Howdy All! Well.... Its been a long and sometimes "exciting" project, (almost started the truck on fire the first trip out after getting it done, forgot to release the brake on the transmission[:I])but managed to get the truck finished in time for my hometown 4th of July Parade and car show, and with a couple days to spare!:D Thought I would post a couple of pictures.

Hey, Tim

That is a sharp engine compartment. I've been following your posts along the way, and it represents a lot of work. You should get poster blowups of these pictures and put them on the side of the bed whenever you parade your truck, so the crowds can see and appreciate whats under the hood.

Thanks Guys, 2R5 Bob deserves the credit for the idea of the polished Climatizer cover. Saw a posting of his on STT, and I was hooked on the idea. He was even gracious enough to repost pics of his for me! I look back at the pictures from the start to finish and am somewhat surprised at the end result myself Bob!:Dhttp://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l11/studemaker/Mergatroid%20Projects/Before1.jpg http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l11/studemaker/Finished%20Engine%20Bay/100_0339.jpg

MAN OH MAN!!! what a beautiful job under the hood! I am always amazed at the extent folks go to to detail under the hood, the outside cosmetics are easy to do. It is the small and sometimes hidden details that make the job complete.

I love the look!

Last time I do this,I promise

That truck just keeps better and better! You definitely need to post those before and after pictures along with the truck.

Wow Tim, that's one VERY sharp looking engine bay! I'd be tempted to drive around with the hood off! :D[8D]

http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l11/studemaker/Finished%20Engine%20Bay/100_0364.jpg Thanks everyone, for all the kind words! Next project will be to finally get the chrome elbows on the bottom of the stacks, and install a stainless exhaust from the headers to them. Then build a custom fiberglass bed cover with a '36 Studebaker truck winged logo airbrushed on it.:D Matthew, I did get the enjoyment of driving it around for one whole day without the hood on!;)

Compliments on the details and look, a good job. Then I saw the whole truck and engine bay open and I said, "wow, that's a beast you don't want to upset!" Altogether, lookin' real good.

This truck would look SO GOOD in color on the cover of TW.

How about sending in some high resolution photos?

Thanks for the information Leonard. Sorry to hear about your engine. I hope the damage isn't too bad, and it turns out well for you. Thanks again, Tim

Thanks Tim,

I towed it home yesterday and I am going to pull the oil pan Saturday and look to see if I can tell whet happened.

I agree with Dave, your truck would make a great article for TW.
