Purchased from Larry Sparks (country/bluegrass legend) and you never realize how much work they need. I'm in the process of making a new wiring harness. I have put a modern alternator, fuse block that uses ceramic fuses, cloth covered loom for the wire, 1157 bulb sockets for the front parking lights to use turn signals from the same light. Just to mention a few of the upgrades. Lot's of work done and lot's more to go. I hope to be driving it very soon.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

I think I'm doing this right?

Just finished up making a new wiring harness with a single wire alternator. I also made a new exhaust system out of stainless mandrel bent tubing and a stainless muffler. I don't want me or anyone else to have to redo that work that I do!

Will work on brakes next!

I think I'm going to sell this truck. I need to purchase a different every day shop truck and having some of the funds from this would help!

Ok I still have this truck and I should have the brake work done soon. I am hopefully going to end up with front disc brakes from a 15,000lb GVW later model Chevy. Looks pretty easy to do and I already have the dual circuit master figured out! I'll post some pictures soon.

Still working on the truck....It would be nice to drive it soon, but other work has forced me to move this truck out of my main shop. Hopefully I can move it back it shortly and finish up the brake conversion and start driving!

Well, It has been a long time since I have posted up any progress. I did move the truck last year into our new shop. I thought that parking right outside my office door would make me work on it more....Well that didn't work. I have been walking past it a couple hundred times a day.

I have finally started to see some progress.

Things I had done.

-Make new gas tank
-Make new wiring harness
-Convert to 12 volt
-Make new exhaust

I hope to finish up the disc brake conversion this week. I will have to move the exhaust as it is to close to the brake booster that I installed.

Things I need to do before driving

-Upholster seat
-Change all the fluids
-Bleed brakes
-Flush out fuel system (again)
-Finish making the floor board

Should be some updated picture's in the links above
