Re: UXDesigner's 1967 C10 - The Keeper

Success! I had failed several times over the past few weeks to get the dreaded rear broken exhaust manifold bolt. I read here that the trick was to crank up the volts on the welder and I finally managed to get some metal to stick. The nut I welded on fell off after the first turn but there was just enough metal to use the vise grips and it finally came out.

Re: UXDesigner's 1967 C10 - The Keeper

Engine back in for hopefully the final time. Installed the headers with gaskets, O2 sensors, new water pump and cleaned up the front of the engine in the process. Also worked on wiring the battery, the truck had a dual rear battery setup when I purchased it so it works out perfect for the new engine as I plan on running the stock air cleaner setup. Of course I had to start it up and hear the rumble to keep up the motivation.

Re: UXDesigner's 1967 C10 - The Keeper

Radiator installed, all lines tested for leaks with success. I originally thought about using the factory intake / box but it didn't look as clean as I had imagine and the fabrication to make it sit properly would be significant. I scrapped the idea and decided to go with an aftermarket SPECTRE 9900 Cold Air Intake System for ease of installation and I think the chrome gives the engine compartment a nice touch.





Also started drilling all the holes for the trim, took a lot longer than I thought but the pieces were great quality and fitment only needed a few tweaks.




Managed to get the front grill in epoxy and 2k to test gun settings and pressure as I prepare to paint in the next few weeks.

Re: UXDesigner's 1967 C10 - The Keeper

Repaired lower door speaker holes. I admire you folks that weld entire bedsides, its a lot of work. I'm sure my novice welding skills have something to do with the excessive grinding but at least another task is behind me.

Also got the front fenders and hood in epoxy, I'm happy with the body work so far but still more work to do.

Re: UXDesigner's 1967 C10 - The Keeper

I needed a new glove box door and came across one in excellent condition with a unique SPI sticker and options. Posting in case others are interested in unique truck options.



I originally planned on using a floor shifter but after installation I just didn't like the look and feel of a truck with a floor shifter. Ended up getting a new column shifter which resulted in new steering u-joint work but overall I'm really happy with the end product.




I went for a test drive in the neighborhood to test steering and overall functionality and I ran into an issue with losing complete power and overall responsiveness to my gas pedal when mildly punching it. After checking the TAC, I realized I had a 2006 TAC and gas pedal on the 2003 engine which was causing issues. I had a spare TAC and pedal from a 2003 with the correct TAC numbers and just like that no issues. I even tried the 2006 pedal with the 2003 TAC because it fits better and again no codes or issues.

Re: UXDesigner's 1967 C10 - The Keeper

Got the cab in epoxy, continuing to make progress





Paint is in, color really looks good in the sun


Started work on the bed, filling in the bed stake holes. Feeling more confident with the welder and decided to try and lay a few beads down.

Re: UXDesigner's 1967 C10 - The Keeper

Masked off the pearl white areas of the two-tone paint scheme. A lot of work! I underestimated the amount of time and patience it would take to get the lines correct and sealed. The pearl white was a tri-coat and I was intimidated to spray at first but it ended up not being difficult at all.

Pearl will be a nice combo with that red.

Re: UXDesigner's 1967 C10 - The Keeper

I only had a 24 hour window to re-tape and spray the pearl red which looking back now I could have eliminated taping the pearl white because coverage for the red on the white was excellent. I had read that most will spray white first, tape and spray the primary color over but I wasn't ready to risk spraying a red pearl on a white pearl. Lesson learned for next time!

Re: UXDesigner's 1967 C10 - The Keeper

3 coats of clear (1.25 gallons) later, we have the finished product! I managed to only get a couple of minor clear sags in areas that will be covered with either the front bumper or trim so I'm really happy with the results!

Re: UXDesigner's 1967 C10 - The Keeper

Wow great looking build love the colors. Mar-k makes awesome trim worked well on my build as well. You will love the Ls motor also. If you want to add cruise control to it it's very easy. I did the cruise option with my 03 ls 6.0 swap.

Re: UXDesigner's 1967 C10 - The Keeper

I noticed the SPI wax and grease cleaner. I've used their products on 2 car builds and will use them on the truck that I am building. Great guys, great products.
Your truck is looking good!

Re: UXDesigner's 1967 C10 - The Keeper

I scrapped the idea and decided to go with an aftermarket Spectre performance intake kit for ease of installation and I think the chrome gives the engine compartment a nice touch.


Could you share what part number you got for the intake kit? I ended up using the stock intake tube but put a spectra filter on the end. I dont think it looks horrible but yours def looks better. any hood clearance issues?

SPECTRE 9900 Cold Air Intake System

No hood clearance issues, I also used the same kit on my previous build.
