2015 Progress
(Page Updated November 7, 2015)

    I purchased this truck for $500 on craigslist back in February of 2015. While the truck ran there were a couple mechanical problems to repair before it was road worthy. A bad head gasket was the main issue, which was allowing coolant into other parts of the engine. On a cold March weekend I was able to fix that issue, but in the process I broke the belt tensioner. That has yet to be fixed, but it holds enough tension to keep the belt turning. In September, the clutch slave cylinder failed, but that turned out to be a cheap and easy fix. Some of the electrical wiring has to be refined; the reverse switch in the transmission shorts, which affects turn signal functionality. 
    As for customization, the video above does a better job effectively explaining what has been done so far.

In 2016, I hope to finish the body work, paint, and interior, along with any other ideas I come up with.
