Photo 2/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 2 | LMC Truck’s catalog is full of just about everything you need to rebuild your truck, including all the glass and rubber for your ’67-to-’72 F100. For Speed Bump, we replaced the windshield, backlight, and side glass.
Photo 3/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 3 | Here you can see the new LMC-sourced door seals being temporarily held in place by tape while the adhesive sets. When using weatherstrip adhesive, we made sure to apply it to the rubber, rather than to the body, to ensure a stronger bond.
Photo 4/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 4 | Our tired old vent window frames were worn out, pitted, and in serious need of an overhaul. We stripped them down and had them refinished before rebuilding them with parts from the LMC catalog.
Photo 5/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 5 | After we picked up our newly freshened frames from the powdercoater, we dropped them off at the glass shop and had the vent windows sent in the frames with glass setting tape.
Photo 6/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 6 | Note the window latch and hardware of the ’67 F100 is a different design than that of later years.
Photo 7/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 7 | Moving to the vent window frame, we installed a new gasket, which makes a waterproof seal when the vent window is closed.
Photo 8/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 8 | The completed window channel and vent window frame form one unit that is ready to be installed in the door.
Photo 9/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 9 | Next, we turned our attention to the LMC Truck EVA sound-deadener mats. These 30x24-inch mats are adhesive-backed and easily mold to the contours of any floor pan.
Photo 10/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 10 | LMC Truck offers this small rolling tool, which helps speed up the installation of the EVA mat by making it easier to form to the truck and adhere in tight places.
Photo 11/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 11 | Some ’67-to-’72 F100s have a removable transmission cover. This version, known as the “high hump,” is from a two-wheel-drive, C6 automatic-equipped truck and gives the most transmission clearance. Certain four-wheel-drive and manual versions of the high hump have cutouts for the shifters.
Photo 12/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 12 | After a day of cutting and rolling, we finally finished covering the entire floorboard, plus the firewall and back of the cab with the LMC Truck EVA sound-deadening mats.
Photo 13/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 13 | We took advantage of the extra EVA material left over and covered the inside of the doors for additional sound-deadening benefit.
Photo 14/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 14 | The ABS firewall pad is shaped to conform to the firewall and has knockouts for various holes. The pad is backed with insulation material, which should help keep heat in the engine bay.
Photo 15/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 15 | Before we could install the pad, we had to first remove the steering column and our parking brake assembly.
Photo 16/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 16 | We then trimmed the pad to fit around our brake pedal bracket assembly and ididt steering column.
Photo 17/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 17 | With the pad trimmed to our satisfaction, we mocked it up and reinstalled the parking brake assembly and steering column. This particular part is a close, but not exact, fit. It took us time, patience, and a little finesse before we were happy with the fit.
Photo 18/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 18 | Once the pad was where we wanted it, we used these LMC-supplied push retainers to lock it in place.
Photo 19/19 | Project Speed Bump Part 11 19 | Despite being a fairly time-consuming process, our patience and persistence paid off and we were rewarded with the results we were looking for.
