  1. Thanks, for the responses and knowledge.
  2. So not necessarily something to be overly concerned about?...
  3. I planned on doing a 2 piece gasket like mine had, but I'm still interested in the glass cost/fit. Especially since I'm a good year behind you in progress.
  4. Pulled the head off yesterday, manually turned the crank and verified everything is moving with pistons and valves. That was great news for a truck that was parked in '73. Otherwise engine history is unknown. All the exhaust valves are white with a chalk like substance. Input please?
  5. I agree, they have all stopped by and asked about it. We do our best to clean up the driveway and keep everything either in the garage, or stored under a tarp on the side or back of house. Also fortunate to not have a HOA in my neighborhood.......
  6. No broken bolts or issues either.
  7. The Arizona dirt is everywhere, and doing a good job of making a mud trail down the driveway and street.
  8. When I was stationed in Japan, those things ran around everywhere non-stop. I never tried to get my 6'5" self into one though. Another lesson learned with them was 4 "in the bag sailors" can pick one up and move into a questionable parking spot at the corner of a building.
  9. Finally getting started on my C1, and I've searched the forum, watched 48Dodger's youtube videos, looked through the manual I have too. Just trying to figure out all the main attachment points I need to make sure I get removed, before rounding up extra hands to pull it off. Does the radiator support have to come out with it all? Any tricks or gotcha's that I should know about? Any, and all insight is appreciated. Thanks Eric
  10. Still in the teardown process, but trying to plan ahead. I've used the search function with no luck. I'm curious if any one has added wireless door lock actuators to their trucks? The universal kits I've found seem to be straight forward in operation on a 12V system, and getting the wires through the door jam isn't an issue either. Sample Just looking for some input. Thanks. Eric
  11. Seat is there, no covering though, also missing passenger side glass. It had a few layers of wood in the bed with a spare laying back there, no fluids other than oil. I'm finding out that I was probably taxed for a couple hundred pounds of Arizona dirt that has been collecting in every possible corner, nook, and cranny possible. Got a bug last night and started hosing stuff down after ripping the wood out, driveway now has a dried desert running down it. Plus it has that monster rear bumper on it from it's farm life.
  12. Finally got the majority of projects at the house wrapped up, so we pulled the truck of my in-laws property yesterday. Got it weighed 3320#, dropped it at the house and headed to the DMV, was an out of state purchase that required multiple different items to get a clear CO title. With that being said and done, the banging of knuckles began.
  13. The one installed is dry rotted in other spots like the windshield is. I'm in the same boat with the door seals though.
  14. Here's what I plan on using all my fixed glass: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NL48HSE/?coliid=I2YP270WU5A2YG&colid=2U54QLMAVKE8H&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it I'll probably find a universal door weather seal too, gonna have to bite the bullet with vent windows and roll up though. just my 2 cents. My current windows all have this style:
