Winter 19/20 66 C10 build

Hi Guys and gals,
I try and do one build a year and have another on deck for when i finish. I've got a few other truck projects posted here but am just finishing up my 1957 Chevy 210 build and am poised to start my next. I bought this 66 in April and drove over to Mass to bring it home. I stripped it down quick to see what i was working with and then mapped my plan and started buying up parts. Ill replace most of the body parts but the cab is super clean for this area and will only require a few days patching work. I read about all of the help received from a guy named "Boris" here in the group so i reached out to him for advice on an Airbag set up as this will be my first air-ride vehicle and he was VERY helpful!. I plan to run air ride, dropped spindles with cupped control arms and a c-notch in the rear. 20x10 rears and 20x8 fronts. New 383 with th350 trans and basic performance pieces as needed. the body will remain stock appearing and uncluttered. I picked an obscure color that i had seen on a custom Camaro and then for the first time ever had a computerized rendering done. I'm very happy i did! the guy was awesome to work with and the truck is exactly as i had envisioned it. Parts are coming in and summer is winding down.. When i get started things tend to go fast but ill update as i progress!
