I treated my rusty bed with Corroseal. It was pretty rusty.
At some point I am going spray in a bed liner.  8)

Digging around in my inner fender wall yesterday I found the original jack instructions sticker.
I know it may seem kinda dumb but I think it's cool.  8)

For real.
I still had to look at it very carefully to understand how it mounts.  ;D

A while back I got new fancy finned aluminum valve covers to replace the stock ones. I didn't like the hardware that came with them so, I improvised and bought some new bolts that would work with my spark plug wire managers. After a little while I noticed that they were blowing a little oil out of the bolt holes.
Can't have that. I pulled all the bolts and put some little rubber washers under each one.
Just one more little thing.  8)

Clever- Wires look clean!  8)

Are those heads Vortec?

Couldn't tell from pics, Don't know of stock or replacement valve covers having bolts on the top.

Yeah, our engine swap was for a mid 90's vortec that was rebuilt stock.
It just has an aluminum dual plane intake, the stock Quad and 2.5" headers.
It's not "camming" or anything but it runs great.  8)

I installed a wooden after market steering wheel for a custom but classic look.
Purists don't hate me.  ;D
Plus I got my horn working after a couple of years of it not working.  8)

I thought about that same wheel...if it weren't for the heat of AZ, I'd have gone that way.   8)

Yeah, I like it better that some of the other options out there.
It looks like an old Corvette or classic muscle car wheel.  8)

Did you get the Dash and the seatcover from the same vendor?

I did actually.
I don't think any of them have uniform colors.
The colors didn't match very well from the factory either.  ;D
