I covered 3 of the headlights with pieces of pizza box so that I could aim each one independently... apologies for the blur... the lens on my iToaster is full of dust.

Just stock halogens, H6054 Sliverstars I believe.
H6054 is the number for large square headlights... H4656 is the low and H4651 is the high beam for the four headlight trucks. Don't ask me how I can spit up those numbers from memory, haha.

Found a set of rubber mount blocks and some long bolts, and finally got my core support on, in hopes of getting the radiator I'm and hooked up.
Spent some time and unburied my radiator that I had saved for this project, only to find out after all that work, that it has a couple leaks in it. Dang.

After being discouraged about that, I figured I'd give it a face and put the grill, top headlights and grill trim on. First time its had a face to look at since I've owned it. Only had 2 of the 4 lights, so it looks funny.

If I can get the exhaust figured out, and a dipstick tube installed, I can get the cab, fenders, and hood on for the first time.

Put the plow on since there is a chance of snow today, although it will probably be just rain, according to the weatherman. Dam heavy stuff took out a large branch on my tree.

For me, I don't think snow would be an issue - occasionally.

Ice, and the salt used to combat it, is a whole nother story.

But, how often does Houston see snow ?
Probably seen it 10 or so times in real life and driven in it (light) 3 or 4 times.

Working on "harvesting" my donor cab and get it on my project frame. Its a little nerve racking disassembling a 2nd truck....wife is looking at me sideways. Hoping to get cab off and on a dolly to move it around and do some cleanup before thinking about setting it on my frame.
I definitetly have 2 jigsaw puzzles going.

Another tailgate band resto. Hopefully it holds up as I did a few things different.

1st, removed anodized coating using oven cleaner.

2nd, scuffed the center of band with gray ultra fine scotch brite. I went in one direction only. With the grain of the band.

3rd. Polished the outside edge of the band. The part outside of the black pinstriping channel.

4th. Clear coated with 2k clear coat. Applied 2 light coats.

5th. This is the scary part. lol Applied 3/8th inch label making tape. Got it at Office Depot. It’s super sticky but I don’t know how it will do in the heat, cold, and rain. If it doesn’t work out, I’ll remove it and paint some stripes.

6th. Repainted tailgate emblem.

Got a good rust free passenger door today. Gotta test and see if the widow goes up and down. Everything is there except the wing window but, I can put the one from the door on it now in it. Paid 300 for it. $hits getting expensive. I've got new motor for it if it needs one too.

Several years ago, I punched out a tape label and stuck it to the mirror glass of a work truck. The color (green) is starting to fade slightly, but it's holding up great for the most part.
