Re: My 1970 GMC “Project Splice”

I did the Raptor Liner on the underside of the cab (over epoxy primer), and will epoxy prime inside the cab and then coat the floor, firewall, and part way up the back with Lizard Skin.

To finish my rust protection, inside the rockers and the void in inside the roof area will be coated with Waxoyl. The truck should never rust again...

That sounds like a solid plan right there. Should be impenetrable.

Re: My 1970 GMC “Project Splice”

Well there was no progress last week as my Sunday was much too busy with getting Daphne baptized, but this week I have had the afternoon to work on the cab. I have been putting more marglass in the passenger door jamb. It is coming out quite nicely so I hope to be starting with regular bondo sometime early July. I still have to body work out the firewall but I may have to leave it until the bottom of the cab has been finished and painted as I will have to set the cab on the firewall to accomplish that.

I will also have to order my Altman Latches at some point as well. I plan to rebuild my door hinges as well at the same time even though they seem tight. Might as well do it now. If anyone has any good info such as where to buy a good quality rebuild kit and a how to link, that would be much appreciated.

The stuff that I am using is not bad. It's definitely harder to sand than just regular filler but from what I remember the stuff I used to use when I worked in the body shop sanded horrible. I think the stuff I have now is called Pro short strand reinforced body filler.

Re: My 1970 GMC “Project Splice”

More filler in the passenger door jamb tonight. Not alot of progress as it is quite hot out and it is hard to stay motivated when it's this uncomfortable to work. We are under heat warnings all week. Today was about 32° C and its only supposed to get hotter as the week goes on. By Thursday, we are supposed to be hitting 38° C. Good thing I'm headed to the lake Thursday morning.

Re: My 1970 GMC “Project Splice”

Looking great sir!
I hear you on the heat thing! 111F here yesterday and hotter today. I have a mini-split in the shop and it was not happy at the heat.
I am in about the same place with my "66 cab yours looks better than mine though.

Re: My 1970 GMC “Project Splice”

Haven't had a chance to work on my truck for a bit but I did swing by and check out my brother's truck on the way home from work today. It's coming along pretty nice! Can't wait till mine looks like this.

Re: My 1970 GMC “Project Splice”

More filler progress tonight. Passenger door jamb is nearly finished, at least for the Mar glass stage. I found out that the passenger side of the cab may have been involved in an accident of some sort at some point. It would have been something very minor but as I was doing the Ole body work rub down, I felt a few waves and the rounded portion felt slightly flattened. So I got a coat of glass on that as well. I'm looking forward to being done with the glass. I hope that the lightweight filler will go on smoother as I remember it being much easier to apply. We will see.... any way, here come some more boring pictures.

Re: My 1970 GMC “Project Splice”

All that hard work will definitely pay off! I was in the same boat and you just have to take it one day at a time. Have you looked into using feather fill as your filler? It was a lot easier to spray the filler than it was to spread the filler. Keep the updates coming.

Re: My 1970 GMC “Project Splice”

I have never used featherfill before. I had thought about it at one point but I already bought a gallon of bondo. I'd it turns out rough, maybe I'll use feather fill for the final coat. Thanks for following along with the build, I will definitely keep the pictures coming but they are pretty boring lol

Re: My 1970 GMC “Project Splice”

No progress to speak of on the truck. Hopfully soon. Things were piling up in the shop again and it was time for a major cleanup. I scored some more lighting from work so I've been working on that. One thing led to another and next thing you know, I'm painting my severely yellowed out pegboard to nice bright white. That along with the upgraded work bench light and things are very bright now. I also hung a new light on the other side of my shop and fixed/added more lighting along the front by my welding table. At this point, lighting upgrades are complete as I will not have room for any more fixtures.

Re: My 1970 GMC “Project Splice”

What a big difference a nice and clean, bright workspace does. Makes a guy wanna go out and get to work again!

I really like your shelves way up high all around the shop. Looks like it would free up more floor space... a good spot to put things that you don't use that often.

It sure does make a difference with bright lights, especially during bodywork. The shelves are awesome! I needed to keep as much of my trucks parts up out of my limited work area. I'm getting very close to having it clean. I have a certain standard I need to uphold on account of the wife parking in the one side. Should be back at it again soon

Re: My 1970 GMC “Project Splice”

Work continues on the cab, more body filler more dust. I needed I small block for some sanding in the door jambs so I found a machined aluminum block I had lying around the shop and used it. It works awesome for what I need.
