Hmm...I need to sit down over the weekend and pop out a few  :D I have a cool idea: Put a trail logo on the hood or sides with a red medic cross on top of it  :D

My new grill finally got here from http://www.HartleyTNT.com.

They donated this to my "Trail Clean up" project. KC Highlights donated the lights you see mounted in the grill.

Since I am not sure what color I am going to paint the truck yet I am also not sure what color to paint the grill. So what you see here is bare metal. I just wanted to test fit it to make sure everything was going to fit right.

I was also curious how it mounted before I got it so I included a quick mounting picture. Just have to drill 4 quick holes and its done.

I like it!!  What do you think?

Well, I must be nuts.  I stumbled upon a crew cab shell that needs lots of love. I have always thought this project would be better as a crew cab so that you could haul a couple of guys up to a trail to work on it.  (Plus I have always loved these old chevy crew cabs.)

Figured since we were going to tear the whole truck down to do paint and body anyway we may as well do it on the crew cab and eventually swap over the other parts.  I could use all the help I can get if anyone wants to work on it. (Or would like to buy the other shell when I am done)

hmmm...are both these rigs carbeurated or are they TBI? I only ask because I want to go EFI on the Scout, but don't want to sell my soul to get a kit. So I need to start sourcing parts of of part outs and so forth. :)

The current truck is a carbed 454 with a Holley truck avenger. The crew cab came with no engine. We may just swap the big block over or find a FI engine.

Paint it the color of every other vehicle in your garage. What else? ;)



So based on the basic color of the new crew cab guess what color it will be painted :roll:
