BIG updates
I need to grab pics this week or today. But i got the junk bed pulled off and started cleaning the frame and its in perfect shape it needs the bumper brackets repaired some but overall the frame has no pitting or anything. I bought a gallon can of rustolem low gloss black heavy duty farm paint for the frame i should be able to get one or two coats brushing it on and anything hidden will be that color mechanically everything looks very solid underneath the font cab supports are really bad and it needs rockers otherwise the rest of the truck is in good shape i have doors and am looking for a pair of fenders and a new grille

yea its gonna be rustolem black for now until the trucks body is perfect and the drivetrain is perfect. I now how the cab pulled off and on a trailer and the chassis just has the running gear and motor and its pushed outside of the shop and my buddies 74 c20 is pulled in because he managed to snap BOTH leaf springs in the back and blew an axle seal like how do you even do that 😂

Just a thought, if you’re painting the truck on the cheap for the time, maybe look into the farm or construction dealers for gloss black paint. They sell acrylic enamel rather than alkyd and the price difference isn’t bad at all. Alkyd enamels can’t be painted over with anything else because they off gas for their entire lives, while acrylic paints don’t. The acrylic paint could almost be permanent if you wanted it too, it’s pretty much what these trucks got back in the 70s. Except the painter probably had an afro or mullet. Lol

I have to say that you're quite brave to drive er home, I'd be terrified of getting pulled over and nailed for no insurance but that's just me! Lol.

Need trim? I have the 2 tone body moldings in decent shape and the trim that runs along the back of the cab and wraps up the sides, the side cab bits are Silverado badged but I might also have Silverado fender badges as well
