    Okay so I got busy yesterday...Plunked in starter and battery, poured a little gas down the carb and it fired right up. Put 3L of ATF into it and it drove too.:thumbs:

    Got a little info on it...350/350 combo, NP205 ( I think gear driven but not 100% sure yet) Corp 14 out back and a Dana 44 up front. Its on 285/75 R16s with a 3" body lift( gonna add suspension lift sooner or later to fit 37-38s). Put it back on trailer to take it to my work shop so I can get after the roof repairs and the bodywork.:)
    Expect moar peektures!:tmc: But for now heres a few to keep you occupied.

    Should be good! How do you repair the roof? Do you just have to beat it out or replace the whole roof?

    I'm gonna try to massage the roof back out...if that dont work I'll find a donor roof skin. I have a neighbor who owns a glass shop so my window will be cheap ( I have incriminating photos:skull:)
