The 6" lifted 2WD 69 C-10, "Rustoleum Special"

I've had this truck since 2007, it belonged to my best friend who was killed in a motorcycle crash, when his folks went to sell it I offered to buy it and instead they gave it to me to keep his memory alive. We had originally been working on it since 2000, it was his first truck, and up until '07 we had already installed power steering, single pane windows, headers, flowmaster mufflers, and power brakes. Shortly after I got it I purchased the new grill, bumpers, rims and tires. Since then it has just kinda been sitting. Now I've got the motivation again and am hoping to get this thing finished by the end of June.

Here it is as of 2007, has about 3 coats of Rustoleum primer at this point

Nasty old interior with a burnt out seat

The Flowmasters

Re: The 69 C-10 "Rustoleum Special"

In 2009, my brother and I finished up the interior. It looks better now (2012) as it has new rubber on the pedals and the ac garbage is gone. We trashed the old seat and installed a $80 "new" set out of a wrecked 08 Chevy Silverado. I added some braces under the seat bolts so the seats wont eject through the window in a crash, New instrument cluster bezel, chrome, emblems, Kenwood radio mounted under the wheel. Installed a vintage looking tac. that actually works very well. Also serviced the tranny which is a NewProcess A833, "four on the floor"... The orange is the original color my buddy and I painted when we were 16, so it's gonna stay.

Re: The 69 C-10 "Rustoleum Special"

Skip forward to last month. I gutted all the AC and heating. And tossed out the old quadrajet manifold. If you want any of this stuff come get it!

Made my own heater/AC delete and painted the engine bay up a nice satin black color. I also installed a new Edelbrock EPS manifold, air cleaner, and cast valve covers. I felt it would compliment the headers, cam, and Edelbrock 4 barrel carb that were already on this old 350. Still a bit dirty but better...

Talking Re: The 69 C-10 "Rustoleum Special"

As of the last few weeks, I took of the bumpers, grill, trim, etc. to start some body work. I saw the $50 paint job thing and am gonna give it a shot, I felt I should stick with Rustoleum since there is already so much on here!

Well here are the trim holes...

I used some fiberglass to patch the holes from behind

After the glass dried

Then sand, sand, sand, all the nicks and ding too... After sanding I used some body filler on the holes. Let it dry.... Then more sanding!


Then more Rustoleum primer, and I have a smoothish looking door!



The driver side door is really hammered, and still wavy, it was pretty much made up of Bondo from the beginning.
Stay tuned for more updates!

Re: The 69 C-10 "Rustoleum Special"

Re: The 69 C-10 "Rustoleum Special"

New upper and lower control arms for a 73-87, BB springs (+1"), 4" lift spindles. The sway bar in the pic didn't work, it hit the tie rod at half lock. This was replaced with a CPP sway bar using c1500 6.25" end links that sit above the tie rods.

Re: The 69 C-10 "Rustoleum Special"

Rear is fully assembled. Hopefully I got the pinion depth right, otherwise I'm gonna have to pay a shop to do it. Local guy wants $1200 :/

Here it is up on the new 35's

Re: The 69 C-10 "Rustoleum Special"

Here's my enlarged and reinforced driveshaft loop. It now fits a 5" Dana alloy shaft outta a 2010 Dodge ram. It'll still need to be shortened roughly 6".
