Definitely a great start. I do like the build and dream of the days I can add a SB to my collection, along with a crew cab.

I've been on vacation since the 17th, but the kiddos went with my parents on Monday so finally had some real chances to work on the truck

I was gonna start replacing the leaking power steering hoses and valve cover gaskets

But i found a giant rats nest under the battery and behind the distributor, so i ended up cleaning out rat crap for like 6hrs, finally got the engine bay cleaned up and power washed, it's looking pretty great.

I found why the valve covers were leaking so bad, previous owner cranked the living daylights out of the bolts and completely squished the gaskets out  >:(

I started scrubbing and power washing the lower front end and sprayed it with undercoating
