Next, work began on the bed. We had it media blasted and stripped of all old paint, rust, and body filler. Like most old cars and trucks, the paint was hiding a variety of previous rust and crash repairs. The floor was completely missing.



The rusty and dented corners were the first areas to receive some repairs.

The side trim holes were welded closed, and we intended to reinstall stock trim back on the truck, so these needed to be repaired, re-welded, and drilled.



The old rear bedside support bracket mounts had failed, so they were removed and replaced.

There were many rusty areas on the frame as well, as evidenced by the expanded body mount holes.



The bottoms of the doors were thin from rust, so our crew installed repair panels across the bottoms of the doors.







New inner bedsides were installed to replace the rusty originals.





New cab mounts were fabricated and installed on the frame.



Extensive metal work was performed on the outer bedsides to install new wheel opening repair panels.










Meanwhile, more parts were media blasted and shot with epoxy primer.

A “C” notch was installed in the rear frame rails to provide a lower right height for the truck.

We chose to install a GM 6.2 L92 aluminum V-8 in our C 10. This engine was originally installed in a Cadillac Escalade, and only had around 60,000 miles. Upon its arrival, our shop crew disassembled the engine to examine it for unusual wear.







Everything looked good, so our crew installed a Mast Motorsports camshaft and reassembled the engine. Soon, we will install different engine accessories and detail this engine.

The chassis was painted with black epoxy primer, then given several coats of an industrial Imron enamel.



We chose to use a satin black finish, which is a theme on this truck.



Once the paint has cured, the crew installed all new suspension and brake components, as well as new steering parts.





The rear axle assembly was rebuilt, and it was also installed, making the chassis a roller again.

The new fuel tank is installed in the rear of the frame. The filler will be accessed through the bed, but we’ll show more on that later.





The aluminum radiator and dual electric fans are attached to the core support up front.





At this point, the bed was test fitted to the chassis. These have a wood floor, and our customer wanted to finish so bed wood himself, so we had a mock up steel frame to simulate the bed floor.








This frame allowed us to install the bed on the chassis for mock up purposes.
