The floor and firewall don't heat up too bad. That top is a scorcher though

I bought the clear side markers on eBay because mine were so weathered they were brittle and nearly lost all the amber coloring

I felt like it was too much chrome and white with no contrast so I plasti-dipped the grill black.



I also became one of those dickheadz that put lawn edge on their trucks for flares... Only to beat a ticket . It's temporary. So I think the grill kinda broke up all the white too.

Where did you get it? Please let us know what kind of MPG you are getting after you get it dialed in.

She's lookin' good!

AutoZone. They have an eBay account and I did the best offer thing at exactly 50 bucks under what they did in store and won it.

Pulling all the smog shit and feedback stuff has my MPG approaching 20. Hard to tell exactly with the bigger tires but it's at least 18 MPG.

I've read on the forum guys getting mid 20s but I just don't see it. My top end is rebuilt and I stay out of the pedal and can't quite get 20

nice looking rig with the "perfect combo" I6 and manual. 'same' as my F150 but with computer crap still.

Its your rig but I do miss the egg crate grill over the tube style you have now. I think it really defined the style of that era rig.

Looks great with the bigger 33's and nice touch with the painting interior.
Would like to have some of that southern heat here right now.

edit:
AZ cops are that big of DHs? I know here there is no need for flares unless the tread part of the tire (road hitting surface) sticks beyond the furthest point of the fender lip. Doesn't look like yours make it to that point...? A buddy of mine hauls a copy of the regulation in his truck as most cops don't know it well enough to enforce it properly. Has saved him a couple tickets having it in print on him over the officers guess. Still gets a seatbelt ticket though as he doesn't wear it as a habit. go figure.

Having a 5.0 myself I would agree. I would rather go to the 300 or 351. 460 even. the 302 to me in stock form is too gutless for such a heavy truck.

So...Baby steps. In the spirit of cheap I had put rubber coat over all the crappy spots the had worn through and painted it red. The fix was like 6 or 8 bucks. It was wasted. It lasted 6 months before cracking.

I am eyeing the jeff bronco rubber kit but it be 300 bucks, so in the mean time I cut up our old rubber mats at work and heated them to shape of the trans tunnel hump and arc of firewall and suck.

Cost was again 6 or 8 bucks and a half a Saturday to do it. It doesn't look great, but it doesn't look bad and I can still just hose it off if it gets too muddy.

We shall see how it holds up. Anyone got experience with the rubber kits?



Got my scratch headliner up. It's a 3/4 styrofoam sheet with several 5/8 long dowls I cut down and glued to the top. That gives it a pocket between the fiberglass and my foam. That's what really helps R value. There isn't much to bite to on these tops so the metal strips suspending the sheet are barely dug into top. There are a couple long molds on fiber glass that I think we're intended to hold up a headliner.... But I'm not sure because I haven't seen one that had one.

I used two urethane moldings that I could bend to the curves of the back and front of caps to hold the sheet. The top is still removable that way. They were something like this I found a scrap of long enuff to fit the bill

Ignore the bunch by the back window. I just tucked it in. I'm covering the whole thing in dirt cheap vinyl I got on Amazon that's close to the porno red OG interior

Can't touch the price on the vinyl

I started lining the hollow ass doors with fake dynamat too



It's the left overs from the headliner I did in cab. The inside of the doors was super dirty so I had to scrub em with denatured alcohol to clean em enough for the insulation to stick. I got pics coming of the completion hopefully by this weekend it's done

It shocks me how light and flimsy the doors are. If I get in a wreck I hope they don't hit the door.

Here is the flooring and headliners. Also have the classy solution of fixing the visors with binder clips.

So I have the headliners in... Just gotta vinyl wrap the rear on (shell) I repainted my junkyard console flat black and put a lil arm rest since I have he low back base model seats. I used a piece of foam that I shaped and wrapped a piece of foam around. I can't see so I cut a piece of wood for the bottom and wrapped the vinyl over it using a staple gun.

I decide not to attach the console back to the floor because I can move it in and out for more room. If I go wheeling I'll just pull it out.

I am also going to run a house outlet and all the iPod crap as well as a 4 port USB through an opening in the bottom so I can still move it out but all is hidden
