                  Good job J par. If it runs as good as it looks, you are in business... Should be an easy sell, or a nice one for the collection.

                    Well just still a couple small things to sort out and put back on the truck. I have the front bumper and Grill off. I need to put that stuff back on as well as buying a seat cover and putting the seat back in. Next weekend I'll order a carpet kit and door seals and that should be the end of spending on it. I'll need to take a small load to the dump with it as I put a lot of the old materials in the back plus a few things around the house that can go as well.. At that point I can bring it home and give the bed a good scrubbing as it is also a off-white with obvious green mold growing in it LOL.
                    I'll need the title to get here. That should be just a couple more weeks and give it it's last good cleaning and get it ready for pictures and ready to sell... So I feel I'm a good three weeks from being able to sell it...

                          I like D100's, I like the 8.75, I like the condition, 318 is cool with me, it's the right year, color isn't bad but not my favorite. Very simple and reliable truck.

                            Stone cold reliable 318, 4-speed that probably won't never break, both in a real nice package... What's not to like?

                                I just scanned back through this thread and couldn't find it, wondering where you got that rubber mat. Pretty good Idea, I may have to copy.

                                  I think it was a 355 I know I probably said earlier in the thread if not at 3: 23 but I'm pretty sure 3: 55...

                                  It's from Ace Hardware. Just that black mat that goes down your hallway. I need about three and a half feet of it I think the mats are like 3 foot 4 think...

                                      It was one of those ideas going to the hardware store... When I looked at the material I thought hmmmm...
                                      I did it on my son's Power Wagon and it turned out good but I made the mistake of using one side and then cutting the other one out upside down so one looks like the truck you see and one looks like the backside of it. I like the stripe smooth front side as it looks clean and easy to wash. The back side is very porous and it seems like dirt gets stuck in it too easily and not easy to wipe off... needless to say I learn from my mistake this time and make sure to get them both facing up and as a matter of fact I did it underneath the Overflow Reservoir as well this morning with the rest of it..

                                        One side of my sons truck has half the original stuff gone, so that part will have to be trimmed in place. The other side I should be able to trace.

                                            Well rats! I thought I'd be sending that one piece (manual brake rod) pretty soon would be inexpensive but now maybe if I can get a thin piece of paper and Trace the pattern and the holes out I can send that to you if you're not in a rush..
