Default Project Flashback

If there are any of you that are not familiar with the house of hack Iwill be updating this thread soon with work that has been done to my truck over time. For now there is a pic in my user gallery until I get to update this thread

JUST WANTED TO EDIT THIS FOR ANYONE THAT MAY BE STUMBLING ON IT FOR THE FIRST TIME: To clarify The House of Hack changed it's name to McClarys Metal Works any links to the hoh site site are dead. Just wanted to clarify the identiy true. I'm editing this 5-12-12 I started this build in 2002. MMW started work on this truck in 2005. It is still an in progress build awaiting completion from MMW.
Edit July 15 truck is running again and progress is being made towards completion.

Here is the link to "Project Flashback" on HoH website http://www.thehouseofhack.com/James.html
It's been in and out numerous times
When mat first got his hands on the truck it had already been bagged on leafs...man, I regret not having it done right the first time, but you live and learn right. I took it to mat to link the rear and body drop. At that time he also put on a new roll pan...this is when I went to the lights in the pan...note mat didn't do my light fillers


THIS IS THE TRUCK BEFORE GOING TO HoH



Just posted those so you could have a comparison and know what mat has done...
so the rest are a mix of in process pics and between shop trip pics
AFTER HoH GOT A HOLD OF IT:
the stepdown

link cross member with wicked gussets, bag mounts(I have some better shots of this I'll add later)

putting back together after body drop(more of bd in process pics later also)

I rocked the truck in white primer bd'd for a while then went back and mat shaved that hideous third brake light. Then the diamond tilt was also done before putting the truck in solid grey primer...not many pics of that took it to ShowFest06 then put the graphics on it.

because of the previously cut walk though we had to fix the back wall and made a flap...the wall will be going back next go around

diamond tilt hood




Mat designed the whole thing...I just told him I wanted a diamond tilt...and this was one time that I was glad it wasn't done the old school way... mat refused to use some home depot hinge..and it turned out great!

The next thing he got a hold of was the front end.
beefy ass nice bag mountsalso installed cando control arms
keep in mind he also had to cut off the old job that was there and re-enforce

after the front end was done was when the new wheels went on
also, at that time the stock hinge was done on the passenger door. We, cleaned up a lot more in the engine bay and installed electric fan.





it's not an HoH thread without a pesky bird hiding somewhere


moved what we could behind the firewall.


relay box gone

Hinze the name....thanks man. It always feels good when guys my age or older tell me that looking at my truck brings back many great memories. I know it does for me. I had a truck in the day, it was nice but nothing like some of the older guys that could do or could afford all the crazy tricked out arsenal of mods. After leaving home and getting out on my own it took a long time before I was in a position to where I could really build my truck. So when I was able to I wanted to build the truck of my dreams..that I had always wanted, regardless of the latest trend or fashion. Yeah it does have some things old and some new....anyway thanks. I do have more pictures believe it or not to add...of the polished parts under the hood and more build pics.
