    Default Goodguys 2015 Giveaway C10 by Scott's Hotrods

    Scott's Hotrods is pleased to announce the official build for the Goodguys 2015 giveaway C-10.

    We have had a great relationship with Goodguys over the last 15 years. We have had the opportunity to build a handful of giveaway cars in the past, but unfortunately the timing was never quite right to do one for Goodguys. I'm very excited that we are doing this one. Great truck, and great timing.

    We are determined to make this the best C-10 we've built to date.

    Goodguys has already done a lot of the hard work in determining the look, having the rendering done, and aquiring a lot of the hard parts. Our job will be to execute the plan and rebuild this truck form top to bottom. There is not a piece or panel on this truck that will go untouched.

    Here's the synopsis of the build:

    Scott's tube chassis
    Tube x-member
    Body mounts
    100% TIG welded

    Scott's standard ifs
    New power rack
    Tubular upper and lower a-arms
    Cnc machined rod-ends
    Modular dropped C-10 spindle
    Ridetech SA coil-overs
    Torsion bar style sway bar.
    Wilwood 14 inch slotted rotors
    Wilwood W6A Caliper

    Scott's LSX motor mounts
    Scott's transmission mount

    Brake lines plumbed s.s
    Fuel lines plumbed s.s

    Scott's standard 4-bar
    Ridetech SA coil-overs
    Scott's Watts link

    Moser fabricated 9-inch
    Wave track 3:73
    33 spline axles
    Wilwood 14 inch slotted rotors
    Wilwood W4A caliper

    Scott's fuel tank with efi pump

    Wheels
    Billet specialties
    Rear 20x12
    Front 20x10

    Motor
    Built L-s 3 motor
    TCI automotive transmission

    Headers and Exhaust
    Custom S.S headers made by Scott's
    S.S mandrel bent exhaust by Scott's

    Ride height on truck will be 4 1/2 from ground
    Overall height on C-10 will be 56 1/2 to the ground

    Body mods
    Several custom modifications to many to list
    There will be a ton of build pics for you all to see

    Paint
    Palmer's customs to lay down one of his stellar jobs

    Interior
    Ron Mangus to do one of his one off interiors

    Our goal hear is to build a truck that you all will remember for years down the road

    Completion of this build will be early Spring 2014

    Here's a few pics to start.

    We started on the tear down and quickly realized that this cab was in fairly poor shape. Lots of hidden rust that needed to be addressed before we could get started. Rather than have it dipped (we've had bad luck with that) we sent it out to be media blasted. Our shop lead Brycen has taken the reigns on this project.

    TIG welder, grinder, and a DA. It's not so much how it's welded, as how it's prepped, fitted, and finished. You can achieve similar results with a MIG welder. It also helps having guys as talented as they are doing the work. (while I type about it in the office, LOL)

    few more for today..







    Justin decided he wanted a cool detail to run the perimeter of the engine bay, so he came up with this belt-line. It will run along the inner fender wells as well as the core support cover.

    Here you can see where the kick panel is moved forward 5 inches. This really makes a difference with leg room.








    Only thing left now on the firewall is a whole lot of grinding...

    Chassis was finished up this week. Finally got around to setting it on.

    The Goodguys trailer mandated that the overall height on the truck be no taller than 57". Right now we are sitting at 57.5" Once we chop the truck it will put us right where it needs to be.

    Here it is sitting on a set of mock up rims. Enjoy the pics.

    Thanks for the business! The wheels stay on the 'Burb though, it's the bosses. Unfortunately we've been too slammed with customer jobs to work on it the last year. Well, I guess I should say fortunately we have been too slammed. This truck though, already has wheels sitting here ready to go on it. You'll like them once you see them on. It fits really well with the build.

    I mostly use 120 grit paper on a angle grinder, but eventhough my body prep looks OK, it's far away from what's shown here!
    It's probably easy solution - I don't have the same experience and I lack patience...

    Lol! You nailed it - I don't have any talented staff. ;)

    Being slammed with bussiness is good justin took good care of me.... I do have a question about moving the lower kick panel forward as more leg room in these trucks is needed. But how close are your wheels at full lock to the firewall now? Did you guys move the wheelbase forward to compensate for this?

    The front wheel base was moved forward and there is plenty of tire clearence and full compression and when the tire is turned lock to lock
