I'm satisfied with the choice of dark machine gray for the wheels. A little contrast with the tires is good, I think.

Ha! You know it, spur! I didn't have a full face shield handy, just safety glasses, so I looked like a dog that got into a porcupine by the time I got finished. It is doing a nice job, though.

Slow progress, I literally wore out a cup brush on my grinder doing the 4 rear duals.
They were pretty rough on the deep sides, and I took them down to bare metal. Just the two fronts left to do,...

Having had several cars with vacuum wipers, I can tell you they're a treat!
As stated above, going uphill, or passing in the rain is an adventure.

Probably just an option. My '59 F350 has a custom cab, magic air heater, and lousy vacuum wipers!

As others have said, you can rebuild it. I just did two 1904's a couple weeks ago and they run smooth. Have a clean bench, and pay attention to where each part comes from. Check balls and float valve...

Beautiful truck, Maltman! Love the clean look of a styleside shortbox.
Being the purist that I am, I'm not convinced that all of these trucks need to be lowered. I know it's all personal taste, but...

Windshield install went slick using the "ripcord" method and a spray bottle of dish soap and water. Definitely a two man job.
