On the way home I stopped and picked up my recovered MII bucket seats. Had him delete the headrest openings, and sew them to match the Taurus backseat pattern. They came out very nice, but the material is just a bit less shiny than the rear seat. I may wipe it down with some Armorall to see if it brings up some sheen to match closer.


Got the radiator back in, and upper/lower hoses. Installed the electric puller fan. Also got the hose for the gas tank filler, and finished off the tank. Get back to wiring tomorrow, and keep tying up loose ends. Realised I didn't install an inline fuel filter, so have to put one in ahead of the fuel pump.
What if you dye the front seats with same dye as rear.?

Actually, it was a 45 mile round trip tow. I thought the price was fair. Mickey offered to haul it tomorrow but his truck has a 37 gallon tank. Better to hire Joe and his roll back. I can't afford to fill Mickey's tank for him.

Yep, only have rattlers here, and they're not usually on my wet side of the state! But I am old enough for the heart attack!

Just remember. Every day is a gift. Live it to the fullest. To wake up is indeed a blessing and not to be taken lightly.

Well, I am cleaning, going thru the truck parts and the Gran Sport parts, selling the Gran Sport parts and filing the truck parts. Now that I found the cab mounts I have no reason to dig anymore. I also found the door hinges so I am pretty much ready to rock.

I did put a new clock in my SnapOn clock. Hey don't laugh, I got it for FREE! All I had to do was buy about $3000 in tools.




496CHEVY3100, do you have any idea what this bracket is? I may have made it, but I think it's original. It looks like maybe a brake line bracket?



Anyway, I took this truck apart over 20 years ago so I will be asking a number of these questions I am sure.

Brian

Yeah I didn't think I would forget a thing about that truck having had turned every single bolt on it a number of times over the years but this age thing, holy crap. And it scares me too because my mom died of Alzheimer's, that of course is on my mind when I forget something I really should have remembered. No so much this bracket, I can't expect my brain to store something as immaterial as this bracket in the grand scheme of life. But sometimes I forget things that I REALLY shouldn't have forgotten, those things scare me.
