Nice truck to start with, I'm not really a "green guy" but that dark green looks really nice I think it would grow on me.
Any progress lately?

Picking up where I left off, I took her to get floors done.

This is today, and very dirty, but very solid, and reasonable, as I can not weld well.

Next, I had to replace the fuel tank, I was having leaking from the filler neck on the inside, and from the sending unit. So it had to go, hence the new one.

New sending unit. "one more 1/4 turn.... SNAP!" New broken brass fitting. I sweat off the old HD brass fitting and soldered it back on, no leaks.

Did I mention the old neck had a galvanized chain link gate tube as part of the neck? Who does this?! No wonder it took forever to fill at the pump.

Turns out it was a broken coil spring. I got new shocks in and have new springs on the way for a 2"/3" drop, just a little lower with a slight rake. I will post pictures when they are in.

Thanks guys! She is my daily driver, so my tweaks are usually a lot of little steps instead of doing big projects all at once.

Also thinking of a 2/3 drop for mine. Which springs and shocks are you going with? Will stock length shocks work with 2/3? thanks

I thought about it with the old suspension in mind, OE springs with new shocks works. OE springs will sag over the course of 49 yrs. So I sort of gambled with it. Turns out they work, and work well. I used CPP 2/3 drop springs, with OE length shocks.
