progress on the 47 chevrolet panel

Here's some photos of the panel. I had a nice sized exhaust leak so I pulled the manifold and found it was warped pretty badly. I had to take it over to Pilar's shop to have him call his machinist to surface the thing. I hit the Truck Shop in Orange for a gasket and 250.00 later, I was ready to re-install the manifold. No dice. The dang thing won't line up. I suspect the amount of material removed has caused the intake inserts to now be too wide. I can't say for sure but I'm going to try again Sunday when we return from the Big Three swap in San Diego. I'm almost ready to build the bed assembly and the guy with the 47 Chevrolet Suburban front two-piece bench seat is one call away from selling.


  1. Gabe, hopefully you can get that thing figured out? How was the Big 3 swap?
