1979 Chevrolet 1/2-Ton Stepside Project, Part V
After any finished sport truck project build, we like to sit back and admire the results (like the beautiful red finish that adorns the sheetmetal of Operation Retro Ride). And at the same time we lament that the project is over and we have to turn our attention to upcoming projects.
Before we show the final assembly of Operation Retro Ride we want to remind you, our readers who are working on or just completing your very own sport truck builds, to keep in mind that the final assembly process shouldn't be a hurry-up-and-throw-the-pieces-on procedure. The same amount of time and devotion you spent tearing the project apart needs to be spent when you reassembe the project. Care should be taken to prevent scratching the freshly painted surfaces or nicking that freshly chromed bumper, and when tweaking that ultra-hard-to-find interior piece.
Again, top-notch quality standards must be maintained to ensure a well-constructed retro sport truck. Just as the expert folks at California Street Rods have been an integral part of our past builds, they again stepped up to help in the final assembly.
