    So before anything i say this is a build but mostly just a cheap restore for now untill i can completely restore it i am fixing to turn 16 and only work 30 hour weeks so not much income is coming lol but i got the truck about a month ago or so and still have a little left to pay on it but for now biggest things are putting a new gas tank in, new clutch kit, and new tires in the future i dont know what i plan on doing to it but for now im just making it my daily driver i only have 1 picture as of now because i am on my computer but will try to post more later on!

    From experience, i would suggest replacing the pickup/sender while you are in the tank.
