    I went ahead and put the long bed back on until it warms up this spring. May be I can drive it soon if seats get finished.

    Weather is not cooperating though.

    Got my seats back today! Finally.

    Hopefully I can get them put in this weekend.

    Thanks. It's getting there.

    The seats are in now. Had to have new brackets made. They were too tall.

    I'll try and get some pictures tomorrow.

    Night and day improvement! Are those standard seats from that truck?

    The back is factory. The front is not. But they were in the truck when I got it and they looked more comfortable than the factory bench seat.

    Yeah they do for sure, that's why I was wondering I would look up where to get some.

    I replaced all my door hinge bushings a while back. All except for the driver's side. It was too far gone.

    Went to install new hinges on it... man what a pain! Had to take the dash back apart, and the radio, and the front fender.

    Who thought it would be a good idea to put one bolt in from the cab side!?

    I got my a/c compressor mounted. Fittings are ordered. Hopefully I'll have a/c soon.
