    I thought that was Stephen King.

    Anyway, poor Mark wants a happy thread about his project, ya clowns.

    I wasn't telling anything poor, and I definitely didn't include clowns.

    Which is what Mark will do with that crystal clear new windshield if he isn't careful. There, re-tracked the thread.

    Having a hard time getting the paint to match. I should have brought spray instead of the brush bottle. It's much darker than original paint but it's the right paint code 6p, at any rate I added some white paint to the bottle. It's better now but I am still experimenting with it.

    Well I am finally getting back to my projects. I had to deal with my father's health issues and other life events.
    I am in the process of putting the new camshaft in the white 77. I should have the manifold and timing cover back on tomorrow. Don't know if I will keep it or not, I will decide after I see how it runs.
    Going to get the windshield done in the other truck probably next week.

    I put the new camshaft, water pump, fuel pump, belts, and hoses on. I got her fired up and was pleasantly surprised by how good it sounds. I have decided that this is the one I am keeping. The body is in better shape and I like the two tone black and white. So now I am shopping for tires and wheels.

    That is a sharp rig. Some turbines would sharpen that blade.

    I removed the instrument cluster from the parts truck and it dissinagrated. I needed to get to the heater control out so I didn't need the cluster anyway. If anyone needs the gauges let me know you can have them for whatever it costs to ship.

    I would not be able to do anything until I get home from vacation, around the 9th of next month; Aquartlow, if you're willing to let the two items I requested go, I'll not make claim on all the other items.
