Thanks Rian.

I got the driver floor pan tacked in this morning. Working on getting the kick panel to fit properly at the top.

Re: 64 C10 Stepside "Jaybird"

Well I started out sandblasting the front of the frame yesterday but the North winds quickly put a stop to that. Blowing in at 27mph. So I switched gears and almost finished welding up the floor pan. I still have a few holes to weld up. Taking the time to let it cool was killing my patience just wanted to keep going and finish.

Metal to metal bondo is going to be my friend on this job. Although no one will ever see any of this once it is done.








Can't wait to get the cab finished so I can pull it and start serious on the frame and suspension.







I start vacation in 11 days. I will be off for 12 days and hope to get all of the cab welded up so I can pull it and start on the bottom of the cab and the frame rebuild. Ordering all of the suspension parts and frontend rebuild on Thursday.

Bret

Re: 64 C10 Stepside "Jaybird"

Nice job repairing the floor in your truck, I looked back at post 17 to get a before and after view, looks good, it really came together nice. Are you using flux core or Gas with your mig welder?

Thanks Whippinsaw. I started out using Gas but it ran out and my dad didn't want to rent the cylinder anymore as he hasn't used his welder in the last five years so we switched it over to flux core. I find the flux core easier even though you have to do some cleaning after.

I spent 2 hours after work yesterday and got the passenger floor cutout. Should be able to weld the patch in tonight. I found a huge wasp nest in the front cab support!

Re: 64 C10 Stepside "Jaybird"

Thanks guys. It came out alright. I got the passenger side welded in last night. It lined up much better. My first cut was damn near perfect. Instead of using the sheet metal clamps I used the big triangle welding magnets and the made it much easier to lineup up the panel.

Just ordered all my parts for the frontend rebuild and the rest of the cab patch panels I needed. I saved a ton of money buying all my fontend parts from Amazon. All Moog too. The difference between O'riellys and Amazon for all my parts was like $350 difference!

Here is what I bought

upper and lower ball joints
upper and lower control arm shaft assemblies
Inner and outer tie rod ends
rear control arm bushings (polyurethane)
track arm bushings (polyurethane)
Idler arm
Pitman arm

I also bought a new ram jack for my engine hoist since it already failed after only 2 uses and some metal to metal bondo from Evercoat And a 9/16" drill bit for the lower control arm u bolt upgrade.

Good progress

Amazing how much money you can save shopping around.

Will call you again sometime when I am awake late so it takes up the time difference.

Re: 64 C10 Stepside "Jaybird"

Great job repairing your cab. Looks like you didn't have to replace your cab supports? Also like the sand blasting booth you made up! Think I will do the same!!

Thank you Mike. No sir the cab supports where good which I am very thankful. My cab rot was really not that bad. The rear cab corners are good with only a few pin holes. The rot in the floorboards would have been less if they had been repaired correctly. The driver side just had a piece of galvanized steel plate spot welded over the rust and made it worse. The passenger side was patched with fiberglass very poorly and then the footwell was riveted to the firewall! I did coat the front cab supports with a rust coating since I could access them.

Re: 64 C10 Stepside "Jaybird"

Sure don't know how I missed your build, but I am caught up now….
I would be seriously concerned about your boy that's in a pic on page 1… He looks deep in thought, mmmm what can I do to get this away from dad??? Just joking! Great bonding time!

Sandblast booth... consider that plan stolen...
Very Nice on the cab repair...

Re: 64 C10 Stepside "Jaybird"

Thanks Don. Its funny you should notice that as my ultimate goal is to build this truck for my boys to enjoy when they get older. They are 5 and 7 so I have some time. The one in the picture is the 5 year old and he loves being in the garage and helping with everything. He is going to be a maker for sure.

Of course I am going to enjoy it as well until they are old enough too.

Re: 64 C10 Stepside "Jaybird"

I spent some time this morning working on the passenger fender. I guessed it was hiding some damage as the core support on that side was damaged a little. From then inside there were several holes with bondo coming out of them and about a 3/4" deep dent. OUCH.

I cleaned off all the bondo




I had to remove this brace to have access for the hammer on the inside


This is what I ended up with after some hammering. Not to bad will still require some bondo but not 1/2" thick at least


I switched gears after that and starting stripping all the front suspension. Here is where I ended for the day.

I have got all my goodies for the front end except the idler arm. Should be here in the next couple of days. Also still waiting on my patch panels from Top Banana

Here is all the stuff I bought on Amazon.




One more 10 hour shift and then I'm on vacation for 12 days!

That's a great stack of parts you got there! I'll bet you can't wait to get started. I just finished vacation and didn't do a thing to the truck. Just played.

Looks like you are going to be able to get some stuff done vacation!

BTW those are some cool wood projects on you bench. Did you make them?

Yes sir. Woodworking is my other serious hobby. I build mostly furniture and scale models. I spent almost 10 months building the steam train.





And last summer I had a little time frame with rockets. They are pretty simple to make on the lathe and a lot of fun.

Mark I


Mark II


Mark III


Mark IV This was my favorite one.


I also spent a year making this 1/10 scale Scania Truck


and my 1/10 scale small block Chevy for the 32' Ford I'm building.

Re: 64 C10 Stepside "Jaybird"

Your woodworking skills are top notch. My grandfather built custom cabinets after he retired from the fire department. I wish I could have learned more from him before he passed away. Your attention to detail on those projects is awsome!
