Did nothing with mine today. From the looks of the weather it may be shut down for the winter tomorrow.

Ah, I plan to buy the rest of my spark plugs and replace my old ones. hopefully it will run better. I know the passenger side won't be an issue getting the plugs out since I already broke them free.

Dentside, bumpside... I just classify them as trucks To me, dentside would be some trail rig that has a giant crease in the side of it from hitting a tree or something.

It is all about the style line down the side of the truck. On the bumps the line is bumped out. On the dents it is dented in. I like them both for different reasons. I've just owned a lot more dents. As long as it is a classic Ford it will always be sweet in my book. A friend in HS dad drove an old Ford (58 I think) with the optional 9' long bed. That was an old school "contractor special."

Exactly! 87-91 and 92-96 have "dents" created by body lines just not as deep as 73-79.

Just how stuck is this hinge O.o You should be able to spray something like PB blaster to loosen it right?

EDIT: Also today/tonight i was able to take TGM to a Round Table Pizza to meet up with 3 other FTE guys from the washington chapter. These monthly meetups are a new thing we are doing but so far tonight was the biggest turn out of I think 3 meetups. I also, for the second time ever, spun my tires. And it wasn't even icy out. Though it was raining.

Maybe a torch on the hinge or something also. You could try a hammer, bang the rust loose. Ummm I don't really know what else.
