Heavy Metal Tow Truck [S7 Ep. 2-2]
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! Part 2
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!
Heavy Metal [S4 Ep.9-1]
Today on GEARZ, Stacey rolls in that old International Cab over Truck, and starts a project called Heavy Metal. The project not only showcases people that work with their hands for a living, but also represents the Navy's Blue Angels precision flying team. The first order up for business is to get some serious power into the truck and that involves Stacey stuffing a hot-rodded Duramax Diesel engine and Allison transmission into the old beast. If you have ever wondered what it takes to retro-fit a big diesel engine into a project, and if there are parts available to make it happen... this show will not only answer those questions, but also encourage you to do it!
