Its been a while, few thing done: got the motor started, rebuild the carb and now working on the passenger side rear wheel drums, it hard to turn the wheel, sticking. Put on the front bumper but couldn't leave it because the lower core support was getting on my nerve's, so this winter pull it out and straight it out. This is what it looks like before i did that, found lower valance on Ratsun, thanks to the seller and now waiting to pick up my wooden 240z steering wheel.

your bed is missing something. either a spacer, washer, rubber piece..... i don't know something. it's a hair lower than the cab is. i like the pin strip all the way around the truck but it really shows the bed being lower. looking good otherwise


you assume i have any fucks

Front top edge bed should be even with the little flat edge on the cab.

Grill, lights are on which was a pain because it was all bent up as you see in the older pictures but i did what i could until i can afford to buy the whole front bezel and grill with from one of our member, but money is tight, so for now use what i have, i just want to drive.

When I ran drum brakes all around I found that keeping them adjusted was the key to having them work there best.  Nice work bring this one back to being road worthy.  Congrats!

Charlie69, Thanks, had to be creative with little funds. Drums brake take a little to get use to and you are right it has to be adjusted to get them working, soon should get a video with the pickup.
