Project Bertha

I've had this truck for five years, and now is when I do this build thread. I guess better late than never. It's a 93 with a 6.5 turbo diesel. I traded my 72 C10 for this. Reason was I wanted something with more room. In five years I've done some repairing/replacing parts. Window regulator, universal joints, harmonic balancer, dash, front end ball joints, pitman, idler, jeep steering shaft mod, etc.

When I got it, it was static drop 5/7. It's now bagged and it's gone from silver to plasti dip to satin black paint. Soon to be painted again.

When I bought her home...



New wheels...Brentz 19" direct bolt on.



Plasti dip...





More pics to come later.
