Well I havent been posting cause my computer is down and I have been using my cell phone...well I'm using flickr to post pics from it and for some reason i can't copy and paste the html anymore. it wont let me select the text?? so...Here is an update. I got most of the truck primered and the body work done. I also picked up a rear roll pan thanks to the guys in OKC at MAR-K truck parts. Here are some pics!! enjoy!

Re: My 85 chevy c10 build

Is that roll pan bolted in or welded in? Your truck looks nice man.

Talking Re: My 85 chevy c10 build

thank you guys...Hey max that pan is just bolted on...you have the option of welding it when you get it but i just bolted it in...it lined up pretty well and it was a pretty good deal for 130$ i actually just sanded the driver side bed which is my straighest piece of body on it at the moment and i was extremely bored so i sprayed it with some white paint..it is paint we had bought for a honda civic me and my dad fixed.. then i sprayed a few clear coats to see what it would look like. I think i am going to do a white and blue two tone!! heres a pic of this. lol im sure your not supposed to paint section by section but i was bored with the primer... : )

Re: My 85 chevy c10 build

I check out craigslist about just as often. Haha. They are just the first semi-ok 5x5 wheels I've seen in a while. I kinda see where you're coming from on not having a big enough lip. And they are kind of still the same 5 spoke wheel style that almost everyone else has. I know I want to get away from the normal when I get to the point of wheels.

Re: My 85 chevy c10 build

I thought they were pretty sweet but I didn't really know if the fit in your budget or not.
My truck was fine. There was almost no damage at my house, mainly just a couple of small limbs that fell down. Did you or your family receive any damage?
