Welcome Matt,

Are your 84 & 85 the same cab? If so you could probably just swap the whole glass & frame. Be careful the head liner is tucked into the rubber seal in the back glass, check your rubber seal for dry rot, once you pull out the frame there may be no going back without a new fresh seal. Either way I believe you will have to remove the back glass.

I have repurposed my old Harley exhaust, Cycle Shack baloney slice with a Y split out the center of the back under the roll pan, the exhaust is baffled so it's quieter than straight pipes.

Fan Freakin tastic! I blew a head gasket right before the last swap meet. Now I get a "do over" and I've got something to look forward to and all summer to get ready!

Has anyone tried doing a ghosted flag? I'm thinking of wrinkle paint black flag, then satin black over the top of it, shoot some clear on it and call it a day. In my head I see a textured finish that you would almost have to be right on top of to see. Any thoughts?

Thanks for all the positive input lockleaf,DrvnDrvr & Distributorguy. It's the reason I posted in the first place, hell it's the reason I wanted to be part of this community. I always valued your opinion datsunmike I think you're a pretty bright guy. I was hoping to get some positive feedback from you but I guess you're having a hard time getting past what you believe is right or wrong for my truck. When it's done and if it works I'll post a picture.
