    Bug bomb it, kill all critters and air it out for a week, lol...

    I'd keep the existing glass in it because less leaks. But if it's free then I'd snag it anyway and just throw it up into the garage rafters for future use if need be. Just my .02

    Fuel tank is empty. Lol

    I would be trading my rear glass for his, because it's coming from a parts truck that the guy plans on keeping around.

    I've already started spraying the truck down with spider killer, tomorrow I'll be spraying the underside and working on wrapping up the rest of the small details.

    That is what success looks like.

    I got those broken bolts out finally, one of them took the nut with it. Don't care.

    I got the shock bolted in, got the torsion bars aligned and cranked up as high as they can go, and took the truck down off the jackstands.

    Then I did a silly thing...

    I don't think this truck will actually go fast enough to need those hood pins, but I felt like it was necessary. I bled for those too, a tiny sliver of metal caught the tip of my finger.

    Tomorrow will be the maiden voyage. I've finished everything I need to in order to drive the truck, the only things left are cleaning and the tires.

    I've decided I'll be putting the old door cards back on for now, it's going to be a while before I can make new ones, and I'm in a hurry to get this thing on the road. I will be modifying the old ones slightly, just removing the extra vinyl from the top where it's cracked and leaving the top edge of the door as painted metal. I'll post pictures once I've got them back on.

    I'm excited.
