Another update!

Well I got some free time and did a few small things. Im mostly trying t do more labor intensive things until my cash flow is a little better.  :sad2:

I took Jack to the store to get some food before I got to work on taking the truck apart

Well anyways I got a Air cleaner housing from a buddy of mine so I got it installed for when she has to go get smogged.

Not a good picture because my hand where horribly dirty. But it works good I just had to make my own spacer for where the air cleaner meets the carburetor.

After, I got started to disassemble my entire front end body parts so a can wire wheel and prep for paint. But as I was doing that I got a horrible surprise...


There is a 4in crack that never got welded after someone tried "fixing" an accident. I should have figured this to be hidden in here somewhere. It just sucks. But Ill have some welding wire this weekend to start welding.

Removing body parts
