College restoration. My 71 c10

Hello, I have been working on my 71 for over a year now. I have recently decided to post my progress. When I got the truck it didn't run and had a lot of rust. During the course of a summer I cut out and replaced all rusted sheet metal on the cab. Had the frame sandblasted and powder coated. Installed a 4/6 ECE drop kit. Recently I have been installing an Ls LY6.
