A Littles History and a Rollcage for My Chevy C10: Finnegan's Garage Ep.87

It's a new year and a new decade so why not look back on the history of my 1967 Chevrolet C10 show truck while also crafting a custom-build roll cage for it? The dudes from MRC Fabrication in Walnut Grove, North Carolina, dropped by the garage to help build a cage that will stiffen the tube chassis and provide a measure of safety if I ever crash the truck at high speeds. Remember these are the guys who installed the Mittler Bros Hydroshox:
on the C10 last year. They also installed a new mandrel bent front clip and suspension.
My plan is to drive this truck this year so keep an eye out for more videos on its progress. Want a shirt, hoodie, hat or FSM stickers? visit my store:
I've even got gear dedicated to this unfinished project of mine! thanks for watching:

How in the hell do you weld the top of the halo bars or any others you can't see? You must explain this to us! I'm sure I'm not the only one wondering about this.

Why is the cage built so far away from the a-piller? My mate used to build cages for world rally cars and their just a few mm of the piller so very little tie in is needed flush fit cage

did you change out your tires on the forge lines i watched the vid where you had tires mounted up with the zero weight balance that was impressive learnt that sweet air down then re air up trick to bring the tire back to true . props

Take that Firewall back about 6" and set your engine back about 4" and it really really makes them handle a ton better.

You guys need some bionic face shields as much as you use those cutting wheels.

Suit up or at least a full face shield. I took a divot out of a finger with a flap wheel once in a hurry. Damned if it didn't grow back.

I always thought diagonal bars going through the back of a pick up ruins the look. I know its not NHRA legal but maybe place them slightly above the bed rail to maintain the not a race truck look. Just add more triangulation in other areas if the decreased safety bugs you.

I don't understand why people cut their dash like that. It looks terrible. Especially being something old and not easily replaceable. Is there a reason you couldn't just hole saw it and slide the tubing through?

Question, I've been watching the progress you are making on this thing for about 2 years now. I'm 67 years old. Are you going to get this thing finished before I croak or am sh*t outta luck. Because if I'm outta luck I will just quit watching it now..........

Laid-off, go figure. After working for and being laid-off by a few car mags, this the exact reason I got out of publishing in the late-90s. The writing was on the wall with the advent of the internet and social-media platforms. Plus, the salary really sucked working as an Editor.

I highly recommend using Bend Tech if you have SolidWorks CAD and work with roll cages a lot. We used it in engineering school for an off-road baja project and it saved us so much time during bending and fabrication of the roll cage. There is even a feature where you can take your 3D CAD model and print out the shape of the end of a joint on paper and then put the paper on the end of tube stock to show you how to notch the end to get the angle you want. I really enjoy your videos!

Can you do fish plates through the back of the cab? Would be cool and functional and not so hard to weatherproof rather than just a bar coming through the cab......cab is still removable if need be!

Great video as always. I would like to know more about the stands, mainly the ends that hold the tubes. The look to have a lock , then a fine adjustment bolt.

so instead of a 3400 accessory kit... a mini cooper electric power steering pump should solve your issue. you're welcome

Enjoy the videos and all the road kill stuff cant wait for your new show to come on. I live about 30 mins from your town but in the town next door to yours every day Hope one day to run into you at a store or something and get to meet you. You seem like genuine good person and humble to. Most famous people are ass holes you don't seem to be that way.

Finnigan, this is kinda random but you have had your time in the spotlight made some coin and you have a chance to get out before scandal. Maybe you should take it. If your country has taught us anything the path of famous people rarely ever end well.

Have you seen the new Mercedes Benz M256 engine? It has an IAS or integrated starter/alternator. It is also a 21 BHP motor with 160 ftpbs of torque. Theirs is located at the back of the engine, but as an aftermarket item I'd want to replace the front damper with it. BTW the engine has no accessory belts. None. Zero. The A/C compressor has a built-in electric motor. The water pump is electric as is the power steering. The system runs at the upcoming standard of 48 volts and has a modest Lithium Ion battery pack and a 48 to 12 volt converter for legacy accessories. Think what you can do in terms of packaging in cramped hot rods. Engine warm? Run the water pump after shutting the engine off. Check it out. It's cool.
