Re: 72 K30 Build

Looks like a lot of effort going into keeping the wire and ducts running in an organized fashion under the dash. Not easy to do - looks real nice. Will you be running the engine bay wiring in conduit? I got too much assembled before starting that so now some of mine running center of firewall area will be really tough on this old back to get into conduit.

Re: 72 K30 Build

Thanks Rick, it is just factory wire/duct routing and making our modified wiring look mostly stock, but thank you. Some areas will get conduit (mainly rubber ps/hb & tc lines) but mostly taped harnesses trying to keep the old 67-72 look, really glad to be making some progress.

Flatbed update; Ugh oh, heard back from our vendor yesterday, he thinks weíre 2 weeks out and yup, Iím way behind!

Ended up pulling the booster 3 times before I was satisfied Iíd gotten the nut tight enough! Hereís a trick weíve used several times, the olí stick fender maneuver! Great for supporting the core support while leaving lots of room to finish assembly work under the hood and save your fenders from damage.

Re: 72 K30 Build

Thanks Ryan!


Back to the evaporator box, decided to take a short cut (?) and not remove the factory rivets. Flapper door works great and all the metal is in really good shape, the only area with surface rust showing can be accessed with a wire wheel. After a little disassembly, wire wheel, some stripper to get old overspray off the fiberglass, a bath too clean out the inside and neutralize the stripper. 2nd quick round of the wire wheel and some paint for this side.

Re: 72 K30 Build

SEM landau black vinyl dye works great on that old plastic for the blower box and radiator shroud. (though maybe that is the color it is supposed to be.)

Re: 72 K30 Build

Pretty sure it’s supposed to be the natural fiberglass/plastic gray color, at least for a factory look.


More paint and satin cleared everything, noticed this half is a bit lighter than the other half though.

Re: 72 K30 Build

Blue gets jealous sometimes when the new truck gets all the luv! Tried to strand me twice the other day with a fuel starvation problem.

The sock and possibly 45 years of crap (?) in the bottom of the tank has to be my problem. Already did a new fuel pump when we bought it, carb rebuild and inline filters a year or so later. Yep, sock was the problem if not for the tear it probably couldnít have moved fuel at all. New OER sending unit arrived and all was good an hour or so later.

Re: 72 K30 Build

Wow, it definitely does have some 2-tone going on, but over all Iím happy with how itís turning out. Not quite as noticeable installed and pretty sure once we start putting miles on it even less so. Last pic is with my cell and no flash.

Re: 72 K30 Build

I bet not many notice it after it's together and you use it a bit. It looks nice. I wish I would have used better clear on mine when I did it. You can't tell I did it now. Haha

Re: 72 K30 Build

Thanks Ryan!


Oops, was there a line there? The new power steering reservoir hose was so tight to the pump (how tight was it?), had to use the heat gun a little and my soft man hand blistered instantly! Double oops!

Re: 72 K30 Build

If there weren't a few oops along the way, it wouldn't be a real build! At least I know its not just me making them

Re: 72 K30 Build

Really need to get the steering and brakes functional as soon as possible, havenít heard anymore from the flatbed vendor but it could be any time (weíve only gotten ďin 2 weeksĒ once so far so who knows)!

Plumbing is done (except for the AC refrigerant lines) including the heater core, cluster is installed (1st time) and column mounted. No issues with the heater core, steering/hydroboost, was concerned about the old power steering pump but it seems to be doing great. Started gravity bleeding the brakes and chasing any leaks found.

Re: 72 K30 Build

Cluster take 2, bonehead mistakes:
#1; Plugged the aftermarket cluster in backwards and yes you really can do that, the tin is extra thin it was easy! I do know better!
#2; Hooked up the vacuum gauge before making sure the cluster worked properly. Had a heck of a time getting the vac hose back off the barbed adaptor for that gauge. 2nd time was the charm all the gauges are working. All the vacuum operated stuff is working correctly as well. Ha, thinking Iíll wait a bit this time before hooking the vac gauge back up!

Shot some paint on the speaker bracket thatís getting our cargo/tool box light switch. Really glad we made up some paint in rattle cans it has been coming in handy...
