I'm downstairs and she is upstairs, hence, I can laugh out loud.

Yikes Everything is expensive. Heck I'm probably in $600 just to have the hood hinges rebuilt and finished, and they still need to be stripped again and finished

The forestry truck above is beautiful. Simple and clean. Come with a SPID?

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

At less than $100 each for disassembling, cleaning, bead blasting, rebuilding, reriveting, painting, testing, and tuning the cost seems reasonable to me.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Installed an SPID that Jeff at outintheshop.com made for me. He did all the legwork on figuring out the options to list. I think it looks great. I'm not doing a full blown restoration on this truck, but I though it would look nice to have an SPID on there anyway. I'm giving this truck a functional rehabilitation. The original 307 and Powerglide are long gone, and only traces of the original interior color still exist, but I thought it would be a nice way to record a little history of the truck.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Finished my first restoration of a steering wheel. It is nowhere near perfect, but I think it will look pretty good in my truck. There are definitely things I'd do differently next time, like applying the smallest amount of epoxy possible and doing all epoxy shaping by hand instead of using a pneumatic sander. I found the spots where the spokes meet the hoop to be the most challenging part to shape due to the curves. Where the spokes meet the hub was much easier.
