im totally stealin this idea from another section, but whatever! i, and im sure other FTE users, wanna know what YOU did to your truck today. wreck it? drive it? work on it? make mods? give us the low down.
I looked at mine all tucked away nice and comfy in a 50 degree garage with the battery tender hooked up just waiting on spring. Knowing me, I will be in the garage again today, so I wll look at it a few more times. I can't wait for nicer weather, so I can get it out and enjoy it some more. 31 days till spring if I am counting right!!!
A few days ago, I put a new scuff plate on the passenger side, and I am getting ready to put window felts in on that side along with a door speaker, and run wiring to a new stereo I am going to get. Oh yeah, I can't forget the window vent!
I also got the correct antenna on the way since mine is snapped off. Its a case of always a work in progress.
Well, I didn't do anything today but last weekend i put in the new gas tank and hooked up the steering and put on the new WARN hubs. This weekend I plan on hooking up the gas tank and finishing the breaks Then I will be able to drive it and am going to wash it.
I walked past my '79 F350 on the way to get in my 05 F150 to go to work this morning.
If it wasn't for the fact that the brakes don't work, it has a bad u-joint, a bad death wobble, a knocking motor, a slipping trans, and one burned-out headlight, I would have drove it...
And by the way, I did drive it to work yesterday. That's when the headlight burned out and I decided to park it until I get some things fixed. Hopefully it can come into the garage tonight to start on a long list of repairs...
I'm not doing this work on the 74 supercab - but here is what is happening with it right now. I will own the mold for these fenders and can make more sets if people are interested.
Oh - and the front suspension will be widened to fill out the flares too!

I'm working on putting a cummins into my F-250. Over the weekend I cut a few holes in my core support for the intercooler outlets to fit through. I also made the mounts for the intercooler, along with having to modify the hood latch to fit everything.
Today I'll be pressure testing the intercooler, it has a few pinholes in it. But the guy I bought it from swears up and down it held 50 psi from his cummins engine before he pulled it for a larger one.
