Re: [Project] 85 K10

and this is my bosses truck, my boss is 73 and i am 20, and we have pretty much the same tast in cars. his daily is a 95 rcsb z71, my daily is a 98 rcsb z71

the truck that inspired me to build this: same year, same options, same color. his has a black interior though. he bought it like this back in march, it now has a factory hood on it





i have these same valve covers and air cleaner waiting to go on my truck



he wants a tailgate without the aluminum trim in the middle. so he bought a new smooth one. i will paint it for him and then i will have the tailgate thats on his truck for free.

and note that the chevrolet is on the left side of the gate. how many of those have you ever seen?

Re: [Project] 85 K10

That thing is sweet, Mine is a lot more rough than that but I hop it turns out as good. I am trying to resurrect the impossible, a rusted k20.

Awesome, I am speechless.
