Got the Buckle center belts in. The belts I found were in really nice shape, other than this frayed section. So I cut it off, since it was close to the end, and sewed it back up. That repair is done and all the belts are mounted in the truck.

Re: My 86 build

My Door Panels arrived this weekend. But before I install them, Iím going to replace my door pins & bushings. Iím waiting on a few tools to help aid with the removal of the pins, and the other tool helps with the placement of the bushing.

Re: My 86 build

So the other day, when I installed the Jack Tools where they are mounted on the right side engine room, I noticed the battery try was looking a bit shabby. So I removed it, and Iím going to sandblast it and repaint it, along with the bolts.

Well I went to get the receipt to find out, because Iíve had the sticker in an envelope for several years. And I just got it out the other day, and the receipt was with it. I must have mistakenly thrown it away, because I canít find it now.

Re: My 86 build

Had decent day out, so I sandblasted the Tray and Bolts. Spray the tray with undercoating, since it looked like thatís what was on it already. Also got a tray mat and new positive connection. I would like to find an original looking, but this will do until then. All back together!!

Re: My 86 build

Changing out the pins & bushings on the doors. The PO seemed to think it was easier to tack weld the pins to the bottom of the hinge bracket, rather than just put back the C-clip! My brother came up to help, we ended up taking the door off by unbolting the hinge brackets. That gave us a little more room to use a Dremel and grind off the welds. Several hours later, we finally got the pins out!! Well, one door that is! While the door is off, Iím going to clean up the door jamb and do some spray paint touch ups. Another day we will reinstall the door and start the process over again, with the other door. 🥵

Re: My 86 build

That's too bad about changing your pins and bushings turning out to be such a challenge, but the engine bay is looking great with the refreshed battery tray and tire tools!
