Someone already welded in a frame reinforcement up there at some point in its life so good to go there. Even if I needed to put one in...
No updates, I started wire wheeling the frame and testing out some paint on it. Found some exhaust hangers and misc shit that was welded on...
Looks good man, I thought I was a genius when I discovered using a jack to push a drill up! Haha.
Hope you leave the paint as is, looks killer.
I wish mine worked like that! Mine is more like spend 12 hours on the k10, then the next weekend spend the entire weekend running around...
I really should check what gears I have. I'll have be redoing the diff cover gaskets so I guess I'll check then lol.
Thanks, it's actually a short box truck. Yeah I haven't seen very much 6.2L diesel stuff, even less in person.
The electrical stuff sounds...
And that's where I am right now. I work on it basically on weekends only. So progress is kinda slow going, but I'm getting close to the reassemble...
Really like these mudflaps though.
Got my harness done as well, opted to use the stock fuse box and mounting, going to use...

So this project started as a c10 long bed that I planned on lowering and driving. It snowballed, hard.
Originally the plan was to have a "shop...

No real updates, been using my weekends to run around collecting parts.
Bought this suburban
And here's what I bought the suburban for....
Stock Floor Body Drop
Sign me up. Sounds like an organization for me!
You can absolutely buy it from me. :Big Laugh:
Well no updates, I'm trying to keep myself from getting burnt out and have reached a point where I'm trying to nut/bolt resto this and I can't do...
It'll probably push it in a little, but I don't know if it'll be enough.
That's it. The hump in the floor is different. Everything else is the same.
Nope, don't think it'd be that hard to rig that up though.
Got hit with a nasty cold so I've been down for a couple days. Ruined my weekend, but did manage to knock out another bench.
Then I pulled the cab off and here's where I am today.
I basically only work on this on Saturdays and a few hours on Sundays, so...
