Between yesterday and today I have:

-Removed the wiper fluid resevoir (Gonna replace it with a Focus resevoir)
-Finished the rest of the split loom I had, still need more
-Finished my neon lights in the grille

So here's my progress...



And here is some of my findings....

This is the brown crap that was in the radiator resevoir, and the overflow tube....Needless to say, I'm putting my new radiator in SOON....

And here is my nicely rusting radiator support brace....UGH...

Im ready for the 351w!! im doing a 351w swap here soon also

should try some radiator flush to clean the rest of the cooling system so the new radiator doesnt get all rusty... its worked great for mine

Edit: i thought u were 351w swapping... maybe i was wrong

my core support wasnt that bad, but it was close, even though there was metal there, it was super thin!

If I keep the oil changed, that will happen when Hell freezes over, thaws, and re-freezes....

I know a good truck when I see one. Yours just needs a paint job (I'm obsessed with black trucks, I'd have to paint it black).

I'm doing good man. Tired. Glad to have a job again. I tried to rep you but the rep police are out in force. =(

So I've been giving it very serious thought into selling my truck. The only thing stopping me is not having a truck to replace it currently. I would need to sell my truck to buy what I want. Kind of like cutting off the tree branch you're sitting on, you know?
