1969 c10 long to short little to big

So, I sold my 71 suburban to buy my 69 c10 lwb truck. i got it really cheap. i thought it would be awsome to build a nice running little 327 afr heads big cam the whole deal. well i built the motor and didnt like it so it sat for a year, i have been reading lfd's low buck build and let me tell you that guy opened my eyes to a whole new world. i decided to make it a short bed, and drop a 6.0, 4l60 trans out of a 04 h2.

Lightbulb Re: 1969 c10 long to short little to big

here we go, i started by leveling the truck on stands, tires are off to make it a little lower. just like low buck i layed out my lines 8-3/4 than 8" layed my tape and cut. so far so good. ill prolly cut the front later even though i does kinda look different with the bobbed rear. but ill be posting pics of my progress its gonna be slow, money comes slow lol. weekends are the only time i can really work on it.

Re: 1969 c10 long to short little to big

i tried a different method on connecting the 2 panels together. i didnt hacve panel clips so what i did was cut a 3" section off the 8" cut piece. i drilled holes and used self tappers to hold it. by doing this, when you put them together all the body lines line up.its more work but it was an experiment.

Re: 1969 c10 long to short little to big

Nice project, you did a great job on the bed! The rust looks very familiar, just like mine. I though you Arizona guys got all the nice rust free ones. Keep up the work looks great so far!
