It's crazy the conversations these vehicles start with strangers when pumping gas "Uh...excuse me....what is that?"
Thank you! I saw your post on this morning about starting your build, I'm looking forward to it!

I see by the sticker on the tailgate cover that the truck was sold at one point by a dealer about 40 miles from me. No longer open though.

Missed it until I checked out the thread at your link.

I'm not sure I would order stuff from Tabco given the issues you wrote about.

I was feeling bad about cutting the rust free quarter panels off of mine, but then I had a blow out and bend one up.
So that took a little weight off my conscious.

Sweet build!

Gotta have the love for the 80-86 bullnose! One of the nicer years in my opinion

Great work on your restoration .


What scares me about this thread is facing the possible reality of my '94 having similar cancer. Your thread clearly illustrates some serious cancer/rust possibilities of our FSBs. Ignorance is bliss !

Both my rear upper wheelwell lips have extensive rust similar to yours and the base of all 4 corners have various degrees of rust as well. AM fiberglass quarter panels are definitely in my future.

Nice to see someone converting TO a bullnose, rather than the other way around.

Got it out of winter storage a week ago, and drove it out to school. In the past week I have replaced the IAC, fixed some bulbs that were not working, added a temporary pinstripe to match the existing paint job better, painted the fuel door to match the quarters, replaced the drivers door hinge pin and bushings, and painted some stuff with POR15 that we didn't have time to get last year.

New IAC



Old one sitting next to the box



Pinstripe



Fuel door



My new polyurethane body mounts showed up the other day too! Turned in 3 core batteries I got for free, and used my employee discount, and ended up only paying $35 for them! I will probably only replace the rubber radiator mounts for now, and maybe do the other ones later. I also ordered the metal mount patches from JGB the other day.



I've been spraying these crusty looking mounts everyday with PB Blaster

Holy shit those mounts look bad. I do love a centurion though. I almost bought one with a 460 for 3k. Still kicking myself in the teeth for passing that up. How much did the poly body mounts set you back?

I work at an auto parts store, so with my discount they were about $65, but I turned in 3 batteries I got for free, and that dropped the price down to $35. A quick Ebay search says the Energy Suspension brand kit (which I have) is about $80. The Prothane Motion Control brand kit is about $55.

I didn't realize it when I ordered these, but they are just for the cab and front clip. But that's alright because I only plan on replacing the core support mounts right now.
