updated pictures for my 1960 F-100

thought I would post some updated pictures...went with steel wheels and hubcaps-not for exact year, but caps were $15 ea and rims were $120 for whole set-reconditioned. Went with alternator, voltage regulator was allowing overcharging of battery and shutting off radio (found out when put in new gauges-pegging voltage meter @ 16 while driving)...polished gauge cluster (best I could by hand). put in tach-turning 2200 RPM @ 55 MPH on GPS. Also put in new headliner and anti rattle kit for side windows, new windshield with new gasket. have door seals, haven't gotten to them yet. also ran single straight pipe with 12" glass pack...

I want to lower next-3" front and rear, any ideas?

Also want to do bed-liner (thinking of Monstaliner DIY kit) before winter, don't know wether to go above or below bed rails? I have a friend whose company will bead blast and prime for me at a good cost

Dropped axle up front and mono-leaf rear springs.

thanks everyone for all the compliments-I appreciate it and am proud of the truck. from what I can tell the top half of truck was repainted along with dash and doors. some hack work was done along the way, but I am sorting through slowly.

If you get yourself a shop manual and a master parts catalog it will make the job easier.

I think this is the guy who introduced monoleaf springs to the street rod industry; James Durant - Durant Enterprises, Newport Beach, CA (949) 673-5625.
Never dealt with them or used monoleaf's - just past knowledge.
Reversed eyes will drop your ride even lower. Talk to them and they should point you in the right direction.

alrighty fellers...haven't got to the drop yet, combo of $ and wanting to DRIVE truck and not have it down for a few weeks. I've done some small stuff and thought I would post for ya.

Covered the seat with a couple mexican blankets...hog ringed em on the right way. I don't care for vinyl seats and like the look of the blankets

correct vent cap and insulated the fuel line and replaced all coolant and heater hoses

put in a homemade overflow mason jar...does the trick.

picture of the phelonic spacer...need to get the weeping issue next on carb, only weeps overnight, no leaks like before.

put on a resonated exhaust tip on because I didnt like the "spitting" sound from the short glass pack. I like the sound now.

Also put a picture of my Great Grandpas old diner in Gilroy CA because I think its cool
