Re: 68 K-10 SWB build thread - project Money Pit...pics galore!

been awhile... I just added natural gas furnace to my pole barn and my daughter has been helping me with the truck. We've installed the door that I picked up in the last post and fired the engine. Next will be to finish the cab sheet metal replacement and hang some new fenders, nose and hood... pics to come in the next few weeks.

thanks, I also just took command of a 500 Soldier aviation maintenance battalion. There goes one weekend a month and two weeks in the summer. I'm still full time, probably serve another 6-8 years is my plan right now.

Re: 68 K-10 SWB build thread - project Money Pit...pics galore!

this will be the longest project EVER!

picked up some Arizona sheetmetal... now I have a factory set and an aftermarket set just in case... looks like i'm heading overseas again next year and I do plan to hand this truck over to the body shop either before or during that deployment.
