Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

Had a chance to pull the sender out of my tank today. I knew the truck had been sitting a while but I had hoped the tank might still be usable. After seeing what the inside looked like I pulled the tank out. I took it to a local shop only to find out they want $100 just to tell me IF it was salvageable. Going to check out what the hot rod hoarder at work has tomorrow and hopefully he will have a fuel tank that will fit between the rails under the bed.

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

Well after almost a year and many setbacks I finished the brake upgrade. Went from Manual Drums to power assisted Disc Brakes on all four corners. I also replaced all of the brake lines.

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

Congrats on brakes sorted! I am in the process of doing roughly the same, but keeping the drums on the rear. My first time running my own brake lines. I am having quite enough of lying on my back on the gravel drive way with crap falling in my face Question, how did you route the line going to the rear end? Stick with passenger side, or switch to driver's side? Thanks.

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

I built a bracket to lock my hood. It’s not foolproof but no one will expect it.

Today I'm finally going to wash mine. It's been sitting for a few weeks because work has been running me like crazy.

Took off one of the rad/grille top pieces so I could take out the bird's nest behind the driver's headlight.

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

Added a coolant recovery jug/windshield washer unit ( you sharp eyes will note that it came from a f**d), relocated the horns behind the grill and out of the engine bay. Searched a pile of tanks at the wreckers, couldn't locate one that "fit" the wheel well.

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

After 3 years of ownership, I finally gave Frankentruck a bath. At some point I need to completely scrub the truck in some sort of cleaner, because the car soap and sponge was not extremely effective
