Since it seems i only get on this site for help when something goes wrong, or to look for parts.... Id thought i would add some pics of what i have done to the truck so far.

Rebuilt motor, smog delete, weber carb and pertronix ignition.

My wife, son and I cleaned, sanded, cleaned, primered, and cleaned again the bed for a roll on bedliner.
We used the rustolem kit. Time will tell how it holds up but so far looks alot better than before.
