There is a lesson in this thread and truck about how to turn a real survivor into something awesome. Through constant repairs/upgrades and modifications, without ever really stopping using the truck, it has become an amazing Hot Rod. Without ever really losing the original character of what you bought in the first place. Hopefully anyone who finds themselves in that position, of having a real survivor, will be able to identify and use this as a guideline of how to do it "right" using real Ford parts. Sorry to keep doting over your truck, but this one really does it for me.
