Re: 1965 C10 ... Project Name: Just Learnin'

Let me preface these pictures by saying these bolts were all started by hand!! (I'm not a retard) I could turn them in with not issues, but about three threads in and they would lock solid. Then due to some poor hardware the bolt heads would strip out or the bolt would break..


First broken bolt


All good enough sticking out to solve the problem!

SECOND ONE... NOW IM PISSED!


SO CUT EVERYTHING APART... CUT OFF ALL HIS HARDWARE AND WELD ON NEW GRADE 8 STUFF!!!!


and thankfully I had a good welding day.

This is how she ended up. Never got a pic with the hood on yet but everything is mounted and fits well, unfortunately I still can't use the fourth shock due to clearance issues with the heater so now I have fancy expensive hood hinges but still have to hold the hood up by hand hahhaa

oops forgot about the exhaust... well I'm running out of time tonight so basically I'll just say, bought a 2.5" universal kit from flow master and started hacking and cutting, kept everything up inside the frame rail and rocker, then dumped them straight out the fender... because why not.

Re: 1965 C10 ... Project Name: Just Learnin'

ok so i looked at the truck the other day and the girlfriend was right this paint sucks!! its not ratty and sun beaten enough to have a really nice patina and its too beat up to polish and look nice. since a paint job is not anywhere in the near future when it comes to the budget I was trying to figure out what I should do.....
