Question Summer truck projects

Seeing as today is the first day of summer, does anyone have any summer truck projects planned? I just replaced the starter solenoid in mine, and one of the door latch pins, and put a CD player in, only plan for me is to replace the pin on the other side now.

Got rid of the electronic fan controller for the Mark VIII and replaced with twin relays for low and high speed. Much better temperature control.

I fixed the busted power steering line on the Mustang which led to ripping the rack and pinion out ....and then the tie rods....then the ball joints .....struts are needed but they went back in for now. Lots of grease and cursing but the kids are in the back and we've been cruising happily with the top down for 2 weeks now. So far 400 kms and no leaks or roll overs so I think everything is back on order.

Had the old truck out once will get at it after some holidays

more work on my friends '97 F150 POS!
Got my side tank resealed and put back in finally. Ordered a sending unit from JBG and it didn't fit, wasn't going to send it back so I modified it to work. Very interesting fuel gauge readings from that tank now! oh well it holds gas and I need a lot of gas.
Also finally got my 300 I6 block and rotating assembly back from the shop, new pistons, mild cam, .030 over. Scored a Clifford intake on eBay and some powder coated headers on kijiji., still hunting for a carb and I have to get the np435 checked over. No luck on finding a ZF5 yet.
Started died on the 460 but that was easy enough.
Now to start on the Camper,....haven't done much. Washed the curtains and order new foam cushions. I took out the toilet too, nasty business but I have to clean it up and fix a leak. Going on a camping trip in week so I'll find out what else need fixin.

I find the prices are great but the delivery can be a little on the slow side and Jeff can be a little grumpy

Red face $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Upper and lower ball joints. All new brake lines flex and steel. Rewired firewall to tailights. Newsteering shaft,front axle u-joints, u-joints in front shaft from the transfer case. Speaking of transfer case I replaced that to.
But I have to give credit to the '70s Ford GURU for doing all the work and we've only just begun.
Still waiting for my rear shocks to arrive that will complete all the front ones waiting to go on.

HELL IT ALMOST SEEMS I SHOULD HAVE DONE A FRAME OFF.

THIS WINTER COULD BE INTERSTING, ENGINE COMING OUT!!!!!!!
