Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Bolted the bed back to the frame. Installed the tail lights and tailgate. She's ready to drive but I will probably wait until spring. We'll see. Here are some pics.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Swapped out rad supports in my 69 (68 front clip) Had to be 80 plus degrees today. Great Sunny Florida day today to work on the C-10. Here's some pics. The electric fan and tranny cooler are just sitting there but will be set in place within the next week.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

I drove My 84 k-5 blazer into a pond, got it stuck, because the stock auto hubs didnt work, then I walked a 1/2 mile to get a tractor, pulled it out, went to orielleys, got some Mile Marker locking hubs, installed them, and took it through the pond again... and it made it! I love mud trucks!

Now THERE's a Shop!!!!!!

If I had your shop, I'd have had at least six hours of wrenching bliss today. As it was, I couldn't even get the gumption up to slog down to the
shop to show a couple of family members the project they've never seen before.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Painted the driver's side inner fender well. Cleaned and primed the trans crossmember. Removed the outside mirrors and scrapped the weatherstripping from the door openings.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Just mocked up the Boss 338 rims. 20x10 rear, 20x8.5 front. Checking clearances and determining tire sizes.

Beautiful. Do you know the back-spacing. Will you share the tire sizes you come up with when you do?

And, what about the source of your 338's?

Thanks very much for the pretty pics.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Today I Blocked/wet-sanded inside of bed and started putting it back together. Tomorrow I will test fit tailgate and finishing bolting it down, install tubs, block out side of quarter panels etc. Will have it painted by the end of the week.

Yes, the 20x10 Boss 338s come with 6.225" but we added 1.24" spacers to get them out close to the fenders. The are dangerously close so going with a 275 tire at first. May even need to to the inner fender modification. We'll see. My buddy works at a Discount Tire so he call the warehouses and found the fronts in CA and the rears in TX. I understand they may be hard to get. Good luck.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

You guys have some phat ass projects going on and the quality of the work you guys do is insane. I haven't seen a poorly done truck yet on this site. Thanks

For today I am still clearing 8 years of junk from the garage in order to get the gmc inside.
slowly sifting and purging through boxes sucks!

Waiting to get the cab top primed and painted new windshield asap...

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Shopped for drop shocks from several suppliers. Looks like Summit is the cheapest but takes 5 days to ship to you. I think I will pay the 1$10 difference and buy from Advanced Auto.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Cleaned up the interior and installed my seatbelts. Picked up a flip down license plate holder off a 92 Caprice for my behind the plate gas tank.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Ran out of money for the build, but it didn't stop me from dropping the front suspension from the frame on the '69.
