My 77 D100 Street Rod Truck Build
« on: June 18, 2012, 09:21:05 PM »
D1 MODEL DESIGNATION  D100 or D150 for 80
4 BODY TYPE  Conventional Cab W/Sweptline (Standard Box)
A GVW CLASS  6000 lbs or less
E ENGINE TYPE  318-1
7 MODEL YEAR  1977
S ASSEMBLY PLANT  Warren Plant No 1


This is the way I purchused the truck .the truck is a fatory 318ci V8 automatic with factory Air Conditioning . Originally it was a black exterior on black interior from factory . The truck sits 4 inches in front and 6 inches rear lower . The truck has been lowered in a way that the fatory Dodge truck rear leaf springs and the front coil springs are still used , aswell as the stock spindles and brake assembly . The AC system is in the process of be replaced with a BeCool AC/heat system . The fire wall has been smoothed over because the new AC/heat unit is ompact enough to almost disapear from sight in the cab .

Welcome  ;D  Sounds like a cool build you got going on there.  I, for one, am a big fan of using factory bits to achieve better stuff.  It's just easier to keep a good ride without spending a fortune or cutting everything up.

Can't wait to see this one grow! Curious to see how the ac works out, we talked about it on the phone. That ac system is pretty nice.

here are pics of the modified rear hangers and the front lower A-arm .

The rear hangers , the front one was surgically cut and a piece of 3/16th plate was used to raise the pivit point of leaf spring . The rear factory shackle was lengthened as well to keep stock pinion angle .

The only thing modified on the front was lower A-arm was sliced and the coil spring perch was lowered down almost 4 inches and braced with 3/16th flat steel pieces welded in well to sturdy up and resemble stock A-arm .

All this was done to look stock like so DMV and State athorities can not say its is illegal for certain states (Virginia) lol

Oh and I raised the E-brake hanger from under the frame to the side of the frame to clear the true dual 3 inch exhaust coming off the headers 3 inch collecter straight back into 3 inch in/out Summit (Flow Master style) mufflers and then takes a 90% turn out infront of the rear tires to a 2-1/2"X8" rectangle black chrome tips

I didnt like the look of the factory body panel line on back of the cab .
So I wire brushed , sand blasted , and dug out the body caulk lol .
Then used Metal Bond to fill the gap .
Using a modified body filler paddle I cut a profile out to match the cab where the body line was .
Switched to USG Feather-Rite body filler to finesse the line to more of a unifornmed look across the back of the cab .
Primed first coat with Rust-oleum etching primer and then switched to Rust-oleum grey surface primer .

Just before starting Interior I had to do little body work and paint the Inside of the doors .
So that when I did start the interior I could bolt the doors back on ,
so that the interior would not get the weathered , because I'm Building my truck in the back yard out in the open lol

The factory AC/heater box was removed leaving a big hole in pass. side kick panel .
So I go to thinking when I was looking thru my extra parts and saw i had a few extra kick vents for driver side .
Next I mad a pattern or the drivers side vent hole and flipped it over to pass. side .
Marked the new vent hole area off , Then made a pattern of the piece of sheet metal I needed to fill in the rest of the factory vent hole . Welded in and finished off with padding and carpet .

 Mounted the Vintage Air AC/heater unit high and out out of sight under the dash .
I reused the factory defrost vents on top of dash using supplied flex hoses from Vintage Air.
The factory lower dash vents were reused and most of the hard plastic conection tubes were modified to accept the Vintage Air flex tubes .
 The factory AC/heater control unit was removed and the dash holw modified to accept the Vintage Air Control unit .

Ok so tell me how much did the BeCool run you. What will you be using for a compressor, and condenser? Did they supply that stuff and the lines?

The Vintage Air was a complete system for my truck I paid $600 extra for it from my Uncle that had the truck originally . I priced it out on the Internet and it runs $700-$1100 depending on what its going in and what all you need to install .
Mine came with all new hoses and wiring , compressor cooler radiator under dash unit , control head unit , and flex hoses .

Very cool.

When I swap a CTD into my 78 crew cab I'm going to have to do some switching around to make an A/C system for it. OR buy one of these.  ;)

I did a quick search and can't find a hole kit......  :-\

Windshield is NOS 13% factory tinted .
The rear glass was cleaned and tinted with 5% let thru Limo Black tint .
All Door glass was cleaned and tinted with 20% let thru Limo Black tint .
The steering column I disassembled and cleaned and re painted the shaft and cover tube Carbon Fiber Met. .
When i was sanding the 3 pieces that make up the shifter base and rest of column with key switch in it ,
I keep sanding with finer grit paper , till i hit 600 grit , I noticed how kewl it would look chrome .
So I went and found 1500 grit and kept sanding till it was smooth .
Took rubbing compound and polisher and poilshed it till it shined .
I let it sit in the Truck for a few months and it began to tarnish .
So I took back apart and repolished , then sprayed a few coats of Rust-oleum clear gloss automotive finish on it .
It being an automatic column I couldnt get the area infront of the gear indacator to polish right so i taped it off and sprayed it Carbon Fiber Met. to match lower column tube .

