Re: 1984 K10-The Rock

For some reason Chevy always has a narrower track width in the rear! They say itís so the rear tires donít go in the same track as the front (for traction).

Well I donít like it on a street truck! So we added 1.25Ē billit spacers to each side.

Re: 1984 K10-The Rock

That stock horn was really bothering me, so we opted for an air trumpet horn. We decided to mount it behind the grill so there was nothing between it and the offending driver but space and opportunity!

So we didnít get to terribly much done today. We did finish cleaning the dvr side bracket and accessories. We struggled getting the AC clutch off the pass side. We will tackle that tomorrow.

Re: 1984 K10-The Rock

Some 6x9 boxes we made a template for. Brought the template to my friend with a plasma table to precision cut it for me. If this works as well as I expect, they will be for sale on my website.

Re: 1984 K10-The Rock

We got a whole lot done today, but not much picture worthy. Our roll bar had 3 light tabs welded to the front of the bar. I thought they showed be on the back and that there should be 4 of them. So Alex set out to make that happen

The only rust on this truck was in the tailgate! So we replaced it with a good used one

Re: 1984 K10-The Rock

The first two are after paint but before installation. The next two are the speaker installed in truck. These are attached using 3M automotive double sided tape. They are for sale on my website and fit 73-87 Chevrolet and GMC trucks.
