Michigan Rust Truck
« on: August 23, 2023, 01:33:00 PM »
This is my 86 K10 Michigan rust bucket. It still had the original front clip when I bought it, or should I say what was left it.  I took it down to the frame in my garage, the frame got sprayed with Zero Rust, new stainless fuel and brake lines, poly dual tanks, all sitting on rebuilt 10 bolt axles that received new bearings, Eaton Truetracs, Yukon Gear 4.11 gears, a 2" lift with Cooper STT Pro 35x12.15 tires on stock wheels.
I rebuilt 350 with Edelbrock E-Street heads, mild cam, Holley Sniper, rebuilt 700R4 and NP208

I'm currenting planning spraying the bed with Raptor bed line and working on custom building a set of custom steps. Then I need to find a dash pad and work on the interior.
