It's the other way around for old American farm trucks. You use whatever you have so if it's too nice you can't hang with the truck guys. I'm going for the clean overalls crowd not the khakis and tennis shoes crowd.2 different clamps on the cabin heater hoses ( which changed routing a lot ) …. not for purists !
Not keeping it. My list is getting pretty short, almost to the point of selling as is. I need to change the windshield gasket (I have a new one), change the headliner (I have a new one), clean up the wiring and add a rear tail light (have the parts and new lights) and the biggest and most important on the list is mounting a spare tire holder (have an old one) and refurbishing a spare wheel for it. So in other words, I need time, not parts or money for it. If I get into Spring I'll sell it in it in whatever it's current condition is. I can tell I'm getting close to finishing one way or another because I'm starting to think about my next project.Have you decided to keep it? (i.e., did you give it a name yet?...)
