Re: Frankentruck

Yesterday I gave Frankentruck a bath, but didn't finish up until dark. She cleans up well for crappy paint.

Once I source a second lower radiator bracket and pad I'll be able to put the radiator in the v8 location.

Re: Frankentruck

Today is Tuesday, so of course I had to go up to the Varsity in Dawsonville for the weekly cruise night. Frankentruck ran flawlessly as usual, and I saw several sweet c10s.

I really liked this 65 that rolled in for a bit

That 65 looks to have had an older restoration, but it was done well and put back to stock. I love the factory radio in it. One day Frankentruck will look that good Thanks for tuning in!

Re: Frankentruck

Not doing much with Frankentruck other than driving a bunch. Going up to Blue Ridge this evening for a cruise in. I'm sure I won't be the only c10 there.

Re: Frankentruck

Yesterday evening my mom and I went up to Blue Ridge, GA, for the cruise in at the Dairy Queen. Frankentruck ran great, and there were some great trucks to see. The only issue was sitting in traffic with no AC On the way home, I realized that I had not shut the valve for the heater core off so that made it a little warmer than it should have been... I turned it off today

The red truck is a factory 65 k10 with the original frame and transfer case. Has an ls and 4l60e now and a disc brake front axle. Really nice truck

The GMC panel is a NAPCO truck I think, but not sure. It did have a PTO driven winch

The white one is a Cameo pickup. Really nice restomod with a big block

Re: Frankentruck

Today was spent doing some work on the Dakota and helping my dad clean up the garage a bit and put together his new tool box.

I wet sanded the headlights with 240 grit to knock off the oxidation, then followed with 1000 grit wet sand until the water made the lenses clear again. Ate lunch while the water dried off. After lunch, I cleaned the lenses with rubbing alcohol and the blue shop towels. Masked off the front end by cutting a trash bag down the seams and then cutting out the headlights. Used masking tape to hold the bag in place and cover around the headlights. Gave it a couple coats of Rustoleum clear coat and let it dry for a few hours. Once the paint fully cures (take 24 hours), I'll be able to give her a desperately needed bath.

After that, I started helping my dad put together his new tool box. The top part weighs 260 pounds empty, so we found another use for my engine hoist outside of hoisting engines . It was a little sketchy, but we got it on top without throwing out any backs or losing any digits. We will continue to clean up the garage tomorrow

Re: Frankentruck

Enjoyed going thru your thread young man. Here some info on trans (speedo) gears from Hot Rod https://www.hotrod.com/articles/cali...-speedometers/ I had 2read it a few times, & still cornfused! 4 stubborn rustd bolts, nutz, get mapp gas cylindr/torch head (not a propane torch, cuz it burns hotter than propane). You may have 2 heat/ cool 2,3 times to get stuff lose! I mix dot 3 brake fluid w/ older type g.m. tranny fluid in a oil squirt can, let soak overnite if possible, itíll wick right in to even the most rusted fasteners. For electrical problems, check grounds first, sometimes Harbor Freight has a little ohm/volt multimeter coupon 4 free, itís a lot cheaper than guessing/replacing expensive electronics. Read up on it, one guy replaced alternator, voltage regulator, starter only to find all problems were caused by dirty or no ground wires! And sooo we learn by doing. You are in my prayers, brother. God Bless
