Brothers, Classic Industries, LMC will be your friend. When you have some time, check them out, you will learn lots just by perusing there respective catalogs. I am not a body man, and I used to think it was impossible, but if I can do it, (you're mechanical) so can you. Especially cool that your girl is on board. Welcome from the Cascade foothills in WA St.
Have already begun dreaming on those sites! This weekend we begin disassembly. Want to get down to a rolling chassis and have it take in for sandblasting, cleaning, and overall repair. Can't have a nice truck without a solid base! I appreciate the encouragement!

Sick em' Skip....Champing at the bit to start myself, bunch of parts already shipped. Have you started a build thread? If not, take tons of pictures for your own documentation, and share a few with us. My cab is much worse then yours, but the rest of the truck is not to bad....except r/l front fender, cab...well the bed ain't bad!

Only a limited number of hours to work on this during the winter but I have managed to take the grill, headlights, inner wheel wells off. Bumpers will be off this weekend. Started on that last weekend and got frustrated with all of the bolts snapping so I stopped. I will just grind them off this weekend. The nice thing about a project like this, I am in no hurry and can do what I want, when I want. The Mrs. is in no hurry either so until she gets antsy, it's part by part.

$1200 is a good price for a running K10 these days. In my area of Tn, you would likely double or triple your money flipping it.

Looks like a good starting point. Welcome to the "club". I really dig that siphon bulb in the fuel line. These trucks are pretty simple. Should be relatively easy to un-******* the jerry-rigging.
