Truly amazing with what your doing with this truck. I'm inspired. Great work man. How did you get the overhead console in? I'd like to do a lot of this, but my truck is mAinly for off road use. I'm torn lol

for the overhead console i just screwed it into the ceiling of the cab... the ceiling is two layers of metal with a gap in between so i just used short screws and only screwed it in a bit as i didn't want to puncture the outer layer - it worked great.

originally i tried adhering some plywood to the ceiling, but it just wouldn't hold once the console was screwed into it.

I have to say that this is the very best Silverado project I ever seen. Amazing work and dedication, congratulations for such a great truck you built, very good taste in every mod... I'm also inspired to start my own Silverado project!

Thanks a lot!

Re: The never ending build of my '89 stepside

the most recent modification was to the front end - nothing too major...

i swapped out the stock chevy emblem for a chrome one and i replaced the orange corner markers with clear/white ones

even though it was just a small mod, i think it made a big change to how the front of the truck looks




i also replaced my stock steering wheel with a Grant steering wheel - again, nothing crazy, but i really like the new look!

I love it. My 92 is a stepside extended cab 4X4. I bought it brand new for my wife and then got myself a 92 long bed extended cab 4X4. Now my oldest son has my long bed and my youngest has my 02 Trailblazer. Yeah, I gave it to him so I could get the stepside back because he was in the process of trashing it. He claims he was just driving it like a truck should be driven. Spring time I am having drivers side rocker panel and cab corner replaced. Passenger side was totaled when my son ran a stop sign and a goy was going 50 in a 25 and t-boned him. Bought it back from the insurance company and still had 3200. cash left so I had it fixed. That ide of the cab looks great. No dog tracking because the frame wasn't bent.

i haven't updated this thread much over the last while, so i figured i'll throw in a few pics...






and for a really minor addition... i picked up a couple LED strips to add a little more light to the interior of the cab. i tied them in with the other floor lights that turn on when a door is opened
