I'm thinking now maybe I could have done it this way afterall.
Nope, I had no issues with it. I would have liked to do that but it seemed like more work and I didn't want to put back in all the carriage bolts.

Re: C10 Goldilocks

Got the motor freshened up. LQ4 with an LS6 intake, holley EFI fuel rails, AN-4 steamline fittings, F body water pump, low mount f body alternator, high mount F body power steering and dirty dingo spacers to maintain the truck crank pulley (which desperately needs to be painted or replaced). Still need to get a new set of valve covers - will likely end up with the small block script covers. Waiting on the power steering pulley and tensioner too. Nervous the orange and black will look weird with a gold firewall but we shall see. I wish I could have just kept the three piece vortec cover and avoided this whole expense but it didn't fit with the cover on. Oh well.

Before and after

Much better than a blue, don't ya think
Should be okay because the side markers and tail lights are orange and red and look fine against the gold - I figure the Chevy Orange is just kinda a blend of the two.

Of course not. 15x5 3.75BS and 15x10 4.5BS with 235/70/15 and 275/60/15.
They're wheel vintique wheels with diamonback classic wide whites.

I went back and fourth with running a big wheel or not, ultimately it came down to satisfying an itch I always had for white walls. Maybe I'll switch it up one day but I love this look.

Worst part of the car culture is how everyone thinks they invented it. You'll enjoy the c10 community much much more.

Re: C10 Goldilocks

Looks good! Here's an idea for you.. keep what you have and just add some holley coil covers, painted to resemble the sbc script covers, but a big block size. Here's what mine looks like now.

The motor turned out very clean. I'm sure it will look great under the hood.

Re: C10 Goldilocks

More progress. Finished shaving the firewall - there were still a few small holes I needed to weld up, also added three holes in the center, two for the coils and one for the main harness. I also put some body filler on it to get it laser straight as before i just seam sealed it and called it good. Had a buddy come and shoot some PPG 23048 which is the anniversay gold. It matches real well. Took 7 coats to cover though as it's a very translucent paint. Got the motor back in with some small block valve cover adapters. Got a PSI harness to replace the OEM one I had and she's back to running 3 months later. Instead of running pigtails off the coil park harness I unpinned the plug, unloomed the harness, pulled it all back before the firewall grommet, added a ground and repinned everything. That way I don't have a wire going out of the cab just to come back in. I used ICT coil mounts and put them underneath the rain tray and siliconed the holes from the top side. Made the wires to length using some ceramic boots and high temp wires. Had to move the alternator from the lower driverside position to upper passenger side because it hit the steering rack. Finally got around to mounting the hood with the porterbuilt hinges. Still need to do a few small brake lines, bleed the MC and brakes, adjust the shift column linkage (doesn't go lower than drive currently) and some other small things like figure out coolant hoses. It's the little things that slow you down.

I really love how clean the engine bay is - for now atleast. I desperately want to get some Hills inner fenders and I want to make a cover for the chassis wiring on the drivers side. I'll also get around to splitting the alternator and having the casing powder coated black. It looks like crap with the OEM silver.

Re: C10 Goldilocks

Thanks everyone - feeling pretty happy with it. Just wish i didn't have to cover up the frame and engine bay with a crusty body hah. No plans to paint it for now at least.

Re: C10 Goldilocks

Amazing build. Read the entire thing and has me antsy to work on my 68 as well. I come from open desert off-roading so this "low-life" C10 scene is completely alien to me but already loving it.
