That's awesome, if you need any other pictures let me know, I have them on the table and I have them installed a few trucks at my house.

Re: 69 K10 From the Field

I have also taken apart 3 beds, not sure I have it down as well as you have. I use an air ratchet on the nuts. Of course they stop spinning after about 3-4 turns and are stuck. I spray everything down with penetrant first. I use several sets of vice grips on the top side after I have spun several as fay as they will go, trying to position the vice grips to where they are loaded, against the bed wall. If you don't they will slap the wall hard and come loose easier...
I think the best way, may be to cut off the exposed threads off the bolts at the nut, that way the nut can't get stuck. I wire brush the exposed threads. That didn't help as much as I wanted it to...

Wht condition id the small block 400 you obtained. Those can be nice running engines, not sure I'd want one in a 4WD pickup, the extra power might be a test for the drive line...

Re: 69 K10 From the Field

Well finally back on the project. Going to challenge myself to a 21 day challenge to get the cab and door metal repairs done, all of the body work and painted. I have all the materials to do the job and complete the task. Here in Idaho yesterday 3/25/2020 the governor ordered a 21 day "Stay at Home" order to fight the Covid-19 virus. So instead of letting it get the best of me I will make it a challenge. Challenge to get the project moving forward and a challenge to learn something new in this hobby that I have not tried yet. Possibly do a full door skin, do a LS motor install, try painting a shop logo on spare door. Not sure yet but I will know in a day or so on the new item to try.

Times are rough right now and this is the best way for me to cope with what is going on and help flatten the curve at the same time. Hopefully when this is all over I can look back and see something positive.

Re: 69 K10 From the Field

So the work today will be getting the driver side rocker tacked in and the driver side kick panel lower section new metal cut out and tacked in also. I spent yesterday afternoon cleaning up the shop and putting away a few tools from the kitchen remodel so I could wheel out the cab to get going again. Then I cut out the lower section of the kick panel with a air reciprocating saw and small die grinder that has a metal cutting bit. Made a few templates from card stock to cut out the new metal with. Then treated the cut out area with Rust-oleum rust dissolver spray gel which is Phosphoric acid in gel form.

The gel form of the Phosphoric acid works well converting the iron oxide "rust" to iron phosphate. I wait until it all dries good then mechanically remove with a the solution with powered wire wheel, grinding pad, wire brush etc. If you try to remove the gel before it dries with water it leaves a white powdery film that does not paint well. Anyways I have had good luck with this and for areas like this I use a little acid brush to move the gel around into the cracks and places that are hard to get in to.

Re: 69 K10 From the Field

While I was letting the rust remover dry I decided to pull out the doors and get started on them while I am working on the cab. When filler or primer is drying I will work on getting both doors ready for the cab. The door in the pictures is the passenger side door, you can see the metal damage under the trim locations. I will be grinding down the areas to get to good metal and body work those areas. There are two areas that will need to be cut out that are rust through areas at the bottom corner of the door and front bottom corner of door interior. The trim holes will be welded shut and worked to get things right. After sanding down with a DA I marked areas that were high with a "H" using a black marker and outline where to cut out the rust and fix.

Re: 69 K10 From the Field

Here are a few pictures of the passenger door rust repair and welding up 12 trim holes and 3 mirror holes. Rust repair was for exterior bottom corner and bottom interior corner of the door. Both typical places where they rust out from poor drainage. Cut out the rust and clean all that I can get to and treat the metal inside to stop future rusting.
