Re: thinking about getting this in the morning

Got my back seat back from the upholstery shop. Did a nice job matching the front seats I didn't want to go crazy with the diamond stitching.

i never know if it's going to have paint on it or not when i swing by to visit
yesterday i spent a little time taking off parts here and there i stripped out the rear window regulator and the power window switch thank goodness for LMC looks like the only thing worth saving is the regulator itself nothing looks too expensive until you start adding it all up of course jeez louise

Re: thinking about getting this in the morning

Different color? I believe the quad-headlight setup uses a different core support.

Re: thinking about getting this in the morning

Sweet. They do like to rust on the side where the half-cab meets the bed rail, first one I've seen that rusted higher up on the cab first.

Apparently they were designed to drip water out through the channel on each side that gets clogged up which causes them to rust out in that area mine was not clogged, so no rust there. The rust on the roof was another story the previous owner sprayed some yellow foam in there maybe as a sound insulation but the foam retained water which caused it to rust. We thoroughly treated it and cleaned it out and welded and sealed so she should be tight for a while Gathering parts while the truck is in the shop.

That makes sense, I've never seen one rust in that spot only before.
