Re: 71 c10 restoration

Pretty torn between colors, heading to paint soon. The interior of the truck will be black carpet, bench seat, door panels, headliners. Need some opinions

Re: 71 c10 restoration

New tank came in from "Ricks tanks". Looks great and fit well. Sadly the fuel lines and connectors are on back order from summit. Should pair well with the holly snyper fuel rails.

Re: 71 c10 restoration

The stock injectors from the 6.0 would not work with the ls3 intake. "Unfortunately" I had to upgrade to 42lbs injectors and holly fuel rails.

Re: 71 c10 restoration

Good news! my headers came in from "Headmen Headers" they look great and fit well. Decided to go with the shorties to increase the bottom-end power compared to top-end power with long tubes. Cant wait to hear this baby purr

Re: 71 c10 restoration

In other news, Dropped the cab off at a local hot rod shop (Dooley and sons) to have the remaining metal work to be completed. They are hanging the doors, and mounting the rockers. Finally decided on a color for the truck. Was really torn between the teal and the hugger orange. Finally concluded that the teal was more "50's" and the orange was more "70's muscle". Looking forward to seeing some paint on my baby.

Looking good man. And that's a shame you had to upgrade those injectors lol.

Re: College restoration. My 71 c10

Love your color choice. I am having the same battle right now on colors, to go orange/white or black/white. I love my existing black and silver wheels on my K10 and want the color to match. Figure at the end of the day both are great looks. Keep up the good work!

Re: College restoration. My 71 c10

Pulled apart the old bed sides. Need to sandblast and determine if they are usable or if a repop bed is better.

Got some updated photos from the paint shop. Dropping the newly sandblasted doors off this weekend. Hoping the paint and body work has a quick turn around once they have the doors

I would try to use them unless they are completely rotten. I did a SWB conversion on mine and had to use repop. I bent one literally in half at the wheel well pushing it out to close the tailgate and I wasn't pushing very hard. The repops are super thin, they ting when you flick them.

I for sure will need to replace the tailgate, do you know if the repop tailgates work well with original bed sides? Split between trying to find a quality OEM tailgate or ordering a repop.

Re: College restoration. My 71 c10

They fit ok but are thinner than OEM as well. Post 163 on this thread shows the major alignment issue that can't really be resolved on the repop tailgates but it isn't that bad really.

Dad and I spent many hours working on the truck this weekend. While I was finishing up the C-Notches he worked to tack together an exhaust. What a stellar job!
