That's a nice truck. I'd be a happy driver scooting around in that. Is the cab air ride? We just bought an '88 to put on the road, but it doesn't have an air ride cab. Makes a world of difference, I compare cab air ride to sitting on a cloud. I'm going to put air bags under this cab before I put it on the road.

But all the bolts with over sized washers chew thru the plastic that they hold onto

If they're double frame trucks, the best thing you can do to preserve them is split the frames apart one side at a time and sandblast/paint them. Some people even drill and tap the outer frame rail for grease fittings so they can prevent future rust jacking. Nowadays they make a "heavy single" frame, I wish they had started using them sooner.

Outstanding job👍👍👍 Is it a working truck? To nice to put on the road, but sure a lot less trouble than all them trucks you see on the side of the road with emission and electrical problems.    terry:MackLogo:
