Good afternoon,
Iv been looking over and reading many posts over the last few weeks and decided to bite the bullet and make a first post.
I recently inherited my dad's old truck. Way back in the late 80's he did a full restoration on it from the frame up. It had the red interior with a pearlescent purple exterior. We uced it to haul the boat to the lake when we went camping and it was the race car hauler for many years as well. It was used and abused throughout its life. Lots of offloading and mud bogging, it even won a trophy for highest jump at moster truck event at victory lane speedway by winnipeg. She is a little rough in her current state but the plan is to slowely plug away and return her to her former glory!

Welcome. I love that your truck is a family truck and that you want to bring it back to form. I(we) can't wait to see some progress.

Thanks for the warm welcome!
I have been tinkering around for a few evenings here and there and so far I reinstalled the back seat, pulled the dash out. the passenger door is apart (trying to fix the window regulator and wiring). Also trying to figure out the issue with the speedometer.
