I drove mine to work this morning where it sits in the parking lot. Tonight, I'll drive it back home where it will sit in my driveway. Pretty much the same routine M-F lol...

Painted, wet sanded and buffed the inside of both doors (base/clear). Saturday I'll paint the outside of both doors (2 tone). The hood is painted, the doors will be painted, next it's on to the cab (it's primed and ready for paint.

Just pulled Juice away from the wall in the garage on the vehicle dollies getting it ready to drive to work the next two days. I also got new tires for it a couple of weeks ago. I still may have a little tread left on those new rear tires...lol

Wow, so many people restoring their trucks... I put the plow back on the truck, after putting new trip springs on it and 2 new A-frame mount bolts, instead of the pins which were constantly being knocked out by the ice and snow. Took it up the road and plowed off about 3 inches of additional snow from the shoulder. Bought a new PTO cable for the hyd. pump for the dump bed, but didn't get it installed. Yesterday mounted 4 recap 235/85/16's on the back axle. They are all season tires, but have 16/32 tread, and are done really nicely.

You just described most of my week days only no snow here in Sydney, a little rain, but thats clearing.
Untill the $$$ get saved up, not alot to do.
