Don't know if I missed it....how old is your boy?
I think this is so cool.
That fixes the issue I had with the project.
Personally I look for solid body since I do mechanic work not paint.
He could do something like this.
he'll be 15 on 9-12
Reminds me of this...
One more vote for the red blazer. Re-do that one! LMC will have everything for that one.
cab was delivered today
i knew it was going to be a bare cab, but wasn't expecting to have to change out the hvac ducts
THis is awesome. I already have plans for my son's first car. He is only 2.5 though, and by the time he is ready to drive. All the cars I have been looking at will be too out of date.
Now is the perfect time to paint it. Pop all the fixed glass out, strip out the remaining boots, grommets, and brackets, clean up all the pinch welds, de-ding it, then sand, prime, and paint. No masking required, and no tape edges in the paint or clearcoat.
Looks like a perfect opportunity to add some sound deadening. I had an S-10 when I lived in Texas. Heat and road noise were an issue. Head to Lowes and buy a couple of rolls of Peel and Seal. It's a roof flashing material. Works exactly like Dynomat but it's $14.99 a roll instead of $25 a sq. ft. For $30 you could line most of that cab.
Damn, that is quite a project. My first project car was a 69 Chevelle SS with a big dent in the passenger door and fender. And it needed a full tune up and little stuff. At least I didn't need to R&R the ROOF! Good luck!
Oh, and install a rollcage. S-10s fold up when they get hit.
so the K20 in the line.....
grandpa purchased it brand spanking new in 1980, part of the family
got a bit done to the bed today
corner pushed in and up
corner came unspot welded
this was a pain to get back into place
i did get the cab in the shop so toad can start scuffing the jams
pull pins in place
pulled out and ready for filler, only it was 100+ degree outside and the shop was just as hot, so i went home
damn pull pins kept pulling out leaving a hole, will be filled with some kittyhair
It is an 80? ohh please!!!!
toad finished stripping the cab while i got the bed filled and sanded down,
I need the tools and expertise to do this. One day..
got it in primer lastnight,
bit of mud in the rear bed corners
the back of the bed was a bit of a mess, it probably will never be correct, seems it had been hit in the back of the cab below the rear glass, the cab was pushed in 1/2 of a inch and someone had used butyl tape and silicone to seal it, i pulled the back glass out with just my hands, it's a wonder it didn't fly out going down the road, but i got it pused back into place and some filler in.
some dents in the top edge, either by a forklift or when they botched the back glass repair
