shortwide is starting off with a positive reputation.
I switched out the rectangle mirrors on the 66 for the proper little round mirrors.

And I also pulled the front bumper and painted it Wimbledon White instead of the brighter white that it was.

Two simple but effective improvements.

Here's a before and after.

Next task is to pull of the rear bumper and install the pretty contour bumper that I have for this truck.

I tried removing the hardware holding on the the current bumper but it wasn't budging.

I'll attack it again soon with a cheater bar.

Bumper Update:

I got all situated with my cheater bar and bottle of penetrating oil, and was ready for the task of removing the nasty old rear bumper on my 66 when I discovered, much to my chagrin, that it was welded onto the bottom of the frame rails.

No worries, I dusted off my oxyacetylene torch and cut the sucker off.

Then I mounted up the contour bumper.

I think it's a noticeable improvement. Next is to repaint the FORD letters on the tailgate and then try to rub some life back in the old Sahara Beige paint.

Here's a before and after set of photos.
