Re: Ideals on c10

Nice truck. At this point you already have the patina theme going. I would attempt to get it road worthy, check brakes and running gear. From there I would drive it, a lot! I love the wide wheels!

I like the truck just the way it looks, and agree with above, get it running and drive it!

Re: Ideals on c10

I'd spray it down with ATF, let it set overnight, then wash the rust off with soap and water. Follow that up with a good buffing and about 4 coats of good wax.
I'd also hose out the cab corners, rocker panels and inner fenders. get ALL the dirt mud N crud out of there, and let it dry.
I would steam clean the under side, and engine compartment, paying extra attention to nooks and crannies (what the hell are crannies?)
After that, I'd do gear oil, brakes, u joints, grease the chassis, get it running, evaluate what is necessary to make it safe and dependable.
Also, I would start looking for a grill and bumper.
Looks like a fun project, good luck, have fun, keep us posted.

Re: Ideals on c10

^^^What Russ said X2^^^

I think crannies are the parts where the sun don't shine... perhaps even in between those parts... You may need some lube to get to the deeper cranny regions.

Re: Ideals on c10

I would paint it. It looks like it could be a nice looking truck with a paint job

I’m curious about “spraying it down with ATF”?
What does this do, and how much of a mess is it to clean off?

3rd agree. The patina fad is on the way out, and 10 years to late in my opinion. Paint it or plastic coat it.

Just helps remove surface rust, without harming what's left of the paint. you'll still have to scrub, but it will take a little less elbow grease, ATF is a great rust remover and has a lot of detergent in it.Spray it on with a spray bottle or pressure pump, let it set, wash it off with Dawn soap and warm water. a little messy, but works pretty good and is cheap.

Re: Ideals on c10

^ People wash with CLR to do the same thing right - to remove the rust? Would CLR be a little better for the environment than ATF?
