I have a 85 F150 that my son and I have been slowly working on for a year.
So far we got a 302 and my son and a fellow member here at FTE rebuilt it for me. My oldest son also rebuilt all my fuel injectors. I did all the cleaning and painting so far.
the next thing we did was work on the interior. The carpet was free and I also have a sliding rear glass I have yet to install.
Here is the dash before we cleaned and painted it,but it needs to be replaced.
I also painted the plastic main dash ,door panels,and all plastic trim,sun visors with Duplicolor. that was a waste of money. Now I am going to have to repaint everything with SEM so I am going to change the color again.
After the E fan and Exhaust is done. I plan on swapping the rear brakes from drum to 4 wheel disc brakes and plan to look for all the parts from a late model Explorer including a Tru Trac rear gears for the rear.
Yeah, big bucks, but I also am planning on a Ford Racing 5.4 DOHC supercharged crate engine for my '02 Super Duty. $45k for a new truck, $45k for a new GT500 or $18k into a paid for truck. 500 horses here we come!
Great looking project Cliff! Man ain't it great building rods with your son....I'm lucky that I get to build with my son, and my son-in-law! Problem is they are both into Ford Trucks, and keep trying to talk me out of my "goodies"
