Street 1976 C-10 Stepside Shortbox - Beagle's Build

Overview

So I recently received a rather large bonus at work and decided that I wanted to buy myself something fun (as if I don't do that enough as it is). My company has bonuses every quarter, sometimes they are size-able. My previous bonuses have went to bills.
One thing I have been wanting to do was get a C-10 short box. I always wanted to do "Big bother - Little brother" pair of trucks. Originally I wanted the C-10 to be the same with a 91 clip and stepside box, same color and such. As I have thought about it more I decided it would be more fun to have "little brother" not an exact copy of my 79. So once I knew what my bonus was going to be, the search was on for a C-10. I then decided it had to be older then 80.
So 80 and older and short box have been my criteria.

The search was on.

I searched for about a month before I finally hashed out a deal and this followed me home.

Progress will be slow, like my other threads. But probably even slower. I also want to document the trials and tribulations of building...

So I have been asked to put together a build thread. Please bear with me as many pictures I will be posting were kind of dark and didn't scan in real well. So my story (and my truck's) started in 1998. When I turned 16. I grew up in Northern IL outside a small farming town of 500. My father is a farmer and always had squarebodys. So I always wanted one. Shortbox. Lifted. Huge tires. Rollbar full of lights. Dual pipes with huge tips. The stuff that measures a man's manliness. You know the...
