  • [Project] K10 Project

    Im past due to start this thread since Ive already gotten a number of things done on this truck so far.

    1st project: distributor cap, rotor, and ignition module. Which I thought it needed due to a rough idle and randomly losing all spark. Turns out... the distributor cap wasnt even secured to the distributor. Oh well, fresh parts are better anyway:

    I should have taken more pictures, but as you can see its still rocking the original delco remy ignition. I used all delco replacement parts.


    2nd project: Phase 1 detailing. Single stage buff with swirl remover and tire shine. Also saddle soaped the interior. Still need to follow up with a polish, coat of wax and some touch-ups.





    3rd project: removed the headache bar. The previous owner put a lot of care into custom making this, so i wish i had a use for it but i think the truck looks better without it. I've been on the fence about the toolbox since its normally not anything id ever buy, but its growing on me... plus theres already holes in the bedrails for it



    More soon!

      Looks great! Toolbox is an eyesore, but it could prove to be handy being a regular cab truck. If it were me, it would come down to what I planned on using the truck for.

      You have the black and red thing going, so worst case if you remove it and there are holes in the bed, I'd just find some black plastic plugs/grommets to seal 'em up.

        Thanks! Yeah there are 4 holes in each side of the bed rail since the box was mounted twice in two spots.... IE the box was installed before the headache bar and when he added the headache bar he drilled new holes in the rail instead of the toolbox (heh.). I could hide them with some new bed rail covers.

        For now im keeping it but its easily removable if i change my mind. Had it out in all of 5 minutes last night to get rid of the headache bar. At least its black and not polished/chrome or it would already be gone too.

                Well i guess i never posted a good picture of it. The idea is you can strap in a ladder or something longer than would normally fit in the bed and it wont hit the roof.

                  I thought they were also to keep cargo from going through the rear window and splittin' your wig in the event of a crash.

                          This truck is even cleaner than imaginable in person. My friends that rolled in, in the GTO, were enamored by it, to say the least. Great find - I'll have to look at it more closely myself next time it's out.
