    I cleaned up the headliner today. All the pieces were in fairly good shape except for one and it was broken in half. Bows looked good too. Took the grinder to it and the old girl cleaned up pretty good. For some reason I still can't get the back window to operate. T-All Inside Roof.jpg T-All Inside Roof 2.jpg

    I bought 6 sections of floor pans today, 3 for the driver's side and 3 for the passenger from IH Parts. They should be here by the end of the week. $500 ouch!

    Floor pans came in today. The adventure should start on Monday. BTW, I ordered these pans from IH Parts and so far have been impressed. First with how quickly they were shipped and delivered and Secondly, how heavy duty the pans are. These should last longer than the original ones. (with proper care).

    Here's my 68 T-ALL with new floor pans. I'm hoping this will last me for at least 50 years! I bought the floor pans that were already pre-formed and even though I was impressed with the thickness of the steel, they didn't form very well at all. Next time I think I would buy flat metal and form it myself. The back seat floor pans are in pretty good shape although I'm going to spend the money and get POR 51.

    It seems like someone on here mentioned buying sheetmetal and making your own panels.

    I know, I should have listened to wise advice. Not only would it have been less trouble but a whole lot cheaper too. BTW, who was that who said it? :)

    I have a question about my LST. For some reason I thought it would give the color of the truck? My didn't so I was just wondering if that's normal or not?

    I see it, thanks! It looks like 801-20 Gray. I didn't know they made a gray back then.

    The original gray on your firewall almost looks like the gray they used on the earlier dash panels.

    Line Ticket Sheet.jpg Here is my LTS and was wondering if someone could give me information on what kind of rear end does it have? Also the color says it's "gray." It is just "gray" or is there another name for it?
    Thanks,
    Joe

    Noticed your truck came with a winch :1eye: did you ever take a peek for a pto unit ?
    Always seemed like your truck was ordered for a government or municipality .... GSA answers that question

    It's been awhile since I've posted but I got my front and back seat reupholstered. Here's the front seat. Something I'm really proud of is the design in the middle is actually from the original seat. They cut it out and painted it. The color of the new seat is very close to the original. I believe the upholster did an excellent job and very pleased with the whole thing. I would have it installed but too many projects going on. The back seat has the same design as the front.
