Re: 1980 C-10 Low buck build.

More progress. Got a lot of dents out and smoothed out some rough areas.



Fauxtina idea! Just a spray over to get the feel for a fauxtina, totally doing it!


Polished passenger side

Unpolished driver










So there she is how she sits now.

Re: 1980 C-10 Low buck build.

drop hangers and three leafs removed


tossed the bed on


cut a coil off. springs have 2 coils cut off (previos owner removed one, it hasnt touched the road since 94 judging by the 94 tabs and new 95 tab that came with it, so they were still pretty tall


taped the cab band on just for kicks

Re: 1980 C-10 Low buck build.

12 hours of work and we might have gotten 4 hours of work done

time to patch up the other side. kinda tricky for people with no sheetmetal experience


and fill the fuel door


redid the drivers side. when the punch a hole for the fuel door it pushed the whole thing in so we cut a larger hole and patched it

Re: 1980 C-10 Low buck build.

after the ferry ride and picking up the 250


on the way back and not going through seattle because it is home to the nastiest potholes i have ever seen adn with the engine in the bed im not far from hitting the frame


waiting for the other ferry and trying not to drop my camera in the water



on the ferry and getting ready to get off


got her home adn she bleading oil out the rear


thats water under the wrench from cyclinder 2

Re: 1980 C-10 Low buck build.

I was thinking about doing a custom exhaust with a 3inch single pipe coming out each side infront of the rear tires on my 80. I thought it would look cool with my 250 lol but I dont know yet. What are your plans with the inline?
