Project Clementine - 76 620

#1

Post by PDX Matt » Tue Aug 13, 2013 8:52 pm

Some have asked about more pics of the truck and some info. Here's what I got.

1976 620 Longbed
117XXX miles
L20, 4 speed

Things I've done since purchased:
- New fluids all around
- Flushed brakes
- Tune-up/timing adjustment
- Painted front grille/taillights with Plastidip
- New headlights
- Lowered with 3" blocks, roughly 3" drop in front
- New carpet
- (As of today) 14" Slot Mag wheels with 215/60/14 tires

Here are some pics from today after picking up the new wheels.

DUDE!

Those wheels are money! Changed your whole truck!


I saw pics of your truck from Blue Lake. I didn't know it was yours because it had my doors and mirrors on it.
Shits looking good!

Few pics from today. Had some issues with the original lug nuts (or more like me being an idiot and not using washers) so I proceeded to get all new lug nuts for the fronts. Also vacuumed my carpet for the first time since I did the job, forgot how clean it is. Now I need to get some foam and a blanket for my seat.

So I was inspecting my hoses yesterday and have noticed for awhile that my PCV hose was bent and all kinds of messed up. Got around to replacing the PCV valve and the hose too.

Seems to run the same as before. But as long as I know that hose is replaced I'm happy.

Did some small work today.

Received my Broadway Mirror. For those that want an attached mirror and still be able to use your sun visors, the 240mm is a perfect fit and leaves about a half inch between the mirror and visor when pulled down. Mine is convex style (gives me great visibility out of my slider window).

Also took a few hours to finally detail my engine bay. It was pretty nasty, had dirt/oil caked around the valve cover and on the sides. Here's before:

And after:

Finished at the car wash:
