You can buy a decal to replace the GMC one. Here is a link to one from Classic Parts.

Replacing the old/rusted running board mounts onto the old/rusted running boards.
They should stay on the truck a bit longer now.

Cleaned the head gasket residue from the deck of my "to replace my '52 GMC 228 someday" GMC 302 with 0.020" overbore. Looks like someone used Copper Coat to seal the gasket on both sides. After scraping the gasket material I had to use solvent and a ScotchBrite pad to remove the copper color.

Installed the last of three "rubber" brake lines, this one for the rear brake junction block , then bled the brakes manually. Man, I wish I'd known about the clear hose , submersion in a bottle method years ago. Its was so very easy and accomplished without any assistant .

The ‘62 C-10 is going to Paint and Body in a couple of weeks so I thought I would order some jewelry to celebrate the return. Chrome front and rear bumpers and all the hardware will be coming from Lenexa, Kansas. Still looking for chrome grill and headlight bezels. They seem to be readily available for ‘63-66 but not ‘62. We have a couple of chrome plating shops in OKC so that is an option.

I drove it to the bank and back home. I changed lane and the engine did a hiccup then ran fine for the next hour.

Tested out the new shocks and rebuilt carb with a 30 mile drive with four stops. No stalls, no hard restarts, and doesn't shake all over the place when you hit potholes and speed humps.

Parked well away from everybody at the grocery store. Wouldn't want anything to happen to that high dollar paint job.

Put the ‘62 C-10 up on the lift and soaked the bumper mounting bolts with PB Blaster. Oldest Grandson is coming over early tomorrow morning to supply some muscle for removing the bumpers. I think I can get to all the bolts with my 1/2” impact gun so it should go easily. Yeah I know, I just jinxed myself.

Checked all the fluids in the trans / OD section, rear end. Greased everything good and had to replace the crappy “standard” brand high beam switch that fell apart. I been doing a couple 100 mile round trips per week with it for work. We used it as a centerpiece at my kiddos first birthday party today. I sure was happy to have AC on the way home. My legs were numb by the time I got home.
