Re: 72 K30 Build

Almost sounds to me that all they cared about was selling stock on hand rather than make a revised product for a customer, get a deposit and make him wait until he'll accept what we got kinda deal? Irregardless I'm sure it will look great!

I agree with swamp rat. You should get what you paid for unless they are going to give you some type of discount.

It does look nice but it does stink you didn't get what you wanted in the end.

Perhaps, they really seemed to struggle with the passenger side fill. Surprised by the tail panel though as all the RD style beds come with tread plate from my research.

I think so Rick, just glad something showed that we can use. Communication & customer service has not really been a priority for them, weíre just the little guy with one small order.

Theyíre not a custom shop so perhaps I was expecting too much? The whole drawing thing is something that they donít usually do according to our salesman.


Flatbed update; Funny thing is that we havenít actually paid a deposit and I still havenít accepted the bed yet as of this morning. Earlier when it first came in our salesman was very eager to transport it to the vendor whoís slated to do the install. With my experience with these guys so far, I told him we appreciated it but didnít want to move it until I could inspect and verify. A week ago from this last Friday (6/30), thatís when the pics were taken I told him that I wasnít 100% sure that weíd accept the bed.

Still waiting to hear what they are going to do to make it right. Informed the salesman a few days ago that we can make the bed work by reconfiguring our fuel tank, also suggested that we could cut the tool boxes off but Iíd need them taken off the total price?


Glued on some weather stripping using tape to hold it in place over night, worked like a charm. Time to adjust and build out the doors.

Re: 72 K30 Build

BANG! Not really, took a couple of days but the doors are almost done, need to redo the window sweep and maybe the fuzzy on the right side. The glass channel catches the fuzzy when rolling it up a ľĒ from the top. Figured out the mistake for the left side but the right has gotta be reworked a little, everything else is working perfecto. Going to wait to finish that door (door panel, handles, etc.) for another sweep/fuzzy set thatís ordered to arrive, pretty sure itís going to ruin the current ones to try and remove.

It's looking very nice Brett! Glue on door seals? Sheesh. I wouldn't go back to them since I got my push on ones.

Re: 72 K30 Build

Thanks Ryan, you know thinking about it is as far as it got. Had the glue on type that came with our kit so I just used those, weíll have to try out the push on ones with the C10 project. Seems like you could use the push on style during mockup for door fitment and then remove for paint?


Finally wrapped up most of the head light wiring harness just prior to hanging fenders & the cowl.

Wow, that is coming together very nicely! I know you probably have a list T's to cross but you have to be very close to the finish line now - probably get there before I do

Re: 72 K30 Build

That looks great! Yeah, you could use them for mock up before paint and remove them and reinstall them. That white makes everything look perfect.

Thanks Ryan! The big Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich makes a nice contrast to the parts bolted on her.




Iíd hoped to have the hood on for todayís pics but didnít quite make it, maybe this one will do!


Flatbed update; Resolved our issues over the phone yesterday with the local vendor and CM. The local stores general manager got CM to authorize free tool boxes, thatís about a $600 discount off our bill! Cha-Ching!

Thatís really nice of you too say Mike, I appreciate it thank you! Youíre doing a great job on the Swamp Rat. Honestly the bed deal is working out pretty sweet, got the really good deal and when we are done I wonít even have to walk around the truck to fill it up!

Thanks rgreathouse me too!



Hood is on!

Flatbed update; Itís go time now we own it, went down last Friday to conclude business and arrange the transportation of the bed to our install vendor (no charge to us). Next stop was Semi Service to make sure that weíre on their schedule. Wanted to meet the service department representative and get an idea of how things are going to work. http://www.semiservice.com

Thanks $20071k10! We kept all the parts used through this build as either a 72 or 84 Chevrolet/GMC, so itís an 84 Blazer/Suburban 31-gallon w/large neck. Pageís 16-17 of the build covers the fuel tank mockup hereís a link to part numbers in post #400. http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...&postcount=400



There was an epic fuzzy battle that took place and Iíll say the fuzzy put up a good fight! Window does roll all the way up much better than before and with the door panel installed the interior is 98% done, just four or five very small jobs left (sill plates, etc.). No pics, but a top coat on the inner fenders/wheel wells, bumper brackets etc. did happen.

That all looks pristine! I had the same issues when I put my doors together on my 72. I was really nervous trying not to scratch the paint getting the new, bad wiper off. What a bad deal. Haha

What is this?? I'm gone for a measly two months and when I come back, you've done built the whole truck.

For real though, it's looking fantastic. Also love your method for bleeding the brakes, I'll remember that next time

Thanks Ryan! Yep me too, almost impossible not to scratch up stuff when your messing with these. Used tape several times to help protect the finish and did a round of touchup after removing the first just prior to installing the second new set.

Yes sir, itís been milked long enough and with the bed install date quickly approaching, itís go time! Thanks a lot Jim, you and your build have been a great help! Howís that huge shop your building coming along?



Got the inner fenders installed, buttoned up the last under the hood to doísÖ while some new stuff showed up. Needed to rework the new grill insert just a little (quik sand & repaint) but hey LMC gave it to us for our trouble, sahweet!

Re: 72 K30 Build

I thought it fit great to the repop surround it went in, very tight, my thumbs are still sore from installing the plastic clips!



Yes, the K30ís getting its face! Used all original OEM brackets behind the surround and grill. Riveted it in place with a new install kit, Iíve got no complaints about the repop stuff. LMC did offer to send another grill after they saw the pics. After waiting a couple days and getting out my best grills it seemed the quickest solution was to do a quick repair on the new grill rather than wait for another to arrive.

Re: 72 K30 Build

That's great the outer fits great! I've wondered how they actually did. The price isn't bad when you think how many hours you'll have in straightening and polishing an OEM one. I have over 40hrs in the one for my 72 and it isn't done yet. It won't be going on it now either due to my front bumper. Guess I have to find another truck to put it on. Haha
