Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

I was able to get the bed floor raised up 10". Looks good and wasn't as hard as I thought it would be to get done. My Porterbuilt hood hinges showed up and I was able to get them mostly installed. I want a drop member up front so bad but it will have to wait for the phase 2 build. Funds are a little tight.

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

So today I was able to get the hinges painted and installed along with the hood. Looks good! I was surprised Porterbuilt doesn't supply directions for the installation. Thankfully there was a great article on this site giving a step by step. If you get these hinges do not go at the install alone. There are some crucial steps that you don't want to miss. I will say the hinges work and look great. They are worth the money. I also received my watts link for the rear in the mail. I forgot to take a photo of that.

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

Did a whole lot of welding yesterday and today. I will drop the ass end out tomorrow and grind smooth all my ugly welds in preparation for paint. Still need to make some mounts for the air tanks and put in the rear frame bed mounts. I love progress!

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

Got the rear frame completely welded and painted today. Lots of work grinding and prepping but it was worth the effort. I want to run my airlines with this copper tubing. What do you guys think?

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

Bodydropped and Bennett thanks for the kind words. This is my first build and I think it is going well so far. It's amazing how much you learn as you go. A lot of times the hard way! lol

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

Very nice progress on the suspension. I'm not sure about the copper lines? I'm thinking it would work fine as long as you have cushioned mounts to keep it from rubbing. I don't think I've seen anyone running it on here.

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

Personally I would run DOT air line.
People HAVE run copper,... but it "work-hardens" with vibration.
Use quality fittings and air line with Loctite 545 on the pipe threads for a leak free installation.

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

Thanks for the input. I have also seen people run alloy lines. Would there be any difference between the two? I just like the clean look and tight area of the hard lines. It is going to be a driver truck so if dot is better in the long run then that is what I will go with.

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

Been busting ass on the project lately. Rear end seals and drum brakes replaced. Everything painted and installed in the rear. I will install the air tanks, valves, bags, and shocks tomorrow. Hope to be able to run the air lines too.

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

I have all my air lines ran now and have moved to the wiring of the valves. Tanks and water traps are in. Tomorrow I want to test the airbag system and see if it works well as well as check for leaks.

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

I was able to run all my fuel lines from the tank to the carb. I custom bent tube from the carb down to the pump and moved the filter to below the pump. I also mounted the brake master cylinder and started on bending in the brake lines. All air bag lines are done and the switches wired to the switch box. Truck is coming along pretty smooth. I hope to be driving it in a month or less.

Re: Project "Blackbeard" 69 C-10

Got the front end on and did a couple small things like install the overflow and power steering canisters. I am waiting on a box from Jegs that contains my brake lines. Also my wiring harness is on its way.
