Before...



After....
(*dont know why my phone made the floor look yellow!)

Still need to add about 50 hog rings and pull it tighter but the wife wanted me to do other stuff so I had to stop. BTW, I converted the bottom from 'high spring' to full foam.

I replaced the springs with a ridged lower but it feels perfect when sitting in the seat. It may be a little stiffer than if it had the lower seat springs but it feels perfect to me.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

After pretty much just driving the truck for 20 yrs since I originally built it, a few repairs/upgrades were way past due. Fixing to move to NC, so was time for a new steering box & front sway bar. Also finally got around to making the shock relocation brackets for the rear & modifying the 32 Ford track arm to get a better angle. truck rides much better now & will be ready for the curvier mtn. roads.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Replaced the carpet. Had to be done since my master cylinder was leaking into the cab. Had about a 12" wide strip of carpet and pad that had soaked up the leak over the however many years it was leaking. Had to clean out all the soft paint and brush all the rust and treat it.

I also put down some insulation. I researched a little more than I wanted to on the subject and decided to try an alternative route. I purchased a couple 24"x10' rolls of Reflectix double reflective insulation, for about $11 a roll and spray glued it to the floor, let it dry for a day and then put the carpet in over it. Install was easy and everything seems to be working well and staying where is is supposed to.
