Sometimes, it's the simplest things that make all the difference in the world. Take for example, our resident red '67 Chevy longbed. When we're not performing some sort of installation for the magazine; the truck usually just sits backed into a corner of our magazine group's warehouse. After walking past the truck every day and staring at the bent and faded red trim that resides up front, we decided that we should do something about it.
LMC Truck has an entire catalog devoted specifically to '67-72 Chevrolet trucks and Blazers and is packed with just about everything you need to restore one of these trucks. They were the perfect place to order what we needed for the '67, which included the grille and headlight bezels, the front and side Bow Tie emblems, the Chevrolet letters for the hood, and the front turn-signal lenses. The truck already received new bumpers in the not-too-distant past, so we held off on the triple chrome units that LMC offers. We placed our order and the parts arrived quickly, so we hit up Installation Jason in the Primedia Tech Center to give us a hand with the install. In just a few hours and a little elbow grease, the '67 looked 100 times better. Stay tuned for more do-it-yourself installs on the red '67. This truck is coming along so nicely; we may even need to hit a few shows with it in the coming months.
