring it out to an event or meeting soon...but here's a few pics of it. (I hope, when I preview, only one pic shows!) After all I've been thru on this, turns out lug nuts to work with these wheels is my kryptonite......found them, just waiting on the brown truck and I will be driving it soon.

Default Tailgate at night

There is lexan backing the cut out and led light strips, blue and white, behind to give it a electric chrome effect.

Thanks. I went with maple floor and sealed the heck out of it. Did all the wheel wells and bumper in truck bed liner and while I was at it, shot all the bottoms of the bed planks too. The cab has 2 layers of dynomat and 1 of high density foam to keep in the sound from 18 speakers and 500 watts. I plan to keep it so I built it the way I wanted. It's not perfect but perfect for me!

Super nice looking truck. If I had more than a single car garage, I'd probably have a step side Chevy.

What did you end up doing for the exhaust?
