  1. Chassis is in paint. Krylon colormax gloss banner red. Will be two toning it. Not sure I want black on top. Maybe gray. From a build long ago, I have a headache rack off of an Alaskan Hauler.
  2. Engine is a cat. What color is the transmission- white, silver, black, red oxide. I honestly don’t remember.
  3. Wet kit is the hydraulics that run a dump trailer. It’s usually either a aux drive with a shaft driven pump or a aux drive / pump combo, a hydraulic tank, hydraulic line, and a tower inside to operate the power take off and raise / lower. In my early years I was a dump truck driver / mechanic. I’m going by memory, which these days is a bit fuzzy.
  4. It's probably been 35+ years since I've built a semi. I'm slowly getting back into things. I've been building pickup trucks in the last few years but have been wanting to do one of these for a while. I'm attempting to do a Peterbilt 359 day cab with wet kit. I've kit bashed a lot before, but this will be more scratch built then my other builds. I prefer not to buy anything. I've got a couple of 4x4 transfer cases that might be a good donor for the wet kit. I've got some small PVC pipe that will become a short tank for the wet kit. Not sure what I'll use for the frame mounts yet.
  5. Mattilacken I just measured my 1:1, and its 64 at cab and 62 at tailgate.
  6. I've been wanting to open up the grill. I've got some mesh that I'll install behind the grill.
  7. 1999 - 2002 is the same front end. Chevy updated the front end styling in 2003 and then again in 2006. My current truck is a 2004. Honestly, its more than a scribed rear door on the driver's side to make it a 4 door extended cab. You'd need to make the rear inside door panel match the opposite side (key item being the inside door handle. Personally, I'd like to see a 2003-2005 Silverado. I haven't found one of these, not even in resin.
  8. his is Cassie; she'll be 15 in May. She is a Shih Tzu.
  9. Also, remembered that I had some parts in Purple Power. I tossed them in a couple of weeks ago and forgot about them until today. Oh well, it did the trick. On my truck, a couple of these parts are more silver than chrome.
  10. Muffler is from an old Cutlass; color will be changed. Also, decided not to do the gray. My current truck is maroon with tan interior. This is what I think I'm going with on colors.
  11. Made some progress. I didn't like the way the exhaust mounted under the axle versus over like every truck I've seen. Working on changing this to resemble the Flowmaster single in dual out that I'd installed on my 1:1. Also, I didn't like the transmission pan. None of mine had that dimple, so I've shaved it off.
  12. I'm using this kit since it is close to the 2002 that I had. Since I wanted to lower mine (but never got around to it), this gives me a chance to do it. Mine was Gray Metallic (which I happen to have some touch up paint left) with gray cloth interior. I've own 4 of these extended cabs (2002 through 2004) and some of the things that I've done to my trucks will make it onto this one, like removing the body molding. I don't like the fact that the exhaust runs under the axle instead of over it but since my truck had a Flowmaster single in dual out cat back; it'll be close. The one thing that I've done on all of my trucks has been a bowtie 3rd brake light (this might be an interesting feature if I can figure out how to do it). Since I can't work on my truck right now, this will give me an opportunity. I'd like to find a stock flat hood and the regular mirrors. Oddly enough, I noticed that the mirror glass for the stocks are in this kit, but the base is not.
  13. I've got 3 sets of running boards. 1 set of diamond plate and 2 sets of extruded aluminum. I also have a set of chrome mud flaps. Most of my parts are 80s era.
  14. I also used a section as a coil spring. Injector stacks, off road shocks, Coke cans. I started collecting them earlier this year. I've got a decent supply that is growing daily.
