Week to Wicked: Day One…And So It Begins

Day one of the Week to Wicked presented by CPP C10 kicked off with the Classic Trucks/Tech Center crew (along with folks from Brothers and CPP) transforming the long bed into shorty with help from Brothers Trucks and their new 1963-1972 frame conversion kit, which includes everything necessary to complete the job (minus the tools and labor, of course!)

Brothers developed their kit—which works on C10 and C20 frames—to take all the guesswork (and repeated measuring, as they claim) out of an otherwise daunting task. Well, the truck was rolled into the Tech Center at 9am, and wouldn't you know it—by lunch time the "long" bed was no more. Granted, there were a few extra hands on hand, so to speak, not to mention a grip of cameramen to avoid tripping over, but even that did little to slow progress for Jason, Ryan, Christian, et al.

After a quick bite, that brisk progress will resume this afternoon as the crew prepares the C10 for its all new CPP suspension, brakes, and steering, a Mast Motorsports LS7 with Holley fuel system and exhaust, and a Performance Automatic 4L80 overdrive. Stay tuned—we're only a half day down!
