Re: Fix and Sale 72 GMC 3/4 ton 4x4 K2500

Here is the second half of the two truck deal I made a few weeks ago. 1972 1/2 ton Cheyenne 4x4 with original paint, rally rims, automatic trans, AC...etc. It has some rust in the rockers and inner rockers, all four cab supports are good and one cab corner is starting to show signs of rust. Bottom of doors will need some attention also. It will be 3rd in line for restoration after the GMC and the Light Blue truck are wrapped up. I am really starting to love these 4x4 as much as the 2 wheel drives.

Re: Fix and Sale 72 GMC 3/4 ton 4x4 K2500

Quick update on truck, finished the last of getting any dings or dents out of rear bed panel. Will be finally getting some paint on the bedside and the front fender. Its a long nice weekend with labor day added to the mix. Time to start getting caught up on this and move on to the next 4x4.

Also wanted to say very displeased with the seat cover I put over the old bench seat. I probably have sat in it about 5 or 6 times to move the truck in the driveway, and it is shredded like the material was rotten. Buyer beware the seller on Amazon "Seat Covers Unlimited" will not stand behind the seat covers. I guess I will be ordering a period correct cover before it goes down the road.

Re: Fix and Sale 72 GMC 3/4 ton 4x4 K2500

Finished the first of getting bedside ready for paint. Wrapped up knocking down any rock chips and areas that I did any metal work on with 220 grit wet n dry paper. Then finished off with a little "Tec" etch primer to any of the bare metal areas. Now moving on to the next phase with shooting some filler primer over the entire bedside. Knock that down with a long dura-block with wet and dry paper, wipe down with wax and grease cleaner. Finally shoot some color left over from doing the rockers and bottom of the doors.

Its not perfect by any means, however it is much better than the old bedside that was crunched and had areas that the metal actually ripped by the stake pockets. I would call it driver quality, there is probably a few small areas that are not perfect.

My intentions are to fix the items that I could fix and sell the truck. I had three items that I wanted to finish before selling, replace the seat cover again, four new 235/85r16 tires on order now and painting the bedside and front fender. Getting the painting over with this weekend will leave the other two items to do then sell it and on to the next 4x4 project.

Re: Fix and Sale 72 GMC 3/4 ton 4x4 K2500

Well finally got paint on bedside around noon. Had to wait until the temperature was around 75 degrees. The reducer I had was from 75-85 degrees and want to get it on there at the right time. Really happy to get that done and in the morning I will shoot the passenger front fender, did not want to push the temperatures this time with doing both.

Also was able to get the seat cover ordered and tall skinny tires for the truck, both should be here first part of the week. Finally seeing this project coming to and end soon. Here is what is left to do.

-install new seat cover
-mount bedside, trim and rear light
-secure bed to frame with new bolts
-paint on front passenger fender, mount trim
-tires mounted
-paint both bumpers and rims ( both are already prepped for paint)

Re: Fix and Sale 72 GMC 3/4 ton 4x4 K2500

Got the bed off of blocks and bolted down to frame again. Got new tires 235/85R16 mounted to the rims and installed. While pulling plugs I bumped the lower heater core hose and it immediately started leaking, so since I only had a few bolts holding on the fender that needs to be painted I dropped the fender down and removed the heater box and core. Then looped the coolant back to manifold so it can still run if needed. I was surprised that it was not full of garbage, pulled the heater core out of the box and the low tube was separated from the core. After inspection I think it is possible to clean up and prep for a re-soldering job. Will give it a try after work today and test for leaks. I did this repair on another truck in the same location on the heater core and it held up well with no leaks.

Things left to do:
-install seat cover when it arrives at end of week
-paint front fender passenger side
-paint rims, front and back bumper and mount
-install trim on bed and re-mount the tailgate and rear lights on drivers side
-try to find some 12" hubcaps for GMC
