Thank You Rian. I am pushing as hard as I can to get as much stuff done before my vacation ends. I really wanted to have all the bed panels done and mocked up on the truck but that might be a long shot.

Not really sure when I will be done just keep pushing to the finish line. If you are talking about my truck being at the show that would be tough to make. I am really hoping to have it driving under its own power and stopping by Xmas time.

Re: 64 C10 Stepside "Jaybird"

Worked half day today and my body just gave out again. So I went inside and helped the wife with some chores and hung out with my boys.

Got this ready for some metal 2 metal.

20171007_105642 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

My buddy John talked me into doing bodywork on all the bed panels so here is the start.

20171007_110633 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171007_110628 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

When I block sanded the driver fender I had 2 high spots near my patch weld so I knocked them down gently but accidentally messed up some of my metal 2 metal so sanded it down and reapplied some more. UGH.

20171007_110620 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

Next up was working on my cross sills. I was originally going to sandblast them to bare metal but after looking at them and cleaning them up they aren't that bad. My FIL shot these with red oxide primer when he repainted the truck. What little rust I did have I shot with Rust encaspulator. Will let that dry for 24 hours and then prime and shoot them satin Black.

Re: 64 C10 Stepside "Jaybird"

This all I got done yesterday.

20171008_141240 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171008_154007 by bjohnson388, on Flickr


But I did a little better today. Last day of vacation. Back to the rat race tomorrow.

20171009_090440 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171009_090446 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171009_093445 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

All sanded down. Need to block them and put glazing putty in a few places and then one more coat of High build and block again and see where I am at.

20171009_092923 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171009_093440 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

Forgot to take a pic of the fender before high build.

20171009_104310 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171009_104319 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171009_104329 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

Starting to look more like a truck.

20171009_110617 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

Really proud of this Driver fender. It is by no means perfect but much better than the mess it was. Can't wait to get the driver door done.

20171009_110631 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171009_110641 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

Got 2 coats of Satin Black on the bed sills.

20171009_152534 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

This tailgate is a mess. It is bowed, which I think I can get most of it out its only on the top. It has several deep dents on the bottom that I will have to drill a hole and use the slide hammer to pull out and then weld back up.

20171009_143228 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171009_143233 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

The bow in the top.

20171009_143238 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

Someone used it as a workbench too much. SMH.

20171009_143257 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

Pulled out the other bedside and started stripping didn't finish but got a good start.

20171009_143608 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

It is in alot better shape than the other side.

20171009_143613 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171009_152745 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

Both stake pockets need some attention.

20171009_152748 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171009_152753 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171009_154823 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

And that concludes my vacation progress.

Thanks for stopping in,

Bret

Thank you Rian. The boys asked if it was driveable yet at which I replied no and they seem to lose interest for the moment.

Thank you. It is slowly coming along. Maybe by Spring/Summer it will be close to finished.

Re: 64 C10 Stepside "Jaybird"

Started today off cleaning out the "sanford corner" beside my shed. With all the bed parts nearly gone from it except the passenger fender and bed strips it is pretty well emptied out.

My bed strips needed some straightening. Also the rear bed sill is in terrible shape. I never really looked at is since I took it off the truck. I am going to straighten the best I can for now but it needs to be replaced.

20171015_114121 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171015_114119 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

You can kinda see my cleanup in the back of the photo. If you look real close you can see the line on the fence where the bedsides where. The fence still looks new. The bed sill looks like it was run over by a train.

20171015_114137 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171015_114145 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

Bed strips all hammered straight. I will have to buy at least one as my BIL cut the very middle one to install the stupid rear gas tank he fumbled together.

20171015_115403 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

After some hammering on the middle of the sill. It looks a little bit better.

20171015_123416 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

Still bowed like crazy.

20171015_123431 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

And the tailgate is bowed the other way. What a mess.

20171015_123550 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171015_123558 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171015_123601 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

After messing with it for a little bit started on the bodywork for the driver bedside.

20171015_164539 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

6 applications of filler later and it is looking better.

20171015_164533 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

Ready for some primer and then some blocking and probably a little bit more mud in a few places I missed.

20171015_171814 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

I was able to knock 99% of all the dents that where in the top rail out.

20171015_171820 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171015_173407 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171015_173413 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

That's it for today.

Thanks for looking,

Bret

Re: 64 C10 Stepside "Jaybird"

Blocked the primer and sprayed a coat of high build after work today. Still have a few low spots to fill.

Re: 64 C10 Stepside "Jaybird"

Last night I blocked out the High build coat. Still have just a few small places to fix with glazing putty.

20171018_185243 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

This morning flipped it over to finish stripping and welding up the holes in the rail.

20171019_081208 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171019_083916 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

I also ground down all the spot welds on the angle strips and where the stake pockets are attached.

20171019_083950 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

A small mix up of metal to metal for a few of the spot welds and the holes I welded up on the rail.

20171019_120504 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

This is about as clean as it is going to get.

20171019_120509 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171019_120524 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

There are some really hard to reach places that really needed to be sandblasted but I didn't really feel like messing with it. So I hand sanded them the best I could.

20171019_120520 by bjohnson388, on Flickr
I put it face up for the first coat of primer so I could get a good coat in the top part of the rail. Even the factory did not get much paint in there.

20171019_132547 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171019_132558 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

The strip you see left unpainted is where I applied some rust neutralizer. It has to dry for 24 hours before a topcoat.

20171019_142308 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171019_142317 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

After lunch I drug out the passenger bedside to finish stripping the outside of it.

20171019_144822 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171019_144817 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171019_144828 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

By 5 o clock I had it looking pretty good. This bedside is in much better shape than the driver. Just have a small place at the front to weld and knock down a few dents.

20171019_165417 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171019_165424 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

20171019_165448 by bjohnson388, on Flickr

That's it for today thanks for looking.
