Re: 71 C10 6.0 LS ground up build

I had to come check your build out, it is surprising how similar our builds are. Looking good.

Body is still at paint but have been able to collect a few more parts and started restoring the vent windows. Also assembled front bumper and bought led lights for side markers park lights and taillights.

Had to check out your build after I seen you had parts for sale and from visalia. Not to many on here from town. Be nice to see truck around town once you get it going.

Re: 71 C10 6.0 LS ground up build

Got a new cpp series 500 gear box so I installed it this evening. Used power steering hoses from a 1977 model year and bought a adapter fitting from dirty dingo to adapt 3/8 flare to oring style pump on Ls motor.

Re: 71 C10 6.0 LS ground up build

Finished up vent windows replaced all weatherstripping, painted frames, and replaced chrome pieces. I also took buddy buckets apart and had my neighbor weld the seat frames. Painted frames in preparation for upholstery.

Re: 71 C10 6.0 LS ground up build

Everything is coming out very nice.

How hard was it to do the vent windows? I need to do mine too.

Vent windows were a chore. After all that work I decided to buy chrome vent windows instead haha.

A little sneak peak of the red I chose. It's viper red with red and white diamond pearl added. The white will be standard gm white. Color really pops in the sun!

I figured they were a pain.

Cab looks great. Do you know was the original paint just scuffed, body worked, then primered? Ive been thinking of doing something along those lines with mine.

Re: 71 C10 6.0 LS ground up build

Yes body was scuffed then primed. There were no rust issues with cab only dents and filling gas filler.
