1965 c10 patina build

This is going to be a patina build. I have always painted my trucks I restored but I have always wanted to do one without the body and paint work. My plans are redo all the interior including paint, seat. carpet. wiring. rust repair. Rebuild all the brakes, new suspension, engine ect. I have a rebuilt 350 and a 400 transmission. I am also adding power steering. I have a set of rally wheels bought and am planning on buying new 265-60-15 inch tires. I am lowering the front 1 inch and the rear 3 inch. I am also going to redo the bed floor. I already have the new strips and bolts bought and floor pans, rockers, Here are some pictures.https://flic.kr/p/2jgUtcXhttps://flic.kr/p/2jgXk32

I've always liked the natural baby blue patina.

Re: 1965 c10 patina build

Truck looks good and your making good progress ! Our trucks are almost identical and have the same rust issues lol . My outer eyebrow was rusted just on the ends like yours but soon as I removed the roof skin I could see a lot more rust on that panel . I always blast the cab now first and get a better idea of what Iím working with
