1981_c10 Step-Side

Hi Y'all, I am new to this forum and decided after reading numerous build threads the past few weeks that I should probaby start one myself. I currently have 3 project trucks: 1981 C10 Short Stepside (Bought when I was 14), 1970 C10 Long Bed (Bought from my grandpa-was my great grandpa's truck), and the most recent purchase: a 1962 Chevy C10 Short Step-Side (I bought for my dad-what he had in high school).

Anyway, I bought the '81 when i was 14 with 92K original miles (1 owner truck). I kick myself for never taking photos in high school of my build progress, but it started out silver with maroon body stripes and only one quarter size rust hole in the passenger side floor.

Since then, I have repaired the hole in the floor, installed 90% new interior (need a new dash and updated steering wheel), changed the wood bed to steel dimond plate, put 15X10 American Racing Wheels, billet grill, cowl hood, new windshield, new sliding back window, exhaust, back bumber, painted flat black, and engine tune ups and maintence.

The truck sat for 4 years while I went off to College/Work in California. I have been back in Texas that past year and now wanting to get more serious about getting the truck finished.

Hoping the photos work....
