Thank you 30772, you in Montana? IF so where?
The seats were originally an aftermarket seat from a company like shop4seats.com I think. I cut them up. Shortened them and built a custom seat mount. I also cut the head rests in half.
In this picture you can see how tall the seat and headrest sit in relation to the back window. This was on the shortened seat mounts.

Re: Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

Hey guys I have been moving along slowly with the truck. I have received my seats and console. Now waiting on the amplifier board and speaker box so I can wire the stereo and then on to finish up the door panels.

I did get the tool box doors on and adjusted. Just need to cut and buff the bed and tailgate.
More pictures up soon.

Re: Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

Well my painter has been working on the bed sides. he was able to get them cut and buffed. Check out the pictures. One even looks like it has white dust on the lower portion but its just the reflection of the ground.
Cant wait to get the bed complete and get the wheels on it!!!
Happy New Year All!!!
I will post a video my son shot while I was moving the truck back into the shop!!!

Re: Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

Thank you guys!
Its been a long time coming and I cant wait to get it to 100%.
I was able to get the LED taillights (purchased from Robznob) and side marker lights installed. See video.

LED video

I was also getting my NOS taillight trim that I purchased from a forum member out and had to order new trim clips as I was missing some. I will use the OEM ones but just don't have enough.

Next is the tool box cover.

Re: Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

Hey guys so I am waiting on a few items for the bed so I thought I would start working on the interior. With the carpet kit I ordered I wanted to put holes in it without allowing the carpet to unravel so I used some 3/8" steel brake line. Heated it up with my torch. I used my all to mark the hole location and melted the carpet with the tubing. Worked pretty good. This particular hole is for my stereo amplifier board under my seats.

Also thank you guys for all the comments! I appreciate you guys checking out my build....Keeps me motivated!

Re: Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

That’s exactly how I did mine, stainless tubing and a propane torch. Makes for perfect holes.
Nice work!

Re: Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

I made a few new bedside fender supports out of stainless steel and went ahead and polished them up. Since the front of the bed is not as sturdy after the Fall Guy Doors install. I figured adding the supports would help a bunch. Now the bed sides are solid as a rock.

Re: Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

Hey guys I have a question.
Do you see any reason I cant put in the seat belt retractors behind the seat rather than on the sides of it?

See first and last picture I pulled from the site. The black seat photo is to show where it is supposed to be I guess versus where I want to put them. the blue seat picture is a stock seat belt.

I just have them mocked up and will probably install the seat just to see if they work.

Any reason this wont work or pose a problem?

Been a little while since I checked in. Got hit with Covid pretty hard. Looking great as usual. Keep it up. Like you said, spring is just around the corner.

Re: Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

2 day turn around for my speaker box and some panel pieces to get covered WOW!
I decided to take the hood C H E V R O L E T lettering and add it to the speaker box filler panel that goes between the window and the top of the box.
With the center counsel arm rest down you will see the CHEVROLET between the seats.
He also covered my interior sun visors. They look and feel great. I do have to order some interior paint to match the saddle color leather.
The last picture is how the box will look in the truck....

Re: Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

More progress, nice! Sub box looks good! Used to do custom install myself in the past and I am looking forward to doing a box for my truck. The lettering is a nice touch. Is the V going to be covered by something or is that a typo? Want shoulder belts myself. Been thinking about that kit. Not understanding the offset mounting with one bolt for the retractor. Does not seem as strong as factory.

Thanks Richard. The missing V in my post was a typo. At first I was like did I spell it incorrectly or forget to install a letter hahaha!!!! The offset bracket came with the kit from a forum member Tom(he has the kit for sale in the classified section. They are really nice). The bracket is supposed to offset forward but they stick out forward more then I like. I guess the flip of the bracket may be an issue with leverage during and accident. I will have to think about it thank you!
Building the box was fun as I too used to install custom stereos back in the day!!

Thank you 72T. Now I am working on custom corner panels to hide the retractors and install a set of component speakers in.
