Thanks guys.
As far as time consuming, I'd have to agree for sure. I was just thinking about a target of getting it on the road on my truck's 70th birthday next spring. I think I'll have to get my tail in gear to meet that schedule. wink

Looks great Kevin, my in-progress projects always look like a war zone until I get 'em finished and covered up somehow!

If you want to see a war zone, that was my shop till I cleaned it up a bit today. Took the day off of actual restoration and moved some things so I could move. wink

It was nice and cool this morning, so I decided to tinker on the truck. I cleaned, gapped, and reinstalled all the plugs. Tightened a bunch of bolts under the hood. Looked for the hole in the inner fender to mount my butterfly type heater hose holder and found none (???). One thing led to another and I ended up cleaning the cab interior for the first time in 12 years. Took everything out, swept the floor, and then put things back in their place. I learned that the back cab corners are great storage places. 😄 Everything looks nice and tidy now.

San Antonio had a bad hailstorm last Tuesday evening. I was sweeping out the bed and noticed where a chunk of ping pong ball size hail went through the gallon of water I keep in the back. I’ve been amazed that my old truck didn’t sustain any hail damage at all, but my 2019 F**d Edge sitting next to it was peppered with hail damage. They don’t make ‘me like they used to.

Had a flat on the '65 C10... luckily I was at home.

Pulled some sort of metal thing out of my tire, plugged, aired it back up, remounted it. So far, so good.

old tires are fun?

Recruited a new Bolter. Wyatt is 4. The occasion was a College graduation party for my youngest son, Alex, who is 22. When Alex was 4, I took the same picture of him in the same truck- my ‘46 GMC EC-101. Wyatt is my niece’s first child. He was thrilled. Of course, his ride was limited to a slow trip around our yard.

Gotta love the young-ins. They have an eye for good things. My granddaughters who are 8 and 10 were helping me clean up my 49 over the weekend.

Took the seat out of the '55.1 COE 5700 so I could get to the gas tank. Had to cut the straps out and removed the tank. The critters left their homes, with hickory and walnuts. Got it cleaned out and ordered tank straps and sending unit.

Took 1959 Apache on first shakedown run following many years of slow progress. Finally on road and making progress. Drove 30 miles after puttiing in a new aftermarket temperature gauge. Truck still need finishing touches but is able to go down road at this point.
