Re: Red Truck 2.0

Welcome to the site Yrik! Do you have more pics of the blue 86? I have a blue 1987 GMC with pretty much the same color scheme (except yours has the painted cab roof). Trying to decide on how to paint my truck. Thanks

GMC85HighSierra,
These are the only others I have of the truck. Not a factory two tone truck. Someone did this along the way and it is not quite factory correct.

Re: Red Truck 2.0

Yrik, these pictures help me out quite a bit. Here's a pic of my beast. When I got mine, it wasn't even running. Now it runs great (except for the smoke; valve seals need to be replaced). Has 87k original on it. Thanks

Re: Red Truck 2.0

Time for another update:

Since last time I bought another 1986 GMC long bed. It has been torn apart and inside since 1999 it came with a ton of extra parts mostly from 2 parted out suburbans. I have already sold enough parts that the truck is free.
I also got a short bed frame and cab with title.
So now the plan is take the doors and fenders off of the light blue truck, for the red truck truck. Then put all the dark blue parts on the light blue truck and sell it.
The short bed frame is for red truck 1. So are the factory rust free doors and fenders off of the light blue truck.
Now there isn't enough time in the day to get it all done.

Pic 1 they day i brought the dark blue truck home
pic 2 the pile of parts that came with it minus the large body parts in the bed of the truck
pic 3 the "light Blue" now dark blue in progress
pic 4 Short bed cab and frame
pic 5 Dark blue truck with left over parts. still have to pull the bed for the other truck

Re: Red Truck 2.0

Yep. Looks like my moms basement for the past two years since I started on my truck.

Re: Red Truck 2.0

It makes me itchy that my shop is such a mess. I just ran out of room. Thatís why Iím selling all the unneeded parts.
This what my garage is supposed to be.

Re: Red Truck 2.0

I'm pretty sure you purchased the beauty rings from me last year at the Monroe swap meet. Truck looks nice. Stop by and see me in Monroe this year if you're there to say hi. I'll be in the same spot.

Re: Red Truck 2.0

The grille looks good, are you planning on using that on your Red Truck?

Yeah the grill is going on the original red truck when I get back to that project. The core support and fenders are factory and rust free and being used on it also!
