Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

So I have had this truck for about 6 months now. It was an Ebay purchase. The truck was what I call "Ghetto bagged" with some cool 22" steel wheels and a rebuilt original 350. Since I have had it, I have completely gone over and redone the airbag system, mini notched the frame, and put on some better suspension components. I have been buying and collecting parts for the build now. What i want in the end is a functional daily driver that lays frame. I will keep the patina. I want a truck I can drive and use for work that I don't have to worry about a ding or scratch here or there. The little things I have done now are temporary upgrades just so it was safe and drivable. Eventually the truck will be four linked with monster notch and a Porterbuilt drop member up front.

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

Over the last 2 days, I have removed the factory fuel tank and put on a new frame mounted one. I have also started replacing the cab corners. The seat will be off the upholsterers shop for a new cover.

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

Thanks to everyone watching. I did some work on the truck today. Pulled the front clip off and the radiator. I am getting the truck ready for the new aluminum radiator with electric fans and March serpentine kit. I am also relocating the battery to the rear frame rails. I am waiting on the parts for all that. Tomorrow I will work on the truck again. I will drop the exhaust, place new carrier bearing cross member, and place new shorty headers. Hope to get all that done. I need to start running all new airbag lines too.

Thanks and congrats on Truck of the Year. I actually had a question for you. ON your truck you moved the carrier bearing cross member forward an inch. What was the reason for that? I have the same crossmember installed today. I to will eventually put a parallel four link in with it.

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

I'm working on getting a automatic transmisson for the truck now. I will be dropping the old three on a tree out soon. I have decided to go with a th350 with a Lokar floor shifter. Tomorrow I will pick up my seat from the upholstry shop. I will post some pics. This truck will be put back together and drivable soon with some new goodies. Then its off to the DMV for registration and a phone call to Porterbuilt for the phase two build.

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

What did you do with the old seat cover? I'm trying to find one in black with the same pattern in the material.

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

Yep, I remember the truck from ebay. I realize the cover is a different color and in bad shape but I was wondering if I could some better detailed shots that I could take to an upholsterer to see if they can find a match. Or better yet, if you were going to trash it, I'd pay for shipping so I could show it to the shop in person.

This is a cool truck. I kinda dig the big steelies. Something you don't see everyday for sure. Looking forward to following along.

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

Today I went and picked up my freshly upholstered seat. After that I decided to pull out the old manual 3 speed, remove the old headers, and remove all the engine pulleys. I have a rebuilt th350 automatic trans coming on monday. Several boxes of goodies showed up today too. I only cracked into the March pulleys to take a look. Tomorrow I will put the pulleys on. Thanks to all of you guys out there watching.

Hey man the old seat cover was trashed, sorry. I did go with the same color. What do you think?

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

Is this crossmember specific to this manual transmission? I need to remove this for the automatic th350 and add a new aftermarket crossmember right? I do already have the CPP transmission crossmember on hand.
