OUR 1965 CHEVY C10 project truck, project Raven, is really starting to take a turn toward completion. We are super excited to see this truck hit the road, and you get to sit in the front row during the whole build process.
In the last issue, we broke down this entire project part by part and let you know our budgets and path the success. Now it is time to get to work. The first task on the list is to remove the bed and clean the rear frame rails. We are swapping the suspension and brakes so all that has to go. The factory fuel cell sits inside the cab and we can’t possibly think of a worse place for it. So, while we are back there, we will install a new fuel cell from Performance Online. These lightweight aluminum gas tanks are designed to fit between the frame rail and rearward of the axle on Chevy and GMC trucks. By moving the fuel tank out of the cab, you gain much needed room to allow for further customization and increase fuel capacity and safety. Made of heavy gauge aluminum, these gas tanks offer a lightweight design and are fully baffled. These kits include the fuel tank, mounting straps, fuel hose, clamps, sending unit and fuel cap.
Once the tank is installed, we will coat the framerails with bed coating and start bolting on the new Classic Performance Products coilover suspension. This is one of those projects that starts slow but ramps up really quickly. If you’re not following us on our social media channels, I promise you are missing out. Jump online, give us a follow and keep up to date with this exciting build! Now back to the grind!
