Day 1: Countdown Begins

The first day was off to a great start as the crew transformed the long bed into a shorty. They prepared the 1970 C10 for its all new CPP steering, brakes and suspension, and even made way for the LS7 drivetrain.

With the passing of day two, we now have functioning front and rear suspension. That includes CPP Big Brakes, shocks, sway bars and panhard bar along with a fresh rearend. Now, the team has to plumb the C20/C10 conversion with fuel delivery and HydraStop hydraulic assist system.

Day 3: Drivetrain Wrap Up And New Wheels

The 427 LS drivetrain is planted, now time to tie in the complete chassis wiring harness, configure computer control modules, and connect the fuel supply system. 18” American Legend Wheels and Falken tires arrive with hopes of getting the truck ready to roll.

Day 4: Cabin, Cooling, and Wiring

The clock ticks away as the crew installs the radiator, air intake, and driveshaft on the Week To Wicked 1970 C10. Then the chassis wiring harness got it’s final connections. New interior makes it’s way into the cabin, but there’s plenty more left on the plate after Day four.

Day 5: Dialing In The Details on the Week To Wicked 1970 C10

Day Five is filled with bleeding the brakes, installing gauges and steering column. Then the 18″ American Legend Wheels were torqued, fuel tank topped, hood hinged, and short-bed bolted on. The keys are ready to turn, and tires ready to burn on this Wicked 1970 C10!
