Not much work on Cledus but a little tinkering now and then. I did manage to scrape off the WEBN Sticker.




I replaced it with a smaller and more desirable decal. Very Happy



I also took the Comet to it. This is something I do a lot on these old cars/trucks. It cleans up the common dirt plus it cuts away at any scum, light rust and haze from oxidation the body may have. It helps later in the process of bodywork too. You can sand anything but sometimes that sludge is just being pushed around on the body unless you get crazy and sand to bare metal.

I got this set up from Kevin. Thanks again Kev.. I put it in a while back and it seems to be just what the old truck needed to get some tunes playing.

Sorry I thought I had a shot of it in the cab. When I go to the other house I'll grab the camera. Sleep

I was wondering if you got that installed. I think that it's a neat setup.

What is a source for that set up? I'm thinking of claiming storage on Brittney's '67. That would be a cool way to get the tunes without butchering the dash.

I got that from LMC truck. It isn't cheap for what it is but you don't have to hack the dash and most people that look inside of your truck would never know that it is there.

I still forgot to grab a picture of the headliner. I can show you a sneak peak at his sunburn he's getting.

Since the white Chevy blew up I been using Cledus for a work truck. So far it's doing it's job.
All these are from mom and dad new place I'm working on.

Brush from the tree line.


Leaves from the back yard.


One of many trips to Lowe's.


Hedges that were in front of the house. I hate box hedges. Very Happy





The old Ford has hauled more truck loads of trash from the rehab than I can count. cheers

I was a little worried about a good load of gravel in the Ford. I tossed in 1/2 ton and it seemed to do okay. I wouldn't want to take a ton out on the highway but it will creep it around town.

I really need to buy a beater work truck. Hauled a couple loads of brush out of the front yard today. The old Ford doesn't like the green grass at all. Sit and spin baby!

I bet it's a pegleg. You can still find those around with a limited slip to stick in there. Makes a world of difference when you get off the road.
Yep gets you just far enough out when you get stuck, you're screwed. lol!

It is. I thought it had a posi at first. I let it rip one time and it left 2 very short black marks. I guess it just got lucky. Very Happy

I like the ol' truck but it's not what I want in a shop truck. There are big plans for this rig. It will be done in stages and over time. 

What I want is a shop truck I can drive daily! Something that is dependable and easy to get parts for in case of a break down.

 Part pro touring and will handle like it's on rails and be able to do 130 MPH without stressing the engine for several 100 miles if I want to do it.

Part custom to showcase my metal work and most important it's a truck. 

IT HAS TO BE ABLE TOW STUFF & TO HAUL STUFF IN THE BED!

The truck will be in the weeds. Low! It may get lower in stages but by the time it's all said and done it will be ripping the heads off any rodents in the road that are taller than 2 1/2 inches hi.
