1986 C10 Project "Macon County"

Well after several rounds of back and forth, I finalized a deal on my next project. A super nice 86 Silverado from a small farming community just north of me. I'm finishing up a game plan and ordering parts this week. More details to come as I get started.

Re: 1986 C10 Project "Macon County"

Time for a quick update on Macon county. I decided on my normal 4.5/6 drop with a mixture of McGaughys and Western Chassis components. 2 1/2 drop spindles with cut springs, rear flip kit with 1" shackles and KYB shocks all around complete the package. The tear down was interesting to say the least, I found a main leaf broke on the rear drivers side. In over 20+ trucks that was a first and caused a week delay in getting repaired. During the delay I finished up the front including brakes, upper ball joints, and fender well detail. Once the rear leafs were ready the back was completed and received the same detailing. I'll apologize in advance on the lack of detailed pics, my 5 year old decided I suck at taking pictures and deleted about 20 of them. So with the stance on point and everything torqued to spec that stage is complete.

Clean, clean looking truck. Digging the wheels with the stance.

Re: 1986 C10 Project "Macon County"

I moved on to the interior next. The inside in a nice mix of original and new pieces. The seat and dash have been replaced but everything else was original and in perfect condition. So basically a deep cleaning, dying of a few parts, and a new 1 piece floor mat was all that was needed.

Re: 1986 C10 Project "Macon County"

After the interior was finished I moved to the A/C. As with most of my builds, I prefer to replace everything in the system. I started with an updated 134a condenser, new compressor, new hoses, heavy duty fan clutch, red Ford orifice tube, and new receiver dryer. The system sealed up tight and held 29in of vacuum overnight. With the proper charge of Freon my manifold gauge readings were great and I'm getting 42-44 degrees at idle and 40 running down the road measured at the center vent. That was followed with a quick detail on the engine bay to bring this stage to a close.

Re: 1986 C10 Project "Macon County"

So this basically brings Macon County to a close. I have an appointment next week to have it wet sanded and buffed. I'm pleased with how it turned out and It's one of the best driving trucks I've had. It's absolutely laser straight and has one of the best tailgate bands you can find. Not a speck of rust anywhere and the under carriage has been cleaned and painted in the past.

Re: 1986 C10 Project "Macon County"

Curious as to what 134a condenser you used? Why the red ford orifice tube?

Thanks aggie. The condenser is a parallel flow and 100% bolt in (link added). The Ford orifice tube has a little bigger opening than the original white GM tubes that were designed for R12.

Re: 1986 C10 Project "Macon County"

Macon county is all cleaned up, buffed, polished and ready for a run on Ebay. It will definitely make a great truck for someone to enjoy.
