Stock brackets with a remote reservoir power steering pump for the hydro-boost. No AC but Holley makes a bracket for the smaller aftermarket Sandon compressor. I may add AC later...but I planned to go soft top or just bikini top..

Re: New to me 1972 K5

I hope to bring the truck home from the body guy (aka free storage place) this weekend. I still need to plumb brake and fuel lines. Finish wiring and fire it up. It will need a front drive shaft and the transfer case shifters installed as well. Once it running I'll work on custom bumpers and maybe a roll bar... (it sill has the small tires on the rear in these pictures)

Re: New to me 1972 K5

One of the extras I picked up over the Christmas holiday was a billet dash bezel from Ringbrothers. I had covered a repop plastic dash bezel in Line-X but wasn't happy with the look. I will have the new one powder coated along with the glove box door. They will match and the texture will similar to the OE bezel in a wrinkle black powder coat. This will hold my Dakota Digital gauges.

Re: New to me 1972 K5

Got it.
Cleaned out all the parts that were packed in the bed for transport.
Pulled the chassis and engine harness. I want to move the ECU under the hood.
I also had a local fab shop build some bolt on front shock hoops and an engine cross member...

I have some NiCopp lines for fuel deliver and brake lines that I need to straighten, bend to fit and install... but its been 110* one average... probably hotter in the garage...

Re: New to me 1972 K5

I pulled engine harness and main harness as I didn't like the way everything was routed.
I remounted the fuse panel and ordered some flange mount Deutsch connectors to run the rear light harness and front light harness through the firewall separately.

I also ordered NiCopp line, 3/8 for fuel and 3/16 for brake line. I plan on using factory style connectors at the fuel rail and tank by converting from the NiCopp like to OEM nylon fuel line with GM connectors.

Re: New to me 1972 K5

I eliminated the factory trim on the tailgate and tail lights. I broke down and ordered some American Billet tail light bezels. If you're not using factory trim, these are awesome...

Looks good. The black trim is a nice modern look with the LEDs and white paint.
