  1. Almost there..... 95% finished! Thanks to everyone that contributed answers to my inquiries.

      I didn’t help you at all , but like you I have gotten a huge amount of help over the years from people on here. Happy motoring ! 

  2. I am getting ready to install a new stereo in my '76 KC. Can anybody tell me where I can tap power from? It would be helpful to know the harness wire colors for both switched +12v and for solid +12. I am sure I can connect a fused wire to the + side of the battery for the solid +12V (to keep radio settings when the truck is off). I do have an unconnected loose solid blue wire hanging in the dash where the radio opening is.... does anyone know if it is tied to the ignition? (switched?). Thanks in advance.
  3. This is VERY close to what I am looking for...... I can do 15's, 16's, 7" wide, 8" wide............ etc. Again, the question is, what offset and back spacing would get me there? Would 16's with 0 back space and 0 to -5mm offset work? if these are 16" wheels, can you guesstimate the tire size from the picture? (Sorry in advance for stealing this photo).
  4. Just realized.... "filling the wheel well" is a bad description. I just want to fill the opening more when you are looking at the side profile of the truck. (God, I hope I am making sense).
  5. Rick-rat, If the 16's fill the wheel well, probably not. Possibly might lower the front by 1/2" and could add 1" lowering blocks to give a very slight forward slant, but really no more. I would only consider lowering as "finishing touch" if there is still a little too much space. Nothing radical, I'm not going to modify fenders, etc. Like I said, I am really looking for the "70's" look. If 16's are too extreme, I would go with 15's. Thanks for replying so quickly.
  6. I am trying to decide about wheels and tires for my 1976 620, but I'm not technical enough to make sure I get the right sizes..... ANY help would be appreciated. I am looking at 16", 7 or 8 inch width wheels and "semi" low profile tires....... looking to get that 70's look. (looking at U.S. Wheel chrome 75 Series). I had very similar wheels on a 620 I bought new in 1977. I want the wheels/tires to fit flush to the wheel wells and want to make sure I can fully turn the front wheels. What I need to know most is that given my description, what offset and backspacing do i need? Also, wheat size tires for these wheels would fit properly? Thanks in advance.

  8. Thanks for the info. I'll contact them. Dave
  9. I know this is old, but on the off-chance, I tried emailing Al at the email listed.... you guessed it.... no longer a valid email address. I am looking for the "KING CAB" and "5 SPEED" decals that go on the tailgate. Can anyone point me in a direction where I might find them or someone who makes them? Thanks, Dave
  10. I have a 76 King Cab and have seen a lot of pictures of later model 620's that have a panel that covers the inside of the tailgate. I would like to get a rust-free / dent-free panel (as rust-free and dent-free as possible anyway) to install on my tailgate. Anyone have one for sale? How much for it plus shipping? I'm located in southern California. Dave
  11. Steve, I just gotta say..... you are doing GORGEOUS work! I have been doing the same type of detail stuff on my 76 KC, replacing stuff and derusting or replacing every nut, bolt and screw that I can along the way. Fantastic job......... Thanks for the info on the paint! Dave
  12. What color/brand of paint did you use? I am in the process of trying to find a matching color to do mine.
  13. Lumlo, THANK YOU! As always, you go above and beyond. Let me know any time I can assist you... I owe ya! Dave
  14. Lumlo, I hate to ask another question because you have been more than helpful already, but do you know the length of the jack rod with the hook on it? I can't find a nice one anywhere so far and figure I'll just have one fabricated if I can figure out the measurements. Thanks, Dave
  15. Dawa, yeah there are black sponge-like seals that are glued to the oval plate on the hinge so that when you close the hood, air doesn't leak into the cab. I am going to take Pharouh's advice and just look for something that will work. Dave
