Michael's Truck Restoration Project


This is my 1987 Chevy R10 Shortbed Truck that I purchased in Nov. 2002. When I bought it there was three shades of blue and a white tailgate. I have sanded the rust from the bed area and the body and primed the entire truck. Also, I have Bond-Oed two areas by the doors and the roof. The body was in generally good condition despite the paint job and rust around the bed. I have made minor improvements, such as fixing the horn, sliding glass window lock, cargo light cover, painting the grill and side mirrors, but much more is needed. Recently I have gotten the exhaust system repaired, replaced the distributor cap and rotor, spark plug wires, new battery, basically things you have to do regularly.
