Well I finally made some progress on the truck, mostly all interior work. I figured I would tackle the interior first then move to the outside. I stripped almost everything out and fixed a few rot spots, repainted everything back to the green it is supposed to be, dynamatted the floor to help with sound and insulation, put new front and rear floor mats in, pulled the steering wheel, fixed all the cracks and repainted the wheel, repainted the horn button, put a new air ride seat in it, and cut out the old bent/broken/welded/hacked shifters and made new ones. I also have the rest of the dash pulled out and repainted, along with the heater box, which I pulled apart to get the rusted up flaps and vents working again, and to fix a small coolant leak. I still have to clean up the headliner, and make a new back curtain piece for the lower half of the back of the cab. Its been a slow process but im glad to finally see it take shape! Ill try to remember how to post some more pictures.

If you are looking for a shift plate diagram for your truck. I think Watt's mack sells some and Matt Phall Restorations in Connecticut had some for sale also. Joe D.

Looking good

As far as the pictures typically the way you take them with the phone will determine the layout if you load them on you cpu you can straighten them then upload and you should be good
