Re: Creamsicle: My 70 K10 SWB is about to get sweeter

Since I was moving the fuel tank to the rear of the truck, I kicked around what type of fuel fill I wanted. I looked at everything from bed fill, to side fill, license plate, side marker, tail light, and on and on. I didn't want to make this too complicated so I opted for the bed fill. I didn't want to have to do a bunch of body work and repaint the bed, since my bed floor isn't the greatest to start with. So I decided to install a bed kit in order to mount the Boyds 2" fuel fill connection. Since I'm calling this my Creamsicle build, I wanted to add a special touch to the bed floor.

Worked on installing the Boyd's 2" bed floor fill kit https://fueltankparts.com/products/b...60b74118&_ss=r

First I drilled the hole in the bed directly above the Rick's tank filler connection (touched up around the hole where I drilled later).

Used my hole saw to cut out the large hole, then drilled all mounting bolt holes.

Re: Creamsicle: My 70 K10 SWB is about to get sweeter

I'm going to try to route my AC and heater hose lines through the passenger side fresh air vent. In order to make the routing easier, I cut away some of the edge on the vent opening. This will give more room for the hoses. This vent will be closed off anyway due to the Vintage Air installation.

Great project. I may have missed it, but what headers did you end up using to replace the Doug Thorley's?

Re: Creamsicle: My 70 K10 SWB is about to get sweeter

The headers I'm using are Speed Engineering model 25-1021. They are kind of a short-to-mid length header. I was considering their long tube headers, but their website specifically states they do not fit 4WD. I didn't want to chance it.

I fit up the headers and so far they look good. I'm happy with the choice because I'll have to custom fit the exhaust around the transfer case cross member anyway. If I went with long tubes, I believe they would have come down lower and pointed directly at the cross member and it may have been more difficult to pipe around.

Looks like a lot of people have had luck with these on their 4WD swaps. I am going to order a set and give them a try. Thanks for the help! Keep up the great work.

Re: Creamsicle: My 70 K10 SWB is about to get sweeter

Since I'm going with a 4L60E transmission and column shift, I had to modify a high hump for my transfer case shifter only. Found a good high hump and cleaned it up and painted it. Then marked out for my transfer case shifter arm and made the cut.

Re: Creamsicle: My 70 K10 SWB is about to get sweeter

I am planning to mount my PCM under the passenger seat. The seat will be used with a set of Blazer seat tilt brackets. I drilled a hole and put a grommet in the area where the center console hump meets the floor pan. You can see I'm using rivet nuts to mount my console. I used them for my bucket seat mounts too, in the areas where I didn't have the stock mounting nuts.
