Trying to get a bit more acclimated here. It is still a work in progress with more than I can even list left to do, but here is my labor of love. '73 G10. The list of things that are new or that I have done is also more than I can list......but she's actually running and on the road. At least for now.

Man, that is sweet! I'd love to hear more about it and see more photos. Engine, interior, etc. That's pretty much my favorite model!

Looking good, more pics!


You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants and tacky tigers
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave

Brakes: New rear shoes and drums, new front rotors, new calipers and pads, new master cylinder, new hard and flex brake lines.

Tires/wheels: New 17 x 7 and 18 x 8 Cragar SS with knockoff spinners, BFG tires

Dash: NOS in-the-box dash, custom-coated with tan finish. Self-made custom polished and clear powder coated aluminum inserts, new digital AC/Heat system with new ducting and vents, new steering wheel, new levers, new drive dial indicator with custom LED light. Dog house is in work to re-shape, wrap, and install access door and stainless drink holders.

Electronics: New Dakota Digital instrument cluster, custom climate control panel, new Painless Wiring harness with all new wiring to all components, new ignition switch.

Body: Rear frameless sunroof, pop-out factory tinted rear windows, shaved running lights, shaved antenna, smoked taillights with blue dots, LED headlights, clear turn signal lenses, LED bulbs, Sears NOS amber fog lights, New windshield and rubber, replaced vent windows and frame, complete orange LED strips on frame rails, old-school custom trailer hitch with new powder-coating, new mirrors. majority of body panels have been filled, sanded, smoothed, and sealed.

Interior: Rattle-Trap sound deadner installed on walls, roof, floor, and interior of doors. 1/2" foam insulation and 3/4" plywood floor installed, full leather two-tone reclining captains chairs with electronic lumbar support, new swivel pedestal bases. All weatherstripping has been stripped from doors and everything has been sanded or sandblasted, and primed.


I have a bunch of other parts on shelves and in crates that I am waiting to install when appropriate, like new door handles and locks, additional sunroof for the cab area, new shoulder harness seat belts, wiper arms and blades, window felt, weatherstripping and seals for all windows and doors, etc.

I am currently in the interior "design phase" as well as researching and talking to paint and body contacts, as there is plenty of work that is needed.
