Ain't got a dang thing to do with me knickers being too tight !! 😏

I've been growing old with a 54 IH R-100 that I had for nearly 40 years ..

Did a body swap onto a 75 Jimmy 1/2 ton 4X4, built up a 400 ci 4 bolt main (517 casting) SBC motor, truck came from GM with a 350 ci and a TH 350 trans ..
Built up a TH 400 to take the place of the 350 ... It's soon to be replaced with a 4L85E that has also seen a few Hi-Po mods ...

At the present time I'm right in the middle of doing a makeover, adding a world of creature comforts as in A/C, killer sound system, keyless power door locks, power windows, 6-way power bucket seats with lumbar support, tinted glass with a outside Sun visor etc ..

About that Sun Visor ..
Been looking for one for a super long time ..
Of all places to run up on it was on Facebook Marketplace.
The ad said; "Don't know what it came off of and no clue what it fits"
I took one look at it and immediately knew what it fits !!

Was a bit rough, but with a bit of TLC got it back to looking like new again ..
