    Thanks,
    Always short on time and feel like everything takes for ever. Been dealing with old f150 lately as well swapping engine and having to pull the transmission couple of times for various reasons.

    Have radio left to install. Have one that only radio works and one that is fully functional. But have to take the good one out of a different vehicle that is getting a better one.

    Decided to install the better radio. Actually sounds pretty good. This will be my only main daily for a while, so some working music preferred.

    It already been serving daily duties so far (no floors and all at the beginning). Now it is becoming more of a reasonable daily. Really kind of want to sell it before the paint completely fails. But it is now my only vehicle for my use(camaro is in pieces and trans am in paint). Added air bags last night in case need to move heavy things. It is nice to have a truck thing around.

    You maybe can confirm, do the fast ratio boxes from the '85-'87 Z28's and T/A's with 15" wheels have different internal stops for sharper turning?

    I thought all 3rd gens had same stops.
    Steering box is back together. Caught lower radiator hose trying to explode.

    Old rag joint for reference. With 3rd gen f body box elco became a different vehicle. A lot more inspiring steering, even with the rest of the stuff being old. Also found driver side lower a arm loosing hardware and loose. Tightened it secure.

    Changed hinge pins on driver side. driver side door came from a different car at some point and window frame does not line up at all. Huge variable gaps around the top. Played with adjustment some, including bending the top channel some and added a seal on body side.
