84 K10 Custom Deluxe 5.3 build

I got her home tonight, it was definitely some work getting her off the trailer and into the garage. There will be plenty of pics and videos to come.

The K10 introduction.

Subscribed. What's the plan? Other than a 5.3...

To be honest I'm not sure just yet as far as the engine goes, I might use a different engine all together! One thing is for sure it will be different. It is either getting a healthy cam, headers and a different Intake, or maybe a swoosher, while there are so many reasons I want to go F.I. there are so many reasons why I don't want to.

As far as the truck goes, all efforts will be made to keep it straight, minimal fender trimming, functional interior to make a nice running / driving truck. The uses that pop into my head...

-Towing / Hauling
-Camping
-Mild Wheelin
-SHREDDING SAND DUNES!
-MASHING DOWN DESERT DIRT ROADS!

It will morph into doing these things!

Looking good! The mechanical stuff is right up my alley, the wiring is not my thing and would be a nightmare for me.

Enjoying your videos!

Re: 84 K10 Custom Deluxe 5.3 build

You are cranking right along on this project! I am curious to see how your fill and door turn out. I want to add a burb tank to my crew and thought it would be cool to have another stock looking door in the back to fill the big tank.

Progress is being made, although I don't know If I have the fab skills to pull off a stock looking fuel door. I would have to either cut one off my bed and move it back or cut one from a donor bed, I'm still rattling around other Ideas in my head.

Saturday Update
