I have never owned or worked on a truck in my life. but I have always wanted to learn how to restore and maintain an old truck. So I found this old ’87- got it on the cheap since it was rusted up pretty bad. Spent my winter nights (and many days) working in my shop up north in Canada. I learned to weld and do bodywork. Patched both fenders, both sides of the floorpans, the firewall, both cab corners and even the roof.
I replaced all rusted parts and gave it a needed tune-up. I stripped the entire truck back down to bare metal and gave it a new paint job (first time using a paint-gun). It runs like a dream and I am mighty proud of the outcome! It was about 300 hrs of first time experiences and I cherished every minute.
