    This truck did great doing small lots and driveways. The cab was going from rust, but the engine had a crack in the back of the block that was leaking oil pretty bad. That's what started the rebuild.

    Will update as I go. Not sure if I should paint the cab red to match my other two red fords or keep the charcoal grey. I think the grey looks good with the black flatbed. What are your thoughts?

    Whenever I ride my streetbike I wear a bright colored shirt, to increase visibility for safety. Red will catch another motorist's eye before grey will, possibly giving you a very very slight chance that someone will see you and avoid an accident or something. Just one thing to consider, plus you will match the other trucks.:redbounce

    Thanks. Yes I did a frame up on that truck. Owned it for 12 yrs and sold it 2 years ago. That's what it looked like when I sold it.

    Painted the cab today. Couple of runs, but not bad for a landscaper.

    Next step is to go over engine. Going to put on a new head gasket, timing stuff and all new gaskets and seals.
