New wheels and tires…

On the road to the museum vehicle! Plain steel wheels with Cooper Trendsetter SE tires 235/75R15. Steelies with stainless steel Dodge red circle hub caps.


New wheels…

For the registration of the museum vehicle need to change the wheels to the period correct. Self made paint from the rattle can…

So the plain 15×8 steel wheels with the red circle hub caps coming right up. Stay tuned…


Sport mirrors…

Looking good! Also changed the fuel sending unit because gas gauge dropped to zero when the tank is half way. Now eagerly waiting when the tank is half way to see if it is now working…


Lower steel panels fixed…

There was only minor bubbles in the paint on the left side of the truck but I wanted to fix those. After removing the paint only minor pin holes at the lower panel so we attached few patches of new steel and painted both sides. Upper body bronze paint is original and still looking good.


Candy Ass Truck is back…

New plans with this… new repro sport mirrors and new period correct tires and wheels with hub caps.

Car Wash Day…

 


New Stuff and Things

After rethinking the carb I ended up with Holley 650 douple pumper. Also purchased new mufflers, because current Flowmaster 40 series drone too much for me.


New tires…

The old Uniroyal Tiger Paw GTS tires were little bit slippery when wet due to hardness of age. Purchased the Cooper Cobras… Looking good!

Tail Emblem

After the original two-tone repaint the tail Plymouth emblem was left out. Now finally got the time to attach it. Because now having 1971 tail stripes I needed to attach this into the trunk lid instead of ’70 style right above the right tail light.
