Re: Project: 1967 C10 Small Window

Sorry to see the aftermath but glad to see you are getting her back into shape, awesome progress so far

As far as the tool, I do not have a clue but I am sure it will make sense after you tell us

Re: Project: 1967 C10 Small Window

David, I just revisited your build thread to show a buddy at work your truck, and saw your situation.

Sorry to hear about the accident, but am glad you are OK.

Trucks can be rebuilt.

I like the the way you approach your build on the truck.

I think I told you before that your build was an inspiration for me to start my build on my 70 short step. I am not street legal yet, but getting close.

Here's a quick pic.

I'll be sure to check back to see your progress.

Nice! Glad my truck could be an inspiration. That thing is awesome and I see you're in Houston. Maybe we will cross paths someday. I'm considering a white roof/grille this time around but I'll likely keep it as is.

Well here you go. I tried to use an open end wrench with a cheater bar and it started to deform the plug...so I thought I would stand a better chance if the cap was completely boxed. I didn't have an 8 pointed socket in the right size. Drilled a hole and filed it into the exact shape... a lot of work for something I'll never use again but it worked perfectly.

I also removed the bushings and sleeves from the trailing arms and they are ready for powdercoat. That was a pain. Tomorrow I will remove the yoke and pinion from the housing and it should also be ready for powder. I should have the control arms back this week.

Re: Project: 1967 C10 Small Window

I used the blue-tipped axe on my TA bushings. Stinky/messy but easy!

Ha! I've never heard it called that. We have a 20 ton press that helped. I have original style rubber replacements with sleeves that I'll be using.

My first powdercoated parts! I took them to North Side Powdercoating in Conroe. They did an awesome job! Also dropped off my trailing arms and axle housing.

I also have some new shoes on order as of today. I have an idea and they may not end up being gray... we will see.

Thanks Travis at ProPerformance!

Thanks! 20"

As for the centers...I'll keep it a secret for now. Could look pretty good or pretty bad. Gray will look good regardless.

Wow I haven't posted in over a year...

I'm still plugging away at it and I'm on to body work now. I'll try to post pictures soon. I'm trying to make LST '18, but that's a long shot at this point... Life got busy.
