My New Project - 1980 F100 - Pics

So my grandpa finally decided to get rid of his truck. He mentioned just taking the "piece of junk" to the dump. I immediately stopped him, and he ended up just giving it to me for free, title and all! I am very excited about restoring this vehicle, and I knew this would be the place to come and get that help.

If you guys can give me any guidance, this is a totally new territory to me. In line 6, single cab, pre 1985...etc.

This is how she is now and I am very excited to get going on it:

Nice! It almost looks like the carpet was removed a very long time ago. I thought all the trucks had a removable panel so it could be replaced with the one needed (manual, automatic 4x4, plane automatic).

Thanks bilt,

So I got the dash taken out and I was taking a look at my partslist...

What do you guys recommend for A/C hose replacement and where may I find such replacements at a good cost? Already have my new compressor.

Your truck has Deluxe dealer A/C.

The dealer added it later. So you need to look for parts for that system.

I'm really having trouble finding parts for that system. Anyone have a suggestion? LMC only has factory air in their catalog.

edit - found an ac hose place by the house, I may just have them rebuilt...

Rebuilt would be your best option.

Dealer A/C parts are hard to come by as it's not supported much in the aftermarket sector, and the dealer parts are discontinued.

Haha, not for long!

Just got the hoses dropped off for rebuild.

What are you guys using to seal off the hole in the firewall where the AC hoses go through? I hammered off all the black/tar - looking stuff in order to bust them out!

I'm not sure what the dealer used to seal those. Sounds like an expandable rubber or foam might work.

The factory A/C doesn't have that problem...

Got the majority of the dash out. Since the pic I removed the speedo, all that remains is a wire harness.

Got a question, is there suppose to be a hole in the housing picture below? It looks like it was cut with a dremel or similar??
