I need to learn to read better, The following is for a early chevy van!!! I make my own welding a battery tray from a 74 C10 and strap from the hardware store or the junk pile. You can either use the 74 C10 hold down, or get the stock style from rockauto or somewhere, a combination of Dorman 390012 and Performance Tool W1691C. They turn out nice. I also picked up a rivet nut tool and the needed shorty drill bits to attach them to the frame. I thought about putting them on the driver side for weight balance, but am happier with them both on one side, I can access both batteries through the top trap door, or since I relocated and made the rear shield removable, can access the back one from underneath. Good Luck!

Tell me about it...
I've got a set of BF Goodrich Trail TAs on my '72 Chevy pickup that are at least 15 years old.
They don't have cracks, and they all hold air just fine.
None of our newer tires have lasted like those.

I found when I replaced the gauge cluster's 94 bulbs with LEDS, they were too bright and the dimmer switch would only dim them slightly before they just shut off.
New 168 bulbs are physically the same size, but a smidge brighter than 194's.
I went back to Incandescent, red incandescent bulbs, in my gauge cluster, with the green filters/lenses removed.
I had replaced the high beam indicator with a blue LED. WAY Tooo bright, defeating the purpose of high beams.
Same with green turn signal indicator bulbs. just blinding bright at night, returned to incandescent.
Old incandescent bulbs dim with age, so new 194s will likely be a significant brightness increase, but 168s are a few more lumens.
i love LEDs, but found implementing them in my Gauge cluster to be a fustercluck that I had to undo.
I second this.
If you want to keep the old school feel/not get blinded, LED lights are tricky and only useful in certain applications.

Maybe you can provide more details on the brand/models of gauges used and how you cut the holes along with what cutting tools used for everything to fit? Looks like a very nice installation……

Well have come to the conclusion that there is no way I am going to be able to re-install the original radio antenna for my 91 G-20 so wondering if anyone can suggest a high quality antenna that will fit correctly?
