Help me out here. I'm old and my eyesight isn't what it used to be, but "the green truck is 90% restored"? And "rust free"? Maybe he just means rust-through free.

I would recommend going with a drop axle. Sid's in Guthrie OK does good work and is reasonably priced. You can take or ship your axle and pick up one that's dropped to your specs. Next would be a set of mono-leaf springs but unless you can get a deal you'll probably pay as much for them as the drop ...

I would like something like this and yes it seems overpriced, but I think he's selling its history as much as the vehicle. '64 front clip or at least hood and grill.

I dislocated my right shoulder last year and was astonished at the things I wasn't able to do without the use of my right hand. Don't recall eating being that much of a problem, but getting dressed certainly was. Ever try to pull up a pair of jeans with only your left hand? Not easy. Had to thread m...

Thanks for the link. I need some square "U" bolts as I have misplaced the one's that came with my mono leaf springs so I can attempt to sell them. These are very reasonable.

I appreciate all of the welding helmet recommendations. I considered each one and the more I read and looked the more confused I got. So on Christmas Day I decided to pull the trigger and purchase the Antra 660. Almost the same unit as the 880, but the window is not quite as large. Since I'm probabl...

As usual, I'm driving myself nuts comparing items before I actually pull the trigger and purchase. This time it's a welding helmet. I appreciate all of your earlier comments and recommendations. I just ran across this one, the Striker Supreme and it looks darned good for the price: http://www.usawel...

SPark: I looked at that one also. Sure had a lot of good reviews (591). Nic and SPark: With my old eyes (I'm almost 74) I need all the help I can get in not only seeing the pool but also where I'm going with it, so I'll probably go with a larger screen. I won't know for sure until I try it. SPark: I...

I'm looking for recommendations for a good auto-darkening welding helmet that will give me a better chance of actually "seeing" what I am attempting to weld. Under $100 if possible. Background: I purchased a MIG 175 welder from Eastwood's a few years back. It came with a "free" h...

I first heard of them as a solution to remove undercoating and/or soundproofing. Seems I've used one, but don't remember if I bought it or borrowed it. I haven't seen it in my shop unpacking, so must've borrowed it.

I think the slick availability varies from state to state in addition to regions of the country. There are/were almost none in Louisiana while they seem plentiful in neighboring states. I've gotten two of my trucks in Arkansas, two in Mississipi, and one in Alabama. I did find my original slick here...
