Thanks, I'm still planning on painting the truck myself at this point. We'll see if that holds true as I get closer. As far as the color I still plan on going with the original 503 Light Green color code.

Thank you. Unfortunately, the Sears where I live closed down several years ago. The toolbox was on sale over Christmas at Lowe's since Craftsman is now part of Stanley Black and Decker. I'm really hoping they can bring back the brand. I liked that the box is made in Sedalia, Missouri just like my old Craftsman box and the drawer fronts are unique. I had to take it apart to get it out of my truck and it is really well made.

I just made those high hump parts myself based on images I saw of originals. I spot welded them to the underside of the cab floor. They helped to stiffen up the sheet metal overhang quite a bit.

Yep, the heater is nice. Definitely money well spent. I was doing the portable propane setup prior to this. I had to tell myself that yes I could by more truck parts instead of a heater but this will make me more productive (and more comfortable) during the cold season. It has a 10 year warranty and this version pulls fresh air from the outside so I don't have to worry about paint fumes running through it if I decided to paint inside.

Re: Project "Financial Burden": 1968 SWB C10

I finally completed the installation of the 69-72 style bucket seats that I picked up quite some time ago. These are actually out of 1971 Blazer. I'll need to do some upholstery work on them of course. I went with the 1975 and up Blazer console to get cup holders instead of the seat belt buckle provisions. I also fabricated my own under floor cab brace that I think others might be interested in as well. Hereís a link to the installation details.

Next thing on my list is mounting the under dash AC head unit from Restomod Air.

I don’t plan on running bucket seats but that write up you did is very detailed and will be much appreciated by many! Looks like good progress moving forward. As always, excellent work! I’m super excited to hear those turbos light.

I finished the Restomod Air under dash unit mounting and put in a Lokar throttle pedal. I'm now gearing up to complete all things plumbing related (exhaust, engine, turbo, brakes, etc.).

Re: Project "Financial Burden": 1968 SWB C10

Looking good, patiently awaiting your mock up and running AC. I assume you have a relative idea where you are going to run the turbo piping? I want to run AC on my truck but will only be running a single turbo. Just not a ton of room for the AC in the stock location and a turbo. Keep up the progress.
