65 C10 bagged and turbo 5.3 Ls - Build

Finally joined here and figured I'd put the current build up.

1965 C10 long bed
w/ PB stage 3 front drop member, 3" drop spindles, Michigan Metalwork's flat control arms, Dominator 2600 bags, Shaved dash, firewall, and pinch welds, 22" transports, CPP drilled/slotted

Currently working on:

We were going the wishbone 3-link route for the rear. Decided to change it up and go triangulated 4-link.

Ordering parts to build the cast 5.3 LS motor and 4l80e up to handle a good amount of boost. Planning to run a big single s480+-

Welcome to the forum!

Looks like its off to a good start. Who's valve cover adapters did you use on the LS?

Same here, for a short time I had owned a matching 66 c10. Driveway looked good.

The intake is an ICT Billet intake, picked up due to being cheaper then the Holley sniper.

Finished up reworking the suspension. Currently I have the frame stripped down, and sending parts off to powder coat.

How do you like the Michigan metalwork arms? I asked about them while back as a cheap option and only heard bad reviews about the company. Project looks great

I like them, was kind of skeptic on strength at first but these things are built thick man.

Re: 65 C10 bagged and turbo 5.3 Ls - Build

Maybe yall can help me out.

The Frame will be coated Por-15 black but having a hard time deciding on which color to go with for powder coating.
Going to do the front cross member, A-arms, Shock mounts, Motor mounts, Trans cross member, Rear 4-link bars.

Open to suggestions

Re: 65 C10 bagged and turbo 5.3 Ls - Build

silvers or grays go with the engine color pretty well

I agree with "bentbolt" grays and silvers will go well with the motor colour and then give you some contrast from he black frame. personally i would do a dark gray like a graphite or charcoal gray.

Thanks yall, I was thinking the same thing. Going with a charcoal or graphite with a little metallic to give it a slight pop from the frame but not to much.

Re: 65 C10 bagged and turbo 5.3 Ls - Build

Finished painting the frame last week. Also picked the stuff up from powdercoat over the weekend. Decided to change it up last second, and went with a bronze. Camera doesn't do this color justice

Re: 65 C10 bagged and turbo 5.3 Ls - Build

Looks good. I think the hardest part of my build is deciding color and what part gets what color. I've got a big bag of titanium bronze powder that I once had decided on and now I've changed my mind. So frustrating LOL
