The other evening I was watching American Restoration on the History Channel. During the span of the 30 minute show, two kids managed to teardown and restore a truck identical to yours.

If two unexperienced chaps can do that in 30 minutes, why are you taking so long????

Ah, the magic of reality TV and lots of money. If I had reliable assistants, and some hollywood producer writing the checks I would have bought Milliman's barn, heated it, brought in an overhead winch, a lift, and full blasting room. No problem then. And another thing, those 2 young kids don't have any kids or a wife that needs tending too (occasionally). All good though, I looked under the sheetmetal of that truck and the restore was cosmetic only.
