Did you see below the booster? They added a 15 " piece of metal to mount the brake line "distributor" (sorry don't know what it's called. The thing that sends the fluid from the booster to the 4 lines. ) instead of just bending the lines and mounting it below on the frame.

Don't get me started the previous owners I think just wanted it to work around the yard or down the road and back.

I removed all the wiring and I'm going to replace it and rewire it myself because I think they had stock in a electrical tape company. They taped EVERYTHING. I spent hours just removing tape so I could figure out what the wires were for before I remove it all from the cab.

Let me stop because I could on for hours but at least I know that with help from my neighbor and buys like you on this forum I'll make it a really nice and above all a safe reliable ride.
Yes Carlos, I noticed all that stuff....what I looked at was the actual cab itself...it looks pretty good. This is work in progress, it's not supposed to look pristine yet...The cab looks straight and trust me I've seen a lot worse. If it was done it wouldn't be a project.

Happy to help
Ray
