Thanks, i put allot of hours saving her... There were mechanical and electrical issues i had to deal with from thr previous owner...

the whole ingition, timing system was a mess and had to be replace from the dizzy up.

the rear wiring harness had caught fire and shorted out the all the rear lights and fried on to the rear taillight circuit boards.

But well worth the time... many many times i almost quite. like last year the ignition problem had me stumped so bad i had to drive my lowered blazer all winter... grrrrr that was a tough one.

Now i've still gotta level the cab with the box, and remake one of the step supports. and i started making the roll pan. and the stereo

Great looking truck. You did a great job. I feel the same way, why have someone else do what I can do. And if I don't know how, then learn.
