« on: July 27, 2021, 10:17:34 PM »
I had another build (79 C10 swb) I posted here. That ones almost done; Iíve since started building an 84 K5 for my son. I like seeing pictures of other builds so I figured some people might want to see pics of this build. Itís not done but getting there.

Here I replaced the pans and cut out the rotted parts of the rockers, the interior panels of the rockers also had to be replaced.

Passenger quarter had damage as well, no rust though. Just takes time getting the panel right, not a pro by any means but seem to be getting by.

Felt pretty good by hand so I primered the repaired area. Gonna do a final block sand on the whole thing before I take it to the painter.

This was the worst, rot on the lower corners of both sides of the windshield channel.

Had to cut pieces of the rotted window channel out and replace each piece, so as not to lose the over all form, this took time.
