pulled a red hood from a 92 f150 yesterday. 3 coats of wax and looking like new. put it on today, made alot of adjustments. driver side of the hood/fender not lining up is makin me a bit angry but theres more adjustments to make, i guess.
Wow this thing is still going. Well today I finally dropped the cash and replaced about 80% of the suspension, every brake part from the master cyl down, and a new motor I picked up cheap an orphan from a 460 swap with 3k miles since a healthy rebuild. It has been especially busy week especially for my check book but I'm just finally glad to make some real progress.
Man, that sucks...is the rest of the bed (quarter panels and whatnot) rust free? If so, I'd just have a spray in liner put in. I've been trying to find a shortbed for a couple months now, and they're pretty darn expensive...I'm thinking about just having mine fixed.
Check out LMC or NPD, they make reproduction bed floors, quarter panels....well...just about everything for these trucks. and they go all the way back to like 48' on Fords. Check them out if your interested in getting it fixed before lining the bed.
My Quarterpanels are almost rusted completly out on mine, but the floor is great. It's had the factory original bedliner since it was new, and I took it out a while back. Looked perfect so I stuck it back in and never bothered it. I'm going to replace my quarter panels or just replace the whole bed if I can find one....they're a really nice dent where it looks like someone hit a lightpole or something in the rear...the drivers side tailight doesn't even fit right.
thanks for the link. ill be checking it out. although, i would like to find a one piece bed floor. i know lmc has bed panels that come in 16x?? but i dont want to weld pieces together. my whole bed floor is practically shot. i was thinking about getting another bed the same color but trying to find that is a needle in the hay stack.
i have seen what light poles done with pick up beds. lol.
Well 2 days ago she died on me. Today i went to see if maybe the timing chain broke by hand cranking and looking at the dizzy rotor. the crank pulley doesn't move as the belt just slides over it, so i think i froze my motor up somehow.
