Question- in the interior episode it was mentioned that you stamped out the CRAFTSMAN logo on the tailgate "in aluminum". The tailgate looks so OEM I can't imagine you built the whole thing out of aluminum. Did the video mis-speak or did you actually integrate an aluminum piece into a restored OEM tailgate ? CAn you elaborate a bit on how that was done ? (not asking the secrets to the perfectly formed logo letters !)

I caught that too in the video....
To integrate the aluminum piece with the letters, we used 3M Panel Bond adhesive, a technique used in the collision industry and by automotive manufacturers to bond dissimilar materials.

Well, the truck made it's official debut at the SEMA show last week and was a huge hit. We were also honored to take home a GM design award for the C-10 for best GM G-machine.

Hopefully in the next couple of days, I'll have some good completed pics. In the meantime, here are the next few videos to bring us up to date:

With the truck heading for the Barrett Jackson Palm Beach auction block tomorrow (approx 3:30pm), it seems fitting to do a quick pic update of a few cool shots from the last few weeks.

The truck is being auctioned at the Barrett-Jackson event with proceeds going to 'Rebuilding Together Inc'.

Check out the auction listing HERE

We also have the entire collection of build videos in one place on our site here: www.roadstershop.com/craftsman-c10

And some pics:
