Hello from Germany
« on: February 12, 2019, 11:59:22 AM »
Hello, my name is Martin. I am 40 years old and from Hamburg in Germany. Ive bought a Chevy C20 in November and i hope i can fix up this Chevy bit by bit. I think the substance is well.
Its build year is 1979, comes from Oregon and i am the third owner.
My english is upgradable but i think i can learn here a lot of and find help if i need some tips.
Ive replaced the carburator and the battery  till yet ( Now Edelbrock 600 ccm ) and currently i dismantle the radiator and it will be refurbished.

If what we see from the pic you posted it looks like you don't have much to improve on.

Yes, a lot to do is not.The Chevy is converted and licensed. The Engine runs great with the new carburettor , the battery holder is top too now. The radiator is in work. After this i need a new carpet or rubber mat and some work at the gauges. I hope thats all for the first time and i can enjoy the summer.

She doesn't need much work.  That's one of the more unusual exterior color combinations.  Nice truck.
If you still have the original Rochester Quadrajet Carburetor I would suggest that you hang onto it.  The Edelbrock carbs are less reliable than the original Rochester.  You may eventually want to have it re-worked and re-install it.

I'm just the opposite.  That blue is gorgeous.
It'd be a boring world if everyone liked the same things.   Again nice truck...
