the rust problem....





i believe that this is the source of the rust problem. i'm pretty sure i'm going to keep them around for the shape.



the underside of the vinyl, i'm not sure if there is any special procedures for cleaning rust and adhesive off of the vinyl liner...



...or even if it's worth keeping...



under the hood, not really my place.



i removed the grill emblem so i can repaint the red-white-blue



this might be the third set of side mirrors installed, and these mirrors suck. i'm also looking for some advice on how to properly seal and "fancy up" the left over holes. does anyone have suggestions on chrome side mirrors?



anyone know where to get an original 1976 radio and antenna?

without emblem

the floors are an easy if there is no holes in the floors. it looks like just surface rust. just grind or sand it all off and seal the floors again to help keep it from coming back. YOU HAVE ONE GREAT LOOKING TRUCK!!!!
