Default Re: 1965 GMC in the alps. Greetings from Austria.

Time for a big update. A lot has happened over the summer

Painted the cab inside in Nissan Beige (EV0). Everyone who sees the color is amazed. After that the rest of the outside was painted blue.
Mounted the cab on the frame. What a great day!

Put in the steering column and the pedals. Also installed the wiper mechanism. Steering wheel for some photos with the new chromed horn button.
Next step was the wiring. I rewired the whole harness according to the original wiring diagram. I also used new "original" connectors. Parking lights are now in the head lights in white. It is not allowed that parking lights are orange in Germany and Austria.

Put on the front mask for first test. Installed the carpet (with mass packing and for high hump) in black. Installed the back window with a new seal.

Also the brakelines are nearly finished with a dual master cylinder. Between the work on the truck I cleaned the original seat with some leather products. Looks like nearly new.

Tested the front lights. Everything works fine.

In the fall I grinded the doors and the hood. Ready for painting. Doors turned out great. The hood we have to repaint in spring.

At the moment I'm working on the rest of the wiring and the back fenders. Some body work. Painting them in spring when it's warm again. Bed wood is planned to work on in the next weeks (cut and plane). Ordered some oak wood.

Looks like the project will be finished in spring/summer after 5 years. Get her back on the road.

Such great work Tom. It is obvious you are loving every minute of bringing this GMC back to life.
