    Thats cool, now you can hang your spare tire on the trailer instead of in the bed.

    Yeah one of the truckers live out in that area. We likely will all be at the last Cruise In at Chick Fila on October 29th @ Providence Shopping Center.

    Griz your truck is looking real good.

    Hey Eli, I got some new wheel cylinders at Napa and a dual circuit master cylinder/power booster from Ebay. I just bench bled the m/c today and should be installing it all here next week.

    Good to hear, from what I understand being able to stop is a pretty good thing. :D Drove my F1 over to the in-laws last Monday, the furthest that truck has driven since the mid '80s. Wouldn't shift out of first though, either a modulator or governor problem. Got all the new lenses and bulbs in, looks purty when all lit up. Will post a pic when I get one.

    Welcome to the sight. Nice rides guys!:cool:
     
  14. Looks like a good start. Welcome to the HAMB!

    If you don't have running boards start looking now instead of when you actually need them. They're kinda hard to find in useable condition.

    NICE!
    allright another 223 guy...

    Hey you F1 guys, what type of radiator overflow tanks have you used? I need to put one in my '51 but there ain't much room, hoping someone has a cool solution. I don't really want to use a generic plastic one if at all possible.

    on a F-100, I used a vacuum canister from an 80's ford, looks like an old 48 oz juice can.
    Fab'd up an aluminum bracket and mounted it to the rad support.
