Just a before and after

I picked up this lwb c10 about a year and a half ago with a dead inline 6. Now it has a 350 vortec heads, swb, just got it back from paint a couple days ago. Nevermind the missing tail light I'm swapping in some LED's. I'm loving the way this truck has turned out.

Nice transformation! You made quick work of that one. How'd you do the shortbed conversion? New bed and frame or did you shorten them?

That's a great deal! Did he do the jambs and engine bay too? What kind of time frame was it? It might be worth it for me to take a truck up there to him.

No he did not do the jambs, I just couldn't justify spending more $$ to have them done.

Nothing real special about the interior, it still needs carpet and headliner but it's pretty clean. Couple more pictures just because i like it so much
