Re: 84 K10 Custom Deluxe 5.3 build

I decided to change direction slightly and will be taking my time and straightening out all of the body panels. I figured I should build up my body work skills on something, might as well be on this. At least if I put it in primer it will give me time to work one panel/section at a time. Body work tools on the way

Short video from this weekend.

Yes, I have been slowly working on getting it in primer. It's been hot so I have been taking it slow, panel at a time, if not my respirator gets all sweaty lol. I should have the primer done either by the end of the weekend or next week some time. I'm hoping after some wet sanding it will look half way decent, or at least good enough to hold me over.

Where it's at now.

Re: 84 K10 Custom Deluxe 5.3 build

I wet sanded with 400/800 then got her washed up and set the new grill and light bezels in place, I need to get some mounting hardware. At least it's smooth enough to run a chamois over it. I need to find a cool bow tie for the grill.

Re: 84 K10 Custom Deluxe 5.3 build

Nice work looks great. Wet sanding gives a real appreciation for how much SF of body a full size long bed has!

Thanks, definitely a lot of work, I don't know how the guys with a year of rust repair do it!!! Your Long truck is looking great also!

Today I figured I would take you guys with me on a trail ride, the rocky section of the trail anyways. Locked front / rear on 35's got me through no problem, I almost turned around but figured what the hell!!!

Re: 84 K10 Custom Deluxe 5.3 build

Great vid. I would have a hard time being that brave after all that body work. Good driving too.

Thank Marcus! It will probably be in primer for 10 years lol, so I'm ok with small dents and scratches. I just don't want to bash the side in or make it so a door won't open.

Re: 84 K10 Custom Deluxe 5.3 build

I got a good deal so I picked up a parts truck, going to replace my welded up 10 bolt and 14 bolt SF that has served me well with a 10 bolt / 14 bolt 4:10 full floater, and actually put a locker in the 14 bolt. I will probably weld the 10 Bolt because I'm cheap and hopefully it will hold me over until I pick up a Dana 60.

Re: 84 K10 Custom Deluxe 5.3 build

Hey Dave, glad to hear you're saving another square! Damn, we don't have to worry about spiders up here but we do have to worry about rust...ha ha. You wouldn't have to give that truck away up here either, you would probably be able to sell it for 2 or 3 grand the way it is!! Love seeing all of the rust free trucks down in you neck of the woods.
Awesome work as always, still lovin the videos Keep em coming.

Thanks old yelr, I might still sell it later on but I feel like she needs a little life put back into her. Plus another project never hurt anyone right? Other than siphon money from the other projects, and piss off the old lady lol

Re: 84 K10 Custom Deluxe 5.3 build

Brake work this week, Master cylinder and then the driver side rear adjuster was locked up, so I got in, freed it up and pad slapped it.
