    Hello all, been a while since I have posted on here but today I have good reason. Trailered home the newest addition, a pretty much rust free 80. Here is how she looks.

    worst problems seems to be the lighting wiring not sure it the lower lights replace the stock on the rears I think I will turn the holes into reverse lights. Anyone know of a light that may work there for reverse lights?

    I have no plans for it yet probly going to get it running stopping and everything working good then move on to making it look good...

    Defroster, Vent, Throttle and you are missing the Choke knob.

    If those are standard 4" holes below the brake/tailights that use a spring wire to keep the red lens in place just substitute a clear lens. Any truck stop or dealer, like Rush Peterbilt westside of ABBQ, will have them. They are even made in LEDs now.
