INTERIOR UPGRADES FROM BROTHERS TRUCKS
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.
