Oh snap, I forgot to upload the pic from yesterday.
Like a dang glove.
The roof is next for paint removal. The remaining rust is getting cleaned and patch welded. Gotta make another payment because heâ€™s getting ready to start the skim coats of filler, then primer. Dare I say the end near? He wants to do the door frames, and windows first so we can install the glass and interior, then the large areas will be blended in.
Not van related, but Iâ€™m beating up my daily driver trying to haul parts all the time. The van was originally going to be a hauler but now sheâ€™s just a street machine in waiting. I went onto OfferUp and found a work truck. One owner, 1984 F150, 117k original miles, 302, aod transmission. I am beyond stoked.
The emissions equipment is all present, Iâ€™m going to flush the fuel systems, replace the hoses, and lines, then fire her up to see what Iâ€™m working with. The engine spun freely and we cranked it today with a battery and starting fluid. Not bad for being parked for 10 years. I donâ€™t plan to change anything on it other than the cracked bubbles and maybe a water tight Venturi Vent. ðŸ˜‚
Needs some new door panels and rubber.
Other than that, sheâ€™s perfect. So itâ€™s time to sell all my spare parts in order to get her running and reliable, then off goes my daily driver to market. Itâ€™s a shame because thatâ€™s another nice car. A 1995 Lincoln Continental, fully loaded with 72k miles. Very rare color combination and clean.
