I'm a 20 year old college kid. This is my first project like this. I came home from class one day and decided to look on Craigslist for an old truck. Within a few minutes, I found a 62 Chevy C10 a few miles from my house. That weekend we went and looked at the truck. By we, I mean my mom, her boyfriend Dave, and my Uncle David. The truck looked pretty decent and ran pretty well too. With input from other HAMBers, I decided to buy the truck. The PO was asking 2300, but I talked him down to 2200. I know, not a big price difference, but it was what he bought it for plus what he had put into it. He redid the brake drums, put in all new brake lines, got a new exhaust, new tires, new front and rear driver's side fender. My goal with the project is to do as much of the work with just me and Dave. It seems like a daunting task, but I'm looking forward to the experience learned and satisfaction gained by the end. That said, the first task is to get this bad girl safely and legally driveable. That means replacing the floor panels, rocker panels, front and rear cab brackets, front windshield, and getting the lights wired and functional. Last weekend, my mom graciously gave up her side of the garage. Dave and I quickly moved in his welder, a couple of saw horses, a work bench, lighting and heating system, and a tool chest. We also removed the driver's door which needs work and the new front driver's side fender. In order to move the tool chest over, we had to pull the truck out. I then had to "strongly" convince Dave to take it out for a spin. We got half way down our steep cul de sac before the hood began to slowly creep, then fly, all the way up. Getting the hood down, the engine cut out. Started it, stopped again. Did this several times before we realized the truck was out of gas! There was no way we were going to be able to push it back up the hill. Instead of waiting to get gas, Dave pushed the truck up to my mom's. With a few scratches from his license plate on the bumper, we made it back safely. What a fun ride it was while it lasted. This weekend, a big box came from LMC! Can't wait to open it when Dave gets here. Also, we picked up the rocker panels last weekend from Summit Racing. Really cuts down on shipping that way. Forgot to mention that the previous owner gave us the inner rockers too This weekend should be filled with lots of welding with Dave's new welder. After trying some nearby shops for welding gas with no sucess (out of business) we called a supplier a little farter away. None other than our next door neighbor answered the phone. He got us what we needed with a little employee discount as well. Sure was nice of him!!
