BACK FROM PAINT… AND NOW ON WITH THE LITTLE THINGS
Now that the ’66 Stepside is back from paint, it’s time to get on with the “little” things. Wheels, tires and bumpers will come later… but today I installed some small parts I had ordered a while back. One of the few problems with this truck when I bought it, was the rattling window glass and metal to metal sound that shook the world when you shut the doors too hard. It sounded like they were coming off their hinges! A quick scan of the LMC catalog revealed the answers to both problems.
These door bumpers were missing on both sides so getting new ones installed made a big difference…
… and these window inserts (also known as a “rattle kit”) resolved the window issue.
You can see by the example below that the ones I took out (on the left) had little to no pad left on them… and obviously were well past the time of replacement.
