Lizzy and I have been working on granddads C10.

It is very fun to climb around on.

We have accomplished quite a bit since August.

we have the new 350, manifold, clutch and transmission all back in the truck.

New head lamps and LED parking lights.

I have given the wiring a bit of attention. All bulbs but the headlights are being converted to LED arrays.

Removed the bed to rehab the rear end.

After

New coil springs, shocks, fluids, stainless brake lines and POR-15 rust coating.

I also moved a frame cross member and installed a 31 gallon Blazer fuel tank and plumbed in a fuel line.

Rough fit, the tank actually ended up 3″ further aft.

The interior has been worked on, cleaned up.

New seat belts, new seat cover, all new gauges in a new dash insert, horn  circuit rebuilt.

Here are some teaser before pictures.

Whats Left?

The front disk brake conversion and brake bleeding needs to be done. After that we put the bed back on and plumb the fuel fill hose.  The truck then drives to a local shop for a new exhaust system and windshield install.  After that we find a body shop and spend some money.
