Re: 68 C50 Looongbed pickup build

per·se·ver·ance
ˌpərsəˈvirəns/
noun
noun: perseverance
steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success. "his perseverance with the technique illustrates his single-mindedness". synonyms: persistence, tenacity, determination, staying power, indefatigability, steadfastness, purposefulness; patience, endurance, application, diligence, dedication, commitment, doggedness, assiduity, tirelessness, stamina; intransigence, obstinacy; informal stick-to-it-iveness; formal pertinacity

Yeah...all this stuff is demonstrated in this thread. Though somewhere along the line it left "farm truck" status. Awesome build man!

Thanks for checking it out! I took a look at your burb, cool truck. Let me know if you wife gets her way and you get rid of the bucket seats, I might try to talk you out of those....

As for it's stats as a farm truck, we shall see

Oh, I have my new clutch and still trying to figure out what to do about the leaky trans. Stay tuned.

Not much progress to report. Trans is out, flywheel resurfaced, new clutch and pressure plate purchased and trans in the shop getting reworked.

I hope I can figure out where all the bolts go when I start to put it back together.
