Re: 69 K10 From the Field

Here are a few follow up pictures from the rust repair. This is after I ground down with flap disc on angle grinder, re-welded any small holes missed while welding. Flap disc touch up again then smoothed out with D.A. sander. I will next drill out hole locations from transfered sharpie marks and body work area.

Also decided to put together a cab lift with some leftover materials I had in the garage. Jacked it up and moved the cab to the back of the frame so I could get access to prep the frame, transmission and transfer case for paint. Used the air needle scaler I bought from H.F. to do the dirty work. It gets the big stuff off then I will go to the oven cleaner and power washer to get it closer so I can prep and paint.

Re: 69 K10 From the Field

Working on cab rust repair this weekend on the passenger side cowl. This area had rust on the inside of the kick panel, outside of cowl and the bottom pan of the cowl was like Swiss cheese. Worked the outside of cowl first, two rounds of welding and grinding. Then moved to the bottom of the cowl pan. Cutting back until I got to good metal that was solid again. Made a template out of card stock then cut it out and started to make all the needed bends to make it fit properly. Moved on to treating the inside with brush on Rust Reformer while I had the bottom out. Then 2 coats of Rusty Metal Primer brush on version.

While primer was drying I had two areas on the back of the cab that were small dents from the top of the bed hitting the cab. The one on the passenger side had a small amount of filler so I removed it, about a 2" square area. After I removed the filler I noticed 3 small hole where they used a slide dent puller. So I had bought a new tool a couple of months ago and this would be the time to try it out. Pulled out the stud welder and put a stud in the middle of the dent and used the new StudLever to pull the dent forward. I used it on both sides and I really like the control you have with it verses the slide hammer. Once I was done with that I used the DA to feather back the paint in the area for filler to finish it off. I noticed in the layers of paint these two areas were spot repaired. I could tell because of the layer of gray primer showing through, as I went further out all primed areas were the traditional red oxide.

After welding up the bottom of the cowl pan I will move onto the bottom of the doors I need to address. I will work on the doors while waiting waiting for filler or primers to cure on the cab.

Re: 69 K10 From the Field

Spent the morning cleaning up the garage to get the room needed to get moving on this build. Pushed the bed out into the driveway on the bed cart to tear it down and get it stored away in the side yard for later. This is the third bed I have completely tore down. The first one took about 6 hours. Second one took about 3 to 4 hours where I tried to break off the bolts using my impact driver, then drilling out the ones that would spin from the top. This time I went around and tried to break all off with impact driver and the ones that were spinning I tried a different method that worked really well and fast. I used a small chisel and screw driver driven under both sides of the bolt head to put pressure on it. This time I was able to complete the tear down in about 2 hours, that included moving items to side yard and cleaning up the driveway and tools.

Here is a picture of the method i used on the bolt heads that were spinning. After I just used a hammer and dolly to put the metal back and flatten it out.

Re: 69 K10 From the Field

Looks like a nice job on the repairs. I've got the same StudLever and it does a great job as long as you use enough studs that you aren't trying to pull too hard on any given stud (slips off the stud). Really good control though.

Re: 69 K10 From the Field

The first couple I used the smaller diameter studs and they were slipping a bit. Then I moved to the larger ones that I had in the kit and no slippage so far. At some point I would like to buy the tab-it kit and try doing a few with the glue on pads from a PDR kit.

Re: 69 K10 From the Field

After getting the garage cleaned up and organized on Wednesday I was going to take advantage of the extra space to get the motor off of the dolly and onto the motor stand to finish cleaning and getting ready for the proper color. The story on the motor is when I bought the two truck deal he also had the motor his dad had rebuilt before he passed away. I asked why is it green and he explained that his dad completed the rebuild and did not want to drive to town which is about twenty miles to get the right color of paint. He had some John Deere Green and thought it was good enough for the C60 it was going to go back into.

Anyways I removed the manifold, distributor, fuel pump and alternator so I could proceed to clean it up with a orange foaming degreaser I use and then scuff it up with a few Scotch brite pads to get some bite on the paint. I will wipe down with wzx and grease remover and prime first then spray Chevy Orange with ceramic motor paint.

I was looking at the script valve cover and noticed it had a few dings and dents so I began working the metal to get it best I could. The one in the picture was probably the worst. I used a hammer, dolly, a few different shaped hardwood sticks, a carriage bolt that had a top on it that had the same curvature and the last item I used was a large turnbuckle bolt. By using a few different items I was able to get it looking real good. I hit it a few times with the DA to see where the lows and high were and worked from there.

So know I will be working the cab and the motor together. I like to have at least two items going on at the same time so if I get tired or need a change of pace I flip over to the other item. Sometimes it works out real good waiting on things to cure or dry while I can move over to the other item and keep going forward.
