I had the A/C working but I keep having trouble with my compressor brakcets I made.Not sure I will have it fixed before someone else takes ownership of the truck. Everything is done for the A/C but the compressor bracket needs to be designed a different way. Heat works just fine.InteriorInterior still needs some work.

The old man that bought it worked the truck on his farm most all of its life until he passed away and left it to his grandson which decided to sell it to me at that point. This truck has its fair share of bumps and brusies but I think that just adds to the look. We patched the Cab corners inner door bottoms lower cowel inner kick panels and wheel welds floors and cab braces. All rust in the cab has been fixed. Cab has been undercoated too. The bed and fenders and tailgate has a small amount of rust in it but I didnt want to disrupt anymore of mother natures work than I had too.This truck runs and drives awesome and I have already put almost 4k miles on it all of which have been pretty much trouble free with the exception of a few small bugs to work out. Getting 30+ mpg around town and around 35 mpg on the highway. I ran one tank of fuel mostly all highway miles and went 565 miles on that tank. When I stopped to fill up I still had 4 gallons left in the tank. Do the math on that 565 miles / 16 gallons of fuel comes to 35.3 mpg. Not to bad if you ask me. Considering this thing is making almost 300 ft lbs of torque it will get down the road pretty good. Im sure ive left out some stuff but if you have any questions all you have to do is ask.
