Re: 70 C10 One Piece at a Time

Excited to see how you do! Sadly, those pillars and floor look very typical for most of these trucks. One day and one step at a time!

I have a friend that works in a restoration shop that usually does a couple of these trucks a year, he figures he's done 9 of them. He came over for a look and said it was in much better shape than most of the recent ones he's done so that made me feel better about the amount of metal work it needs.

Job well done, so far!!!
I’m with you, concerning keeping it road worthy, and working on it when possible!!!
My welding skills and yours are similar! Tell me some time what you have your welder settings on, and type of welder, if possible!

Hi Jeff I'm using a Miller 180 Autoset with .023 wire. I had it set for .023 wire and on 20 gauge for most of that but noticed some porosity when grinding the welds so turned it up to 18 gauge for a bit more heat.

Re: 70 C10 One Piece at a Time

Not much progress to report. Pics look about the same as last time but there is a lot more weld and grind filling all the pinholes which are pretty much taken care of now. Been working on planishing the weld joint to get the grinding smoother without thinning the surrounding metal too much. Getting a bit repetitive so will move on to fitting up some of the other repairs.
