  1. You can read the story hear and see the pics. I am taking a friend's badly cut up bed and frame from his '71 and installing an old smoker. Bwhind that will be the short bed [5' long] intact to carry wood and camping gear.

    I picked up the old smoker yesterday...

  4. One question I have is once I get the surface rust off the smoker, how do I go about painting it black and what paint to use?

    I use high heat flat black form the part store.

    I love that truck! Those are my favorite!

    is black the color you really want?..lol
    IMO if i was to build an chevy into a smoker, i would use something like burnt orange or something similar - engine enamel - high heat paint - higher price but more colors to choose from....

    but thats just me...lol

    looking good so far
