More deconstruction of my poor truck today.

I also went over and worked on the LeMans as well. It should be running soon.

Spent several hours working on getting the truck apart. Still so much to do, I'm being extremely careful, trying to save every little piece that I can. You never know when you'll need a bolt or clip of some sort.

Spent a big chunk of the day polishing up my wheels, then swapping them onto the replacement truck. What an attitude adjustment, the picture speaks for itself. Spruced up the old work truck nicely.

Those tires and wheels are perfect for that truck! Looks great.

Thanks. Somehow, as a side benefit... it rides smoother too. Not sure how, I went from a 16" wheel with 265/70-16s to 18" wheels with 265/60-18s front & 275/60-18s rear. Less sidewall, and heavier wheel and tire combo.

I towed the Chevelle home from my neighbor's house yesterday. Worked on the old motorhome Saturday and Sunday so I can sell it. Details to follow in another thread.
