    '81 C30 Regular cab DRW Drop

    I found it on their site, here is the 3/4 drop you want: https://switchsuspension.com/chevrolet-c-20-c-30-1973-1991-deluxe-3-4-drop-kit/ Personally, I'd do the above, and get the shocks you want to get.

    '81 C30 Regular cab DRW Drop

    @RottenSquare I'd highly recommend switch suspension. If you are serious about lowering your truck a couple inches, call these guys up first and let them know what you would like to do, they will tell you exactly what to buy for a kit--Or tell you exactly what you need to get from them to do it...

    What have you done to your square lately??

    I'm kinda odd too!! I thought previous maybe WWII army helmets modified, or mended 55 Caddy air cleaners into an oval, and then Flathead oil baths came to mind when I was chatting with my dad and he was going through his Flathead stuff, we've got a bunch and I thought it would be odd, and very...

    My buddy made that holder for me, GM Carbine 30's shot from the same era gun, walnut wood used. His folks own a gun shop, and collect also!

    What have you done to your square lately??

    For once instead of finding out the hard way, I did some reading first! Found out my tunnel ram won't work with my current HEI Olds distributor---I need a small diameter distributor, so a new HEI will be purchased soon. In the meantime, I decided I want to run some old fashioned air cleaners...

    Need painting advice--Pre-primed plastic Bumper Cover

    Thanks for the info. If this was steel I'd be done already. I've done many restorations, but never have dealt with plastic until now! So, totally all new to me, but since I'm a tightwad I want to spray it myself :Big Laugh:

    Need painting advice--Pre-primed plastic Bumper Cover

    Glad we are thinking the same :) Can an adhesion promoter be added to the color? This is all new to me, so as usual I am learning as I go!

    Need painting advice--Pre-primed plastic Bumper Cover

    Gent's, I need your advice on how to properly paint an aftermarket (not OEM) plastic bumper cover that came with black waterborne primer on it. My wife smashed into a deer with her 2013 Chrysler Town & Country--took out the front end. I have the parts now (finally) and want to paint up the...

    Pulling Sucks--2001 Suburban 3/4 ton--6.0

    Thanks gents!! I will hook up a vacuum gauge & also run a can of that cataclean mentioned just to be sure, I will certainly update the transmission cooler either way no matter what. As for plugs & wires---I have never done them on this rig, yet. Not a bad idea just to start fresh. O2 sensors...

    Pulling Sucks--2001 Suburban 3/4 ton--6.0

    Gent's, beyond getting a suburban like I should have with the 8.1, is there anything I can do with my 6.0 to make it pull our camper better in "not perfect" conditions (perfect conditions being no wind, no hills, cool temps)? I am pulling a 34' (bumper to hitch) tandem axle travel trailer...

    Edelbrock 500 cfm carbs. Spacers, not a bad idea! Not going for performance now, just a cool factor!

    What have you done to your square lately??

    Took some pics prior to a show last weekend. My beautiful bride and I cruised to the show just 10 miles away, headers open. :cool: When leaving the show, headers still open, I also opened up the 4-barrels on main street---loved the people giving thumbs up and kids pointing at it, my bride was...

    455 Olds Dual Quad Tunnel Ram

    If I was building an SBC I've found a tunnel ram crossover intake, looks super cool! Then I found another that was a 4-two barrel...so cool!!

    455 Olds Dual Quad Tunnel Ram

    @82sbshortbed Yup, a bit much, saw it a few days ago. I've got that one saved anyhow. Found a polished one, with carbs and velocity stacks---sold this morning, I was late. Was $1,400 I have a lead on another one, hope it comes through! I suppose I should explain a reason for "needing"...

    455 Olds Dual Quad Tunnel Ram

    Hi Gents!! I am on the search for a 455 Olds Dual Quad Tunnel Ram intake for my truck. A Dyer's blower right now is out of the question, and I love the looks of the tunnel rams--so I "need" one for it :Big Laugh: Let me know if you have one, or know of one up for grabs!! Thanks everyone! Justin

    Side markers turn on when pressing brakes

    @rusted nuts I was swearing a little bit too!!! :Big Laugh: I am sure you are right though...sick of wiring. @mibars Oh man, I am sorry I should have explained better! The side front markers on my dually fenders are the ones I saw in my mirror doing that--I did not have anyone around to check...

    Side markers turn on when pressing brakes

    I didn't find anything on this--I apologize if it's nothing new to you guys! This is for my 76 GMC 1 ton. I see my side markers glow dim, and kind of strobe a bit (dim to somewhat bright) when I press the brakes. So, I put it in park, held brake and messed with light switch (out and in...

    What have you done to your square lately??

    You have a good point there! I wish I could just attach a video rather than load to YouTube to post. Wonder if I can post to YouTube from my cell...?? I'll try.

    What have you done to your square lately??

    That I certainly won't! The guy built her like this back in'83/'84 with a kit...it's staying a kit. I haven't seen one like it, and I like it's unique!