The factory 318ci was pulled and rebuilt .
A master rering and bearing kit was installed .
Along with a Edlbrook cam lifters , performer plus intake and carb set .
Carb was damaged in shipping so it was sent back .
Later on I was on Summit Racing looking thru carbs ,
and found that Holley rebuilds the Carter Thermoquads like found on most Dodge 4 barrel V8 .

Oh the 5 inch tall 14 inch air cleaner is from Summit too its a K&N style that comes with the chrome top and your choose of bottom carb plates ,I choose flat to clear the Thermo quad .

http://www.summitracing.com/search/?keyword=Summit%20Racing%AE%20Chrome%20Air%20Cleaners%20with%20Reusable%20Filters&dds=1

The white gauges in pics before are white gauge stickers that you just put on your gauges .
Best part is that all the gauges i looked at was $19.95  no matter what year make or model .
They have them for the 75-80 Dodge truck/RamCharger 81-93 truck/RamCharger and so on .
The gauge sets come with all the gauges that was offered in the years you are looking at .
And they offer the LED bulbs to replace the factory ones .

The front signal lights were being replaced with 68 Road Runner front signal lights when i got the truck .

My Dad was doing the work for his uncle that owned the truck previously .

When I got the truck and saw that the RR lights were not in good shape ,
I decided to replace them with 3/4 inch LED circle lights .

The first 4 pics is the work my dad did 7 years ago lol and the 5th pic is when i reworked the light area cutting out what was done and welding in a differant piece of xtra fender to smooth out the area .

The last is how I am painting the inside of the fender to match fire wall and door jam .

The 77 up on my lift so I can get under to get this lil Biotch rolling down the road lol .
Replace rear end with a 2000 Ram 1500 9-1/4" rear w/3.55 gears and a Mopar Locker .
bolts right in place no mods needed . Spring pads only 1/2"-1'' wider over all .
Sitting the axle faces 4 inches wider so that
2002 Dodge 1500 factory 20 inch Daisy style mags fit without spacers .
**Wheels to come later after its all painted and road ready**
I had to change out yokes of original 9-1/4' rear end to the 2000 one ,
so U-joint on factory 77 drive shaft would bolt in .

Started to set 3 inch exhaust system to find out what needed to be modified
or made so it will all hide away up in the frame . Those are Summit Racing mufflers ($30 each) ,
They look and sound just like FlowMaster Series 40 mufflers ($95 each) at almost a third of the price .

Should never have looked in here...making me want to work on my 79 D100.

Nice project you have, is it sitting at ride height on the lift?  I'm partial to the cop wheels like on the front in the one pic and they will be my go-to wheel on my 79.

So how does that work, are you are on your knees under there or sitting?

It looks like they tilt as you go up on them.

first of it needs to be on level ground to work SAFELY .lol
And best if you have a concrete pad or asphalt to use on , dirt and grass yard is HELL on knees .
I have a 1/2" thick rubber mat under most of mine for now .

You sit on ground if its a low vehicle and on a cart or a rolling seat depending on lifted vehicle .
I used a furniture cart/dolly (its 6" off ground) to sit on to change trans in my stock 2000 Dodge 1500 Ram 4X4 on 31" tires .

Lift tilts ,With nothing on it it will sit in tilt position , like in lower pic with truck on it , if you leave the ramps latched . Latch is just a L-hook that slips over a bolt extended off frame .

Lift pivites on middle legs and when enough weight gets on front if sit down leval on the ground .
Loading a vehicle on lift is like doing a tilt table ,You ease in the thottle till you feel it nose down and ease on the drakes , you'll go down nice and slow . lol

Lift is 2 indivisual up rights with two 1-1/4" thick wall tubes (cross brace / width holders)that have a hold bolt on tube that the cross brace slides into . You can see rear cross tube in middle pic . Crosses are placed close to the legs .

If you need more info let me know .
I'll try to remember to do some measurements and drawings and a material list later If any one wants it .

Are you sure you just didn't steal that lift from a used car lot?  ;D  I see them use them to display cars on lots around here. Looks like it works pretty slick.

HAHA It was on local new car dealership for years . Till an X-employee drove a $50G Cadilac Escalade off the front of it . Ending up down the 50 foot hill it was sitting on its top on Main street lol.
Owner fired the guy and said "take the lifts to the scrap yard . My Uncle was a salesman and he as he would pay scrap for one . So after it sat in his yard for 5 years . He ask me to sale it for him , he wanted what he paid ($150) , So I gave him the cash and hauled it to my house lol . I had to replace cross bars when i got them they had rusted in slide tubes . I made sure new bars were well greased with lithium grease that was water resistant . Makes it easier to adjust to differant width vehicles .
Later on I'm going to change cross bars out to 3/16 wall 2" sq steel tube , measuring sets of holes on ends for exact center to center measurements and use Reese hitch pins to lock it down for differant vehicles.
