In­te­rior Up­grades From Brothers Trucks

IN THE LAST in­stall­ment of our ’79 Chevy C-10 square-body build we showed you how we went about seal­ing the in­te­rior of the truck against out­side el­e­ments. We re­placed all of the glass and weather seals to pro­tect the new in­te­rior we planned for our project, and now we’re ready to ad­dress the in­te­rior.

If you’ve been fol­low­ing this build, you know that the truck lan­guished in the Ari­zona sunshine for about five years. The Phoenix area is known for its dry heat, which is good and bad: Good be­cause rust is­sues are far less com­mon; bad be­cause the sun just beats on the rub­ber, vinyl and plas­tic parts. This was the case for our truck; ev­ery­thing in the cab had been baked to death. On top of that, a lot of parts were miss­ing for some rea­son. In or­der to re­store the in­te­rior of the truck to an ac­cept­able con­di­tion, we needed to re­place just about every piece.

The great thing about square-body C-10s is that they have be­come very pop­u­lar in the last few years, so most of the parts we needed through­out the build have been very easy to source from af­ter­mar­ket com­pa­nies. When we started plan­ning what we wanted to do with our in­te­rior, one com­pany came to mind im­me­di­ately, Brothers Trucks. Brothers has been a lead­ing sup­plier of parts for 1947-87 Chevro­let and GMC trucks for years. The com­pany spe­cial­izes in C-10s and has thou­sands of parts avail­able, so we knew we could rely on them to help us bring the in­te­rior back to life. After comb­ing through the cat­a­log we or­dered all of the parts we needed—sim­ple one stop shopping.
