Cecil the 1953 5 window / S-10 / 5.7 TPI

First of all I am new to this forum. So here is a little background, I was given my step dads 53 five window (Cecil) a few years ago to eventually give to my son when he is old enough. My stepdad bought this when he turned 16 in 1975 and it is really good condition. After some study I decided that I would turn this into a rusto mod, complete with a 85 S-10 undercarriage. For most is not all of this, I have contacted SKYMANGS and he will do transformation since I didn't have a lot of time (or expertise) to get this wrapped up because I wanted my mom to see this vehicle before she eventually lost the battle to ALS. Unfortunately that didn't happen, but now I want my step-dad to see his old truck, drive it and help him cope with mom's passing.

Re: Cecil the 1953 5 window / S-10 / 5.7 TPI

Now the plan is to do a Rusto Mod on a 83 S-10 that I have and transplant a 5.7 TPI that came from my 1987 IROC-Z that I purchased new but was unfortunately totaled a mere 9 months later. (That's a story for a different thread)

Re: Cecil the 1953 5 window / S-10 / 5.7 TPI

One thing I can do is disassemble. Not the best at reassembling but I can take things apart. So I set out to remove Cecil from his frame and then start the process of removing the 40 year old white paint.

Re: Cecil the 1953 5 window / S-10 / 5.7 TPI

The donor S-10 is a drivable 85 that I picked up on CL. Unfortunately this one doesn't have a 700r so I will have to use another CL find. My goal is to drop this vehicle to about an overall stance of 6'4 or so. Chris is going to install drop spindles and lowering blocks in the back. The tire wheel combo is Ridler 695 (18x8 and 20x10) with meaty Kumo Tires (255/55/18 front 275/55/20back) I prefer more sidewall but this may not allow me to get the overall height I want, we will see.

Re: Cecil the 1953 5 window / S-10 / 5.7 TPI

Cecil was the name he was given by my Step Dad in 75, so it will stick. Will try to get some more photos up this weekend. I am hopeful to be mostly thru the "rusto" process. Here's a sneak peak at one of the fenders completed so far.

Re: Cecil the 1953 5 window / S-10 / 5.7 TPI

Has the tpi been sitting since 87? Looks like a pretty cool build so far!

Re: Cecil the 1953 5 window / S-10 / 5.7 TPI

Yes the TPI has been in my dads shop since about 1990. It is not locked up, and I have been PB blasting the cylinders the last few weeks and turning them every few days. Per some fellow forum members I picked up the Wiring Harness and ECM from http://www.larryselectricsite.com/index.html

Oldman3 I am hopeful to have the truck at Ole Sarge's (SKYMANGS) shop in October. He is working on a 32 roadster now, then another S-10 swap before he can start on mine.

I spent some time hunting Turkey up in the West Plains area back in the 80s. My uncle Willard Sparks (Sparks Farms) used to own the Doan's Ranch.

Re: Cecil the 1953 5 window / S-10 / 5.7 TPI

Did some priming and painting this weekend on the hood and the bed. Both of these had been stripped before and there was little in any of the Ocean Green left. I laid a black primer and then about 2-3 coats of Ocean Green. I will then hit the Green with fine/medium grit and age it back to the patina the Cab has.

Re: Cecil the 1953 5 window / S-10 / 5.7 TPI

I have had a couple PMs about the tire wheel combos. I went with Ridler 695 and Kumho ecsta packagae. As I stated I wanted more sidewall and was willing to give up and inch or so of height to get the meatier look I was going for. I am pretty sure that we are going to have to mini tub the bed and hopefully we wont have any issues up front we will see.

Re: Cecil the 1953 5 window / S-10 / 5.7 TPI

Those wheels are great. I can't wait to see what they look like on the truck. Just the other day I was looking at tires and thinking how I wanted an 18 inch rim but didn't want a rubber band tire.

Re: Cecil the 1953 5 window / S-10 / 5.7 TPI

Ok the push is on to get most of the body work finished up before Cecil goes to SKYMANGS on 10-12-14. I have finished up all the fenders, the bed, the hood only thing left is the Cab.

Re: Cecil the 1953 5 window / S-10 / 5.7 TPI

Here are the pictures of the "aging" process on the bed and hood. Only thing left to do is seal the patina in with Penetrol.

I completely stripped/sandblasted the parts that I wanted to age. Flat Black Primer then painted them. After it dried for a few days I then sanded the entire part with mixture of coarse, medium and fine grit sanding disk on my orbital to give the pain the weathered look.

To make the rust you first need to completely sand any spot you want to rust to bare metal. Then you mix up a spray bottle with these ingredients.

16 oz Hydrogen Peroxide (fresh bottle un open is best)
2 oz white vinegar
1/2 Tbsp of Salt

lightly spray the bare metal and rust will form almost immediately. Let this dry then repeat. The more time you repeat the process it the darker it will be. You can also use a small propane torch to speed up the drying process.

After the rust has dried for about 24 hours, take fresh small paint brush and gently remove any extremely loose rust pieces. I use leaf blower to blow the loose particles away. Be careful because most of the rust will wipe away at this point.

After you removed the loose particles you need to treat and seal the rust with Pentrol. You can buy this at Lowes or Home Depot in the paint department. This will adhere it surface.

Lastly you should clear the patina with a satin or gloss clear. I am going to do that in about a year.

It is not as difficult as this sounds, but it does take a little time sanding.

Re: Cecil the 1953 5 window / S-10 / 5.7 TPI

Thank you for that info. I have some patch work to do on my 49 but was avoiding it due to not being able to keep the patina.

Re: Cecil the 1953 5 window / S-10 / 5.7 TPI

Glad to help. There is some patch work on the cab that Chris (SKYMANGS) will be doing when does the S-10 swap next month. After he is finished I will age the new sheet metal the same way. I am going to wait about year before I satin clear just to give it some time to weather a little.

Re: Cecil the 1953 5 window / S-10 / 5.7 TPI

I am the same way, I fixed up the bed sides and they are just in grey primer. I wanted to get it to match the patina and I think this will be the best way to try!!

Re: Cecil the 1953 5 window / S-10 / 5.7 TPI

So I have about 99% of the old white paint removed from the cab. As you can see there isn't much of the factory Ocean Green left except on the doors. So the plan is to flat black prime and re paint every thing except for the doors. Then go through the aging process so the cab matches the bed and hood.

Re: Cecil the 1953 5 window / S-10 / 5.7 TPI

Pulled the gauges and all in all they are not in that bad shape. We are going to do a little refurb and retrofitting of new gauges into the cluster. We are going to have to use a converter to make the VSS on the 700r work any suggestions?
