1962 chevy c10 update.

Just finished blasting and painting the rear frame. I used rustoleum rusty metal primer and semi gloss black. I think it came out good. I do recommend this product for cost cutting. The quarts cost $8.00 each and lay down smooth. The truck is coming together slowly. I also cut out the cab corners and finished putting the engine back together. I had three people stop when I was working on it out side. I also received a ticket for storing my bed in the driveway.

Re: 1962 chevy c10 update.

I know, I live in a new sub division and there is construction everywhere so I didn't think it would matter. So I have to move it into the garage.

Re: 1962 chevy c10 update.

Your truck is looking good

Are you leaving it mostly stock?

I think that is BS getting a ticket for your bed being in the driveway. I am so glad I don't have to worry about things like that around here......not yet anyway.

Re: 1962 chevy c10 update.

Yes I am planning on stock with little modifications. I will change the wheels and put either a 2 or 3 carb setup on it. I want to do something different than what everybody else does. I wanted to put a v8 and auto but everybody in my area has that. I want to do a 60s theme with a hot strait six. I saw an eposode of gears and he did a strait six with three carbs and it looked kick ass. Thanks for the comments. I moved my bed inside last night so I won't get into trouble.

Re: 1962 chevy c10 update.

Replaced the right cab corner. The left one I messed up and need to get another. Does anybody know the best way to remove the front cab mount/ floor brace? Mine is rusted thru.

Re: 1962 chevy c10 update.

Just replaced the right front cab mount. It took longer than expected. It had a bunch of spot welds. Plus it was harder to do upside down. I finally removed and replace it.

Re: 1962 chevy c10 update.

Wow your resto work looks great!
The motor looks like it is totally back from the dead, and your p-side cab corner looks awesome!

Are you doing all this solo, or do you have some help?
I am also guessing this is not your first project piece.....

Re: 1962 chevy c10 update.

I am doing all myself. I did a 66 when I was in high school (1988) that I found in a farmer's field. I have been a Army Mechanic for 22 yrs and I have been watching all the how to shows like Gears, Trucks, Muscle ca and Overhaulin. I have been wanting a project for a long time and came across this truck. Thanks for the shout out!

Re: 1962 chevy c10 update.

Thanks for the complements. I received the inner fender seals so I am going to replace the inner fenders. If I have time I am going to do the other cab corner. I do not want to get in a hurry because last time I did and I messed it up. I am looking for a good right front fender. I started sanding the front and noticed that it is rusty and dented bad in the front.

Re: 1962 chevy c10 update.

Did more work today. I replaced the left rocker panel. It wasn't as bad as I thought. The hardest part was stretching the panel to get a good fit. I still have to grinding and fill the seam to make it look better. I also fitted my front fenders. For some reason they are not lining up right.

Re: 1962 chevy c10 update.

Did more metal work today. Didn't get to finish because the lower part of the right door is rusted thru. So I have to order a patch to finish it.

Re: 1962 chevy c10 update.

looks great- I'm going to have to replace at least the bottom of my door skin eventually- I'm very nervous even thinking about it - your work looks awesome.

Re: 1962 chevy c10 update.

Very impressive progress, your truck is coming along nicely. In my youth I always wanted to build a 6 cylinder engine with a 4 barrel and headers, but it never worked out that way. Triple carbs have always provided a better wow factor though. I wish I had your sheet metal skills. Keep up the good work!

Re: 1962 chevy c10 update.

Thanks,
One day I will having look as good as yours. I have been a mechanic in the Army for 22 yrs and just started to get into the body work. While I was in Germany I watched all the how to car shows and learned a little. I wish I were better.This was the first time I did a door skin. It came out ok but it is a 1/4 in off from the left door. How much does the door seal stick out from the sill plate on the bottom? The bottom door is knocked in a little because it was sticking way out. I need to do some more hammering and filling to get the door better. If I didn't have to replace the lower door I think it would have come out better. This is the hardest part of the build so far. Getting the doors right.
