View Full Version : the "dirty dub"

11-14-2009, 10:57 PM
well i figured that i might as well post up some pics of the dub as im tinkering with it.


^^ this is pretty much how i got it and for the most parts what it still looks like. its bagged with slams up front and stones in the back. bags on the axle and 4 link. hot rod style spun aluminum tank in the bed.

up until last weekend all i did was redo the air management. it had scuba tanks and and some really cool valves but the PO asked if he could have that stuff back and i wanted to put a comp on it anyway so it worked out.


^^ this is what i did last weekend. got it on the garage and started cleaning up under the hood. got somethings relocated. moved the charcoal canister thingy under the inner fender under the headlights and the coils down. all the wiring is sittin on the pass floorboard at the moment until i get all this situated.



^^ this is pretty much where im at now. spent the week test fitting the tub and trimming here and there and all that jazzy stuff. then got it all welded up and started some body work today as well. until i ran out of sand paper. the diamond plate is where the wiring harness cam through the firewall.

i love this truck what are your plans for it?

11-15-2009, 04:46 AM
The front pretty much what you see plus some bodywork and paint. The bed will get some sheetmetal at some point this winter

11-16-2009, 09:09 PM
dude.. seriously i LOVE this truck.. i emailed the PO a few weeks ago asking him about the suspension setup in the front..
it looks ALOT like what i want mine to look like.. SIMPLE
and if you ever decide to change out wheels. i'd be interested in them datsun wheels/caps!!!!!

11-17-2009, 12:18 AM
thanks for the positive feedback

did you email chris or greg?

11-17-2009, 03:01 AM

if you could shoot me some pics man i'd really appreciate it!!!

12-02-2009, 12:39 AM

12-24-2009, 12:07 AM

12-24-2009, 12:50 AM

12-24-2009, 01:25 AM
Looks real clean.. Good job.. Rattle can or is from a gun?

12-24-2009, 04:09 AM
thats from a gun. its single stage with some flattener in it. it has more of a satin look to it

12-24-2009, 08:10 PM
got it unmasked earlier and found a few spots that need some touch up but it came out looking alright

03-31-2010, 06:58 PM
been a little while since i updated this. got most of everything under the hood reassemblemed and retro fitted for what i needed. the wiring harness has been extended and hooked back up. ive been working on shaving the cowl panel and have that in primer now. that should be blocked and reprimed by the end of the week. made a filler panel for the wiper motor and got that painted today. just need reinstalled. im taking the bed out to my friends shop to have a rust spot fixed and a little bit of body work. and thats pretty much up to date.

06-19-2010, 11:46 PM
alright well there are some things happening with the truck. most things up until now have been small piddly stuff and some planning. but this weekend actually got something done worth posting
i started working on the sheetmetal in the bed.
got the inner bedsides tacked in and the wheel wells are tacked as well
also when i had it at the shop had some work done on the tailgate
im gonna have the front inner panel made to match the tailgate. hopefully get that this week. then i guess im gonna lay some sheetmetal in the floor. that means lots of welding and bodywork.

06-20-2010, 02:29 AM
looking good!!! keep it up...

06-20-2010, 03:35 AM
hell yeah keep em comeing..

06-21-2010, 04:45 AM
looking good bro keep up the good work.

06-21-2010, 11:42 PM
Ive got a cali combo for a 85 nissan 720 if your interested. PM me if you are

06-22-2010, 02:13 AM
Ive got a cali combo for a 85 nissan 720 if your interested. PM me if you are
i appreciate the offer but im gonna pass. i did that on my last truck and that was one of the things i regretted doing just for losing the functionable tailgate. put it up for sale on here. there are a few of us 720 guys on here and im sure one will snatch it up

thanks guys. hopefully the schedule allows for some more garage time this weekend

06-29-2010, 12:01 AM
looks pimp nice work when you gonna have time to do mines lol jk

06-29-2010, 12:06 AM
this will probably be my last bed that i do. i did my last truck and a few others. if i had the money i would pay to have this one done it way to much welding and body work

01-27-2011, 03:08 AM

so after waiting for awhile to get my truck in the shop i decided to take it to another shop to get some stuff done
--had a notch cover made--
