Re: Restomod 72 K10 "Good Memories"

White on bed done today. Blue tomorrow. Cut and buff next week. Will spray the remaining interior parts first part of the week. That is glove box door, ash tray, defrost vents and A/C vents. Will need to matte the defrost vents and dash as well. Painter said end of next week. Will see.

Bed is painted. Installed the new rear shackle hangers while paint was being done on bed. Will remove rear crossmember and install new one between hangers. Gives a perspective on how much longer the new rear springs are.
New front spring hangers will be installed about 6" farther forward than originals.

Re: Restomod 72 K10 "Good Memories"

Last of the parts painted. Tried an experiment with tailgate letters. Painted white decals with the Acrylic Urethane paint. Would probably apply sooner and spray paint a bit thicker next time. May do another set but it looks okay. All that is left is to spray dash and defrost vents with matte clear and cut/buff.

Re: Restomod 72 K10 "Good Memories"

Put the bed and gate back on today. Last of paint tomorrow or Wednesday. Rear spring hangers will show under the bumper about 2" as well as the 31 gallon tank with skid plate. Was expecting that and do not mind. Still two more runs of buffing/polishing to go I am told. Lots of people have seen the truck now and feedback has been real positive regarding the colors. One person said it does not look "period correct" Would say that color is somewhat between light and medium blue, but also is not as "dirty" as the painter puts it.

Re: Restomod 72 K10 "Good Memories"

Thanks for the compliments. Dash was matted yesterday and interior of drivers door re-sprayed due to a run that I sanded through. Buffing and polishing has not been completed on truck and bed lid needs color sand/buff. Hoping to get it back next week. Those that have had this done know how paint jail is.

Re: Restomod 72 K10 "Good Memories"

Truck finally came home a few days ago. Installed the mirrors the other day and tackled the windshield today. It took a few hours, I had forgotten they can be a struggle sometimes. Trying to decide if I want to chance taking it to the frame shop. Still drivable right now. Will tackle the engine and transmission swap as soon as I get all the glass in.

Re: Restomod 72 K10 "Good Memories"

Thanks to all. Was working on reassembling the doors. Rebuilt the vent windows with nos rubber I was saving. Turned out nice. Ran into a snag with the window regulators and switches. Waiting for parts. Was thinking of adding a paint detail on rear slider and had to order more paint for that. Should have a small update next week.

Have been mostly retired for almost a year but have been getting asked to go to work by people I know in my industry every time I visit the suppliers. Being offered more money than I have ever made. Being told they have lots of work and their people will not come back to work? IDK. Will put a damper on the build but will put more in the coffers. Still thinking about it.

Re: Restomod 72 K10 "Good Memories"

Thanks for the nudge. Been lurking a bit and thinking about posting. Not a lot to see. Took a break from working on the truck partially due to health reasons. All good now. Did some projects on the house that my wife has been wanting done for some time. Have been working on and off for the painter that did my truck. Mostly doing R&R. Has been fun, doing an original 67 Corvette big block right now among other stuff. A bit done on the truck before and after the break. Doors are mostly assembled and power windows are good. Still waiting on rear window. Have not decided on slider or fixed glass. Worked on rear crossmember today again, ready for fitment. From a 90 Blazer to fit the tank and skid plate of same year. Had to be stretched over an inch and narrowed to fit into the frame rails. Will work on getting it fitted tomorrow if weather is decent. Also get to reinforcing rear frame extensions. Got the filler neck cut and reconfigured to work with the fuel door.

Re: Restomod 72 K10 "Good Memories"

Hey Richard, I did the same cross member as you but it came out of a 91 burb. I also have the skid plate I will need to alter a little as you did. Looking good!!!
