Hi everybody! I am getting ready for an 11th season with my employer, while still setting up for some equipment for independent work. Over the past couple years I bought two trucks, a '88 GMC Sierra 3500 pickup and an '84 Chevy C-30 dump. I've spent the past month or so restoring the '88. I bought a '90 Chevy as a parts truck. I needed doors, fenders bumpers trailer hitch etc. I started on the one ton. Special thanks to my friend Carl for helping me figure out that the upper framework was part of the utility body and could just be cut out. Breaking out the sandblaster after cutting away upper metal, sandblasting, wire wheel, grinder, -prepped everything behind the gas tank. I applied three coats of rust neutralizer. I pulled the gas tank and finished prepping the rear frame. I decided to dig in to the front. Here she is when I started. I stripped it out, repaired one wheel well and test-fitted the new fender. I started with the conversion to the later style Chevy grille with composite headlights.-LMAO! These GM's are so friggin' redundant! Everything was there to install a new nose, bolt holes and all. Here is the test fitting- :woot: This is how she looks now- I installed the new doors, no sag, with new pins and bushings. The hood was repainted from white, not perfect but passable. I sandblasted and treated all underneath and repainted the front lower bumper hardware. I installed a rear bumper and trailer hitch. Next is installing new gas tank, new sender and fuel puimp, lines, etc. E-Bay is a great resource for GM parts- scored a Delco fuel pump for $60 shipped. I'll keep the thread updated as progress continues.
