    Lightbulb My 1998 K1500 Silverado Z71 Picture Log

    Basically this is the only acceptable location I found for the type of thread I'm creating. I'm going to just keep a picture log book of the truck as I take on task to improve it. I'll start with a few regular how it is now pictures. The first being my first top off at the gas station (79 bucks from E!!!!)

    Will snap a few from different angles tomorrow. I took off the toolbox and the rail guards already (wanted more bed space). First task coming up is replacing the exterior door handles and the interior power mirror switch.

    I guess follow along if you want to see the truck as it progresses!!! Thanks for viewing (mods/admin if this is the wrong place for this type of thread let me know)

    You're in the right place for this type of thread....and it's definitely a good one to start. It's fun to watch someone's pride and joy grow over time. Your body style is one of my favorites and am looking forward to watching the progress.

    Another good idea is to post pics under your profile. It makes it easier for members to quickly check out your ride. In example when I put on my new grille i added a new pic but kept an old one up that had the old grille on it.

    Thanks Dirty Dog!!!

    Here's a couple more and then my first projects to tackle (likely tomorrow evening if parts show up).

    Interior Driver's Side


    First Project = Replacing Door Handles (Driver's Side is busted going to replace both at same time to keep 'em uniform)

    Second Project = Replacing the Power Mirror Switch

    Also going to try and clean the carpet better, possibly this weekend if weather is nice. Will take out both seats for this job!!!

    Lastly going to put fresh Z71 decals on it, the driver's side is in bad shape and the passenger's side isn't much better.

    Love the truck man! I'm a huge fan of that body style, probably my favorite. I like what you're doing with it. If I might make a suggestion I would suggest putting the new body style Z-71 decals as well as the new body 'Silverado' badge on the tailgate. I did it with my old 06' truck and it really made it unique and I think it would compliment your truck well.

    Truck is looking good! I 2nd the hurt on filling up from E which is why my truck is getting the new nick name of lawn ornament. Keep the mods and pics coming! I like the lower light covers, are you looking to black out your ride more?
