HEAVY METAL Exhaust [S6 Ep.12-3]
Today on GEARZ, Stacey rolls Heavy Metal back into the shop and begins to lay out some of the incredible modifications that he is going to be doing on this old junk yard '69 International Cabover truck. A custom four-link air suspension goes on first, and then a slick air brake system to pull this big monster to a stop. A custom Exhaust is also laid out, along with numerous other modifications to make this a one of a kind rig. If you have ever wondered if a Cabover could make a cool hot rod, you need to check this out. From there it's off to the movies as Stacey digs into the impact and influence movie cars have on our lives and culture. To prove that point, He brings in actor Dax Shepard and his cool '67 Lincoln Continental that are both starring in the new movie "Hit and Run". So strap in and hold on, 'cuz we might get airborne on this ride!
Heavy Metal Tow Truck [S7 Ep. 2-1]
Today on GEARZ, project Heavy Metal is back as Stacey rolls the old International cab over truck into the shop so he can outfit it with a vintage Holmes dual wrecker bed. It is auto recycling at its best as the big truck continues to come together using parts from a junkyard wrecker, swap meet vintage beer kegs, and even some new aftermarket parts. If you've always thought that you had to spend big money to build a unique vehicle, this "Heavy Metal" truck will not only change your mind, but probably have you digging through old junkyards and checking out pastures in hopes of finding a vintage truck project of your own! That's a typical reaction...and that's typical for GEARZ!
Sgt.Rock/ Heavy Metal Tow Truck [S7 Ep. 11-3]
Today on GEARZ, Stacey rolls in SGT. ROCK to take care of things like steering, brakes, and the Exhaust system. With a quick trip to Stainless Works for a custom set of headers and Exhaust system, and with the layout of the four-wheel hydraulic steering, It won't be long before this big military beast will be rolling under its own power. After that, He takes on some seating issues in the Heavy Metal tow truck. Just because a project may have come out of a junkyard, doesn't mean it has to continue to look like junk. Stacey proves that by adding a custom bomber-style seat to this already VERY unique vehicle... If you're looking for creative solutions to common restoration issues, this episode of GEARZ is the one to see! Part 3
Junkyard Truck [S4 Ep.2-1]
On this episode, Stacey goes where all of us have been before to pull an old derelict SEMI TRUCK ('69 Loadstar/International) out of a quiet junkyard to demonstrate the steps necessary to get an old, neglected vehicle running again. From rat's nests to chicken poop, it's all here as Stacey slowly coaxes the old truck back to life. This show definitely drives the point home that if something like this can be revived, there's NOTHING that you should be afraid to tackle as long as you are armed with a set of tools and a sense of adventure! Go get 'em!
