Nice work man!

I'm digging into a 1980 C-10 right now, I like what you did with the LED's.

Why did you remove the AC? Do you live in Cold Country?

Some scrap wood, a little ingenuity, and Bam! the front porch is now a cooler place to hang-out.

Got my new shoes today. Been eyeing these for some time to go on sale. Staggered set, 275/40/20  245/40/20. My wheels of choice are a different story. Everyone I have checked with are out of stock. The last guy I talked with called the manufacturer directly and they told him the wheels are 90 days out. That's cool. Meanwhile, the house smells like a rubber factory.........That's cool too.

The oil-fill plug on my differential is seized up. I heated it up, and even used a hammer and punch, without any luck. So, I opted to get a cover with the "oil fill plug".

There are lots of covers on the market advertised as having the "oil drain" plug. Be careful selecting which one you purchase. This pic is the factory cover showing the original oil line in the diff.

I used a straight piece of metal rod to show the cover advertised as an "oil fill" plug. You can see this cover will allow me to fill the diff.

Nice work! I like your attention to detail. When I saw those perfectly bent brakes lines I knew. Also liked the Lennon quote, have the same thing tattooed on my ribcage. Keep up the good work

Also replaced the dime-store battery disconnect that was in the truck with this unit.
