    Finally picked up a winter beater. It was an old paint truck I found sitting in a warehouse in miami. It needed a lot of work but I think it came out pretty good. I'll post some snow pictures when Maine gets hit hard this weekend

    Things done:
    New starter
    New distributor wires
    New radiator
    New rear bumper brackets
    New seat beat buckles
    New rear window latch
    Restitched front seat
    ALL fluids changed
    Herculined Bedliner
    removed all sticker
    Duplicolor plastic bumper restorer
    Herculined front grill
    Sony headunit

    I was just thinking the same thing. I heard it went down into the forties the other night in Miami! 4WD might just come in handy.;) Seriously, that is a nice truck and a nice job bringing it back.

    No, I shipped it up here. It ended up being cheaper that way. I paid $5000 for the truck 120,000 miles. I bought it in Florida to avoid prior rust.
