Vette's Slow 96 Build

Not much but I figured why not. I'm a 16 year old without a job so there isn't much. I don't have any pictures of when I got her. The first thing I did was got new leafs because the old ones were snapped in half. Then I bedlinered the bumpers after getting the dents out the best I could (previous owner used the truck to takeout a fence). I talked to my stepdad (he owns a tire shop) about some tires and ended up with some cooper discovers on aluminum alloys as a christmas present. I worked for my uncle and ended up with a toolbox.



Wanted to give my shifter some style so I made this out of a 4x4 block.

The grill was chipping and I don't love chrome so I blacked it out.

Talked to my stepdad again and ended up with a rollbar. Went to BigR and got some tractor utility lights to hookup for now.


Didn't like not having a center consule but still wanted the option of a center seat so I made this.

It's strapped in with the center seatbelt so I can take it out if I want to.

Light comparison.

highs and utility lights

I have a guy thats going to help me make some bumpers once I get the money for materials.

I just took it off, took out the emblem, scratched it and rattle canned it.
