    Got the tank back in solo, was a bit if a bear for some reason bolt holes weren't lining up??

    Took it for a drive after dinner, there are still carb issues ( of course it hasn't been re-cleaned since the rest of the work ) gonna take some patience to chase this dirty fuel system around...

    Gonna go take in a car show for dad's day.

    Hey Jer, I certainly have room to store one until I decide if this thing is getting mods... PM me if you want it gone & $$ etc.

    Finally got a decent drive in, fueled up and circled back home the long way. Couple issues but it's probably first 30min drive it's had in 20+ years so I'm happy

    I now know why the floormat behind the drivers seat looks kinda melted - it is Muffler damn near touches the floor there and you can really feel the heat pump up after a few miles, so that'll need attention...maybee just simple as slide a glass pack in there for now?

    It also has some minor coughs and stutters but that'll just be tinkering, brakes are acceptable but no better, springs & padding in the front bench are done, need to find a Mexican blanket to fold up for now.

    Actually I'd like to get the seat rebuilt, anyone recommend an upholsterer?

    I know of Neighbourhood Autoglass doing interior work here in Langley. I know some others that do it on the side but not likely to persuade them to work hahaha. Trucks looks really good, must be really enjoyable to putts around in.

    Wow that is looking great! I have been keeping an eye out for one for a few years. Just waiting on a good deal to come at a good time.

    Could also go International Harvester though. They seem to be quite plentiful here in Alberta
