Keep up the good work! Despite his quickly driving it hard enough to require a little head work, he loved it. But he really didn't seen to interested so I forgot about it to. That evening, an nasty hailstorm. After more than there will be some work to do here if the next owner wanted to clean things up a bit. I want to put 33's on it and maybe a 4 inch lift, and paint it black like my dads old truck.
But When we tried to get it out of gear it came right out, must had just had strain on it. A cheap Japanese pickup would be half the price. So around august of this year I decided to go over and look at it. But my dads friend who works at the shop we got it towed to, he told me what it needed to get running, he said that it sounds great and the trans shifts perfectly.

Also got the old fender off and put the one that I got from the junkyard on it.
Been seeing a Dodge power ram that has been sitting in a parking lot for years now behind a shopping center. For the spray on top you can do it but the only reason I did it is because I have not put the bed on yet so it has been fading in the sun. I eased back to my office smiling to myself. Army fleet purchase, that explains it. Got it towed home yesterday. And for how much to sand down just look at my pictures of the frame before I painted it to see how much rust you should leave.
But the paint that I used will Not Stick if you get the frame too clean it needs some of the rough rust to stick too. Part of the problem was that the cruise control which works in dry weather but often not in moist air was not working, and I got carried away. Yea its alot of fun its coming together pretty good now, and I'm fine with him working on the truck. Yea its really starting to come together now. My late relatives all lived in Vandalia. In short order, these are installed making the old girl much more pleasant to look at, even if she was a tri-tone. I don't have any major tools or space, just looking to paint the frame as painlessly as possible.
About 2 years of just looking to the back of the lot and saying, hey look at that old dodge truck back there. It was auctioned off in 1991 with 11,000 miles. I'm so jealous you have a family of Ol' Dodges! The top edge of the tailgate had rusted away, I can only assume it has spent a lot of time lowered with water trapped inside. Sold the bed, getting a flatbed frame welded up soon, then throwing in some nice stained wood. Then about 2 months ago we just happened to be in Hatboro and he was with us so I told him he has to go back and see it up close, Since he didn't believe me that it was the np435 trans.
Both of them looked pretty dinged up; the old Dodge was pristine. Has a slight miss, so i'm gonna get new plugs wires cap rotor, etc. Anyway, I really want to paint my frame. But I am doing the frame on my Ramcharger too without taking anything off, just sitting under it and using the scraper, and the drill wire brush, lying on my back under the truck. I credit most of that to its low gearing and low-end torque that would allow it to idle through almost anything without any help from my foot.
I pop the hood to find the 360 doing its best imitation of a slant six by sitting off-kilter. As I am standing on the bed blasting through 19 years of grime, I look up to see the walls of the carwash are as black as tar from the floor to the ceiling. I have a first gen mighty max with 208,xxx on it now and it just goes and goes. Still have to put a patch on the bed. He said the only reason that he would want that truck is because it has that transmission in it, the same one his 89 had. So me, him, and my friend drove over in my Ramcharger to put a note on it.
Love these things, mines hauled 2000lbs of scrap metal on a 2000lb home-made trailer with 1000 more lbs in the bed back in high school. Looking at the 4 barrel 360 5. They looks sweet takin' the road over. When I finish, I back out to hose down the wall. To make a long story short, I told them the guys probably just gonna throw the note away, lets just find the owner. I fixed the hole in the floor with a piece of sheet metal from having the furnace replaced, a handful of rivets, and caulk.
This got the Accord out from under a carport. It should be a fun summer project for me and some friends. If anything, actively seek out the uncool. One day I had the urge to take the Dodge to work. I'm actually one of the kids watching him , kid with grinder do all the work! And what is less cool than a plain-wrapper ex-government truck with mismatched everything? Still, pretty obvious, it took it well.
