Re: 69, no wait, 71 C10 Project

Maybe I missed it but what headers are you going with? I have the Gibson long tubes and they would likely interfere with your coil relocation setup. Just making sure you have thought that potential interference through. I just got done with a reroute of my ECM harness for better clearance around the headers today so made me think of that when I saw your pics. Mine is a '68 C10.

I'm going with stock manifolds on the LS3. Just had them ceramic coated.

Thanks. I think it came out great. I can't wait for the matching door panels, even though I am not anywhere near ready to install an interior.

Really nice truck. I see you picked up the truck near Battle Creek. I live just outside Battle Creek myself. Anyway... could you share the specs on those rims and tires? Looking for ideas for my 68 C10 and those would look great I think!

Thanks. I promised the previous owner, and his kids, a ride once it is done. So, i will be back out to BC next spring likely.

Wheels are US Mag Ramblers. Fronts are 18x8 on Nitto 255/45/18 and rears are 18x9.5 on Nitto 295/45/18. Can't recall the back spacing, but i am trying to track that down.
Just found backspace numbers. Front is 4.50 and rear is 5.25.

Re: 69, no wait, 71 C10 Project

Something painted this way comes. Well, just left the paint shop to check out the truck. It came out sweet. The photos just don't do it justice. Now, time to get off my arse even more to get it ready for the cab, which I hope to retrieve in the next couple of weeks.

Paint looks excellent, the two-tone is a solid choice.

Thanks. Trying to at least keep something original.

Re: 69, no wait, 71 C10 Project

Got the coil wire looms set up on one side. Came out ok. Cutting wires and completing the other side next. Also had a chance to connect the power steering high pressure and return lines.

Looks good and nice progress. Those stock manifolds provide lots of clearance (even for folks running a rack and pinion). If my long tubes end up causing problems I might have to switch to stock manifolds like yours. Thanks for posting.

Thanks. While I was leaning toward headers, I convinced myself to stick with the manifolds because I really did not need slightly more HP for the type of driving I intended for this truck.

Coil wires and looms are all installed. Slow progress, but progress.

Re: 69, no wait, 71 C10 Project

Body shop bound. Heading there to have the cab mounted tomorrow morning. I will then get my turn to wire it, plumb the rest of the brakes, connect the AC and cooling and get everything else done before I take it back for the bed and the front clip.
