Bought a '75 luv off a farm here in sunny South Africa.

She was in a bit of a state when I received her, but not so bad as not to want to continue with the project.

There was some surface rust, the bed had a few rust rot spots, plenty of dents and a smurf covered interior.

The plan was to fix this truck and use it as a daily driver.

Now the real work starts, want to add a few modern niceties like alarm and central locking, tint the windows, and maybe add an electric aircon.

Also want to do an inch of drop block in the rear with aluminium, but that a challenge for a later day.

Time to give this old a girl a service and fluid change!
