Re: 1966 C10 Daily Driver

Looks good. I'm looking forward to seeing how it sits with all the sheetmetal back on. This is basically the same suspension setup I'd like to run too.

Re: 1966 C10 Daily Driver

We are officially a driver now, I've put 35 miles on her since Monday. I've got a final burn down list a mile long, but the stress of having an unfinished project is over. Left out a lot of documentation, the excitement of driving got to me... but let me say the windshield, bleeding the clutch and brake, and wiring have been a blast...

Immediately over the next couple of days I am going to finish the gauges, replace all the glass run channels in the doors, and get an alignment. Driving down the road sounds like jingle bells with all the dry rotted moulding in the glass channels.

Re: 1966 C10 Daily Driver

Gauges are in and working. I went with the Dakota Digital VFD3-64C-PU in Teal. It was pretty straight forward to install. The American Auto Wire harness had all the connections right there so I took me less the an hour. I did decide to use the Dakota Digital OBD2 interface so I wouldn't have to add any extra sensors to the motor or run any more wire, so the only thing that is "wired" in is the fuel level, turn signal indicators, MIL, and high beam indicator. Adding the wipers today, then I need to rig in something for the choke hole.

Went and filled it up with it's first tank of gas today and hit mile 40. Knocked quite a bit off the burn down list this weekend. Replaced the reverse lights with LMC specials, and hooked them up at the transmission, all the door glass rubber, and gave it a string alignment.

No, it's at the highest I could hand tighten the coil overs, I guess it could go 2 inches lower or 2 inches higher, but it ended up working out perfect, nothing hits, so I ain't touching it. In the future I'de love to find a set of scales and balance it out, but thats way down the road.

How/where did you hook up your reverse lights to the T56? Sweet truck!

T56 has a reverse light switch on the front passenger side. Uses a two prong weather pack connector, I had a spare pigtail in my toolbox, but amazon has them for like ten bucks. http://a.co/d/3BE7dFG
