I got the engine wire harness cleaned up and installed, got everything else engine related hooked up, and got it running again. Also started getting some trim installed.

Re: Freshening up the 80 k10

I've been plugging away at this old truck, slow but sure! I got the cab floor cleaned up, and gave it a heavy coat of mastic epoxy. I followed that up with some sound deadener, then some new carpet. I cleaned up, and re-dyed the interior plastic parts, and got the interior installed. I also got some mirrors installed, and rebuilt the vent windows. Over the last couple of days, I got the body work done on the hood, got it painted, and got it put on the truck this afternoon.

Re: Freshening up the 80 k10

I started getting the beat up, but rust free bed sides pounded into shape tonight. Lots of little dents, and dings to hammer out, and a bunch of screw, and bolt holes to weld up.

Nice work.
Looks like you have some experience with the repro sheetmetal rockers etc. Do you think theres any quality difference between the brands ?

I think its all about the same. None of it fits great without some work.

Re: Freshening up the 80 k10

Still slowly plugging away at this old truck! I have the first round of body work done on the bed, got the rally wheels cleaned up, and painted, and tonight mounted up some new 31x10.5r15 tires.

Re: Freshening up the 80 k10

Nice work! That green is awesome.

I recently put those BFG all terrains on my k10 except I went with the 33x10.50 r15. One of the few tires Iíve ever seen that you can get in that more narrow size in a 33.
