Any welders in the KC area looking for work?
I cleaned up the headliner today. All the pieces were in fairly good shape except for one and it was broken in half. Bows looked good too. Took the grinder to it and the old girl cleaned up pretty good. For some reason I still can't get the back window to operate.
I bought 6 sections of floor pans today, 3 for the driver's side and 3 for the passenger from IH Parts. They should be here by the end of the week. $500 ouch!
Floor pans came in today. The adventure should start on Monday. BTW, I ordered these pans from IH Parts and so far have been impressed. First with how quickly they were shipped and delivered and Secondly, how heavy duty the pans are. These should last longer than the original ones. (with proper care).
Here's my 68 T-ALL with new floor pans. I'm hoping this will last me for at least 50 years! I bought the floor pans that were already pre-formed and even though I was impressed with the thickness of the steel, they didn't form very well at all. Next time I think I would buy flat metal and form it myself. The back seat floor pans are in pretty good shape although I'm going to spend the money and get POR 51.
It seems like someone on here mentioned buying sheetmetal and making your own panels.
I know, I should have listened to wise advice. Not only would it have been less trouble but a whole lot cheaper too. BTW, who was that who said it?
I have a question about my LST. For some reason I thought it would give the color of the truck? My didn't so I was just wondering if that's normal or not?
it should hve by the bottom a paint code,not the color written out
I see it, thanks! It looks like 801-20 Gray. I didn't know they made a gray back then.
The original gray on your firewall almost looks like the gray they used on the earlier dash panels.
Take some rubbing compound on the firewall,it will bring out the color real well there.
Here is my LTS and was wondering if someone could give me information on what kind of rear end does it have? Also the color says it's "gray." It is just "gray" or is there another name for it?
RA-18 is the standard (non limted slip, RA-28 w/LSD) Dana 44 with flanged rather than tapered axle (which would be the RA-9, RA-23 w/LSD) The flanged , one-piece axle came in during the 1969 800A model year.
Thanks Mongo, hows the 57 coming along?
Noticed your truck came with a winch did you ever take a peek for a pto unit ?
Always seemed like your truck was ordered for a government or municipality .... GSA answers that question
Yes it has the pto. How do I find out?
general services administration (GSA) at the top of your LST
("The General Services Administration (GSA), an independent agency of the United States government, was established in 1949 to help manage and support the basic functioning of federal agencies. GSA supplies products and communications for U.S. government offices, provides transportation and office space to federal employees, and develops government-wide cost-minimizing policies and other management task")
In 1947 President Harry Truman asked former President Herbert Hoover to lead what became known as the Hoover Commission to make recommendations to reorganize the operations of the federal government. One of the recommendations of the commission was the establishment of an "Office of the General Services." This proposed office would combine the responsibilities of the following organizations:
U.S. Treasury Department's Bureau of Federal Supply
U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Contract Settlement
National Archives Establishment
All functions of the Federal Works Agency, including the Public Buildings Administration and the Public Roads Administration
War Assets Administration
Still plugging along on the 57..got my fenders back today..once I get the body done on those itll be ready for paint
It's been awhile since I've posted but I got my front and back seat reupholstered. Here's the front seat. Something I'm really proud of is the design in the middle is actually from the original seat. They cut it out and painted it. The color of the new seat is very close to the original. I believe the upholster did an excellent job and very pleased with the whole thing. I would have it installed but too many projects going on. The back seat has the same design as the front.
