Picked up a 76 SFBD K5 on billets

Well not yet but hopefully this week end. My buddy decided to part with his 76 he's been building for the last 10 years or so. He made me an awesome deal I couldnt refuse. Its a 76 K5 SFBD on 22" Bonspeed Clutchs. 22x8.5s in the front and the rear end has been narrowed with deep offset 22x10s in the rear. Markers, trim, drip rails door handles, locks, mirrors, and gas door has been shaved. He was in the process of shaving the firewall and moving the brake booster inside. The truck needs a little TLC in a few areas but my biggest concern will be getting her on the road. All the other issues i will "attempt" to adress as smaller projects once shes up and running. I have a big enough project in my SFBD dually for this one to snow ball on me too. We'll see how it goes. I will try and keep you guys updated once I take possesion of her. Heres a few pics I have of her from 2008 when she was last together.

I am beyond excited to get her home.

I'm in Wichita Falls and am building a Blazer too. I'd kinda like to check out your K5.
