Re: 1968 C10 Stepside Restoration Project

very nice. I took a real liking to the raptor liner...I sprayed the insides of my bumpers with it. Coated the fender emblems with it...as well as the bed. very versatile stuff.

Really good progress. If I didn't know, I'd guess that you had been through this kind of work before. You seem matter of fact, and methodical, and the truck is coming together nicely.

Re: 1968 C10 Stepside Restoration Project

LT7A, Thanks for the complement but I have only restored a couple MGs and a few motorcycles, nothing to the scale of this truck. I never had to weld like I have on the C10, or use a spray-on bed liner. I have literally watched endless how-tproject. and read through endless posts on this forum, learning all I can so I could work towards completing this project.

After the truck is done, I have a classic Mini to restore, and it is worse off than the truck!

I would like to see a couple pics of that Mini.

The Mini is just a body shell at the moment. I actually started that project before the truck. Because this truck belonged to my wife's late father, she wanted me to drop the Mini and start on the truck. I will look for some photos of the Mini when it was delivered and some of the progress I made on it. After closer inspection it was apparent that it had been wrecked and was poorly repaired.
