Subscribed! Great build so far! Being a student and working at the same time is rough. Glad to see that you can get stuff done on 'er still!

Nice! make sure to snap a pick before you pull out of the drive. That would be cool to see crap i just realized its may 14, time flies. The old man is doing pretty good. Ill tell him howdy for you . Ya i sold the bronco up here in kansas city. Needed the funds for other projects lol ol #88 is tempting but i need to put the money in ole betsy (front ball joints and new seals) should be interesting since i have never done axle seals before lol

pics:


parts truck cab off and got scraped

power washing the frame



eastwood chassis restoration kit


old bent bumper back on (for now)

i got some 31's i still need to get mounted


slowly but surely its coming together.
things still needing done:

-front windshield install (need to find a good local down there or up here in kc)
-Front end seals and ball joints
-tires mounted
-wheels painted
-rear bumper mounted
-interior finished
-change all fluids
-take bed rails off
-fix spongy brakes, maybe do rear disc swap
- save for body and paint work

im sure im missing more but thats all i can think of right now

Looking good and save those rails hard to find Ford OEM $$ resale?

Hell sale ol #88 up there for me too I need the funds too. Anything over $1350?? its your pocket money for working the sale. NO BS and I am OBO but pretty firm??

Once truck is looking great, tell pops "howdy".

Thanks man! I wish my wife was excited as I am so be able to work on this thing in my own garage soon.

I plan on taking a week off in March to do some work on her before we haul it 3hrs north.

Swap good used tires on the current wheels, tune up, fix broken rear strut, install rear bumper hardware/bumper. Look into why the gas gauge is not working for the rear tank. I would like to get rid of any and all unneccesary wiring but that can be done at home. The to do list is larger than that but I dont want to bore anyone following this lol.

-Travis
