First the good: All new brake hoses, new ignition coil, new battery, and tightened up steering box. Hell of a difference, it’s like a different truck on the highway now.
The less good: My top radiator tank has pinhole leaks, so I’ll be buying a propane torch and learning how to patch a rad. Good thing to know in case it springs more leaks in the middle of nowhere.
The particularly not good: The tops of my rear fenders are rusting. That’s where the rear seatbelts bolt onto. So I’ll be buying an angle grinder, cutting the rusty parts out, and getting a friend to weld a couple plates in.
Bonus: Buying an angle grinder means I can finally rid the front end of this tow bar, for towing behind an RV, and fix my approach angle.
