My trucks slow progress

I bought the truck at the end of Sept, I wanted something like I had back in the 80's. I had a 79 F150, 10 1/2" lift with 40's. This one was/is pretty rough as it had sat for five years but it's what I was looking for. It's a 78 with 7" of lift, Auto with a 351M and a Holly carb. It wasn't running well, but is now drivable. I've replaced the rotors, drums and pads all around. Alternator, Volt regulator, radiator, Trans cooler lines, plugs, wires, dizzy cap and rotor, sea foam in everything, oil change, cleaned up floor and rubberized it, cleaned and painted doors, new door panels and new dash cover. Quite a few small things as well. There is a LOT of work left to do on this truck that will be done slowly over time. I need to take the time to snap some more pics but here are a few for now. I will be updating as things move forward.

Great work on the doors. That looks awesome. Slow progress is better than no progress so keep at it!

Doors look great.
Tried to look at that bed before coming down but it had about a foot of snow on it.
