I don't know yet, haven't thought that far out... ::)

My intention is to clean up everything I have access to, but not lose sight of the goal- to get her back on the road at some point.

Believe it or not, the original paint is not in that bad of shape, so my strategy may be to clean up everything that is not visible to the eye, and let it look like a patina queen.

But when you open the doors, and the hood- BOOOOM!

Thanks for your encouragement! Means alot

So I got some new sneakers for my K10

The 31's I had on it are good enough to run the '80 till she gets a proper fitting.

Found rally wheels, restored them, 8" rear, and 6.5" for the front.

Cleaned up the K10 wheels while at it, and used a more narrow beauty ring. Much better fit.

I went with 33's this time, not stock, but I think that is the proper size for this rig.

Just feels right, AND I pick up another inch of height.  8)
