new guy from canada

Post by xtowtruck on May 8th 2012, 9:20 am

Hi there guys and gals. I'm currently in the market for painting my beast and I like to do my own work so I'm interested in learning more about roll on paint jobs.

My truck is a 1984 GMC C35 CC DRW

day I bought it


How it is as of now

One of the cheapest vehicles ever to rebuild. I think you can replace all the typical rusted sheetmatal in the cab with pre-formed parts for under $200, not to mention that a brand new engine is only $2000 out of the box. I had an '86 crew cab but I sold it when the tranny grenaded and I found a deal on my '98 crew cab that I couldn't pass up. Looking good!

Yeah, not much more money and a ton easier. How much of a drop is that? I haven't decided on 2/4 or 4/6 yet, but I'm leaning more to 2/4 since I'll have some hefty weight while hauling.

I had plans on 19.5" steel rims with my '86, thay look awesome on that generation GM trucks

the drop is about 6/4 its all messed up because the rear leafs are not factory and have a bigger arc to them.if i put in factory leafs i could get anoth 2.5-3 easy in the rear.
