Re: 81 Chevy K10 ShortBed

Took advantage of the local pick n pull 40% off Memorial day weekend sale and got a headliner and headliner trim that is in awesome shape. Paid 20$ for everything. When my truck gets back from paint I will put it on with some fatmat on the roof.

The truck I got it from was a 74 Cheyenne super short bed, it definitely did not deserve to be in the junkyard no rust and the cab was pretty straight the bed however was shot. It also had a nicer woodgrain dash with matching door panels.

Here is a picture of the trim:

Re: 81 Chevy K10 ShortBed

At one time I had a 74 Chyeene Super. Blue and white. Probably should have kept it.

Re: 81 Chevy K10 ShortBed

Ok guys looks like photobucket decided to nerf all my pictures unless I subscribe to them for a monthly fee, so for now on I gotta use a different host to upload from.

It's red! I will be picking it up next Thursday.

Re: 81 Chevy K10 ShortBed

Looks great! Same color I painted mine.

I used Photobucket for my build thread also. I just checked it and kind of expected my pictures to be gone, but they are still there. Not sure what the deal is. I don't think I was paying a fee. Guess I better check my credit card!

Re: 81 Chevy K10 ShortBed

How many coats of the Raptor Liner is that? It doesn't look extremely thick. I was planning on using that on the underside of the cab and bed as well as in the bed.

I do not know, I will ask the painter when I pick it up. I have heard that raptor liner is pretty good for the money. I just don't have the coin for linex. I don't work this truck that hard anyway so hopefully it will last.

Re: 81 Chevy K10 ShortBed

Ok here it is all done. There are a few spots that need to be touched up and the roof needs to be re cleared. Besides that it looks good.

Re: 81 Chevy K10 ShortBed

Update? I haven't done much to the truck, just been driving it. I added the wheel arch moldings that come on silverado models, breaks up the red nicely. I still need to have the roof redone and some spots touched up, but it polishes out nicely. I will be putting the truck in my local chevy dealer car show in a couple of weeks so today I cleaned up the engine bay. I still need to get a steering column as well.

Here are some pictures of the engine bay when I first got it with the sick 350 that had a flat cam and 2 dead cylinders


And how it looks now
