This bed liner kit was extremely easy to use. Add hardener to the bottle. Shake to mix. Remove cap and insert spray gun. Spray bed liner. I used 2 of the 4 bottles. There's enough left over to spray the underside of the inner fenders if I want. Dries in about 1 hour. Looks great and is very tough. Once the bottles were empty, I cut them open and used a brush to apply the remaining product in the corners that were hard to get coverage with the spray gun.
I have 2 flywheels to choose from. My 1965 C10 flywheel uses a 10" clutch disc. My 1992 Camaro flywheel uses an 11" clutch disc. Since I need to use a 26 spline clutch disc, it makes sense to use the Camaro clutch kit package. An 11" Camaro clutch disc is easy to find, but a 10" disc with 26 splines is not common at all. Tomorrow I'll have my Camaro flywheel resurfaced and then order the clutch kit from Brake and Clutch Supply in Waco, Texas!
After I set the cab on the frame, I will mount a T5 transmission to the bell. Then I will mark the floor and cut a hole for the shifter. I had some extra T5 parts, so I assembled a case, top cover and tail housing to make an "empty T5". There's nothing inside, so It weighs about 10 pounds and will be very easy to handle by myself under the truck. I enlarged the mounting holes with a 1/2" drill bit.
The cab is laying on its back waiting for the bed liner to arrive in the mail so I can spray it on the bottom of the cab. So today I pulled the frame out into the yard to work on the drive train. After supporting the engine on jack stands, I removed the bell housing, flywheel and then the pilot bushing.
