Re: Mesquite 1966 C10 - LS3 W/Air Ride

Dear Santa...

Just wow, this is an awesome, awesome build. Very well thought out and very quick progress as a bonus! You will have one extremely nice driving truck when it's finished! I haven't seen an official paint scheme yet, so I'll cast my vote for the original yellow/white colors. There's not many trucks around with that color combo so it would be different and stand out, while retaining a bit if the classic/original look. Cant wait to see it finished!

Still working on the paint scheme, I really like the gray in the wheels, but yellow always catches your eye

Re: Mesquite 1966 C10 - LS3 W/Air Ride

Had to back track some today. One of the front wheels center bore was completely wrong would not even slide onto hub???? Ordered a replacement so won't be back on the ground for another week.

I mounted the engine last night, the original motor mounts were located in the back two holes, the cpp mounts fit perfect in the front two holes and the hole in the cross member, the instructions said nothing about which holes to use, so I used the front two "WRONG".

Took the enging back out had to drill a hole in the cross member for the lower bolt then replaced the engine.

FYI original oil pan works just fine when mounted in the CORRECT location....yes now I'm the proud owner of a muscle car oil pan that I don't need

Re: Mesquite 1966 C10 - LS3 W/Air Ride

Notice the string that is strung between the two cab mounting holes. Using this string line I can closely estimate the shifter location in the cab.

Re: Mesquite 1966 C10 - LS3 W/Air Ride

I think the WD-40 can is close to the most forward shifting location. I think the middle location whould be located close to the exising shifter shown below.
