The Patrol is looking nice also.

Truck is a master piece.  Zed are you needing tail light lenses?

Charlie69,
I do have tail light lenses. I left them off the truck when I transported the truck to the engine shop, I did not want to have them damaged or lost.
Thanks,
Keith

Just installed driver side splash guard. Located new brass fasteners and stainless steel washers.

Hopefully, the passenger side will take less than the 4 hours it took to position the driver side.

'Another brick in the wall'. Kudos to you on such a true restoration, not just a refurb such as I'm doing. When you get it pretty much done I's love to come take a peek at the little pickup again. 

 

I've taken a little vacation on work on the 320 lately; literally and figuratively. We made a trip to the northwest moving a grand-daughter to a new job in August and the northeast for a little cruise in September. I've been erecting a greenhouse over the past month for the patio plants that can't stay out over winter. I've another good month to go on that project and then will be back doing more on 'Mighty Mouse'. I have been driving the heck out of him and enjoying immensely.

Your Welcome

 

How I did it is first I click share photo arrow, then I copy the "BBCode", then I come to the reply box/field, just above the reply box are a bunch of letters, B I U S X X, a couple other icons with lines and another one with a green sphere, that is the one you want, when you hover your mouse pointer over it it says "link", click on that and paste your BBCode in that URL box and click on "OK", now when you hit the post button to reply your photo should be published.
