[UPDATE] New Project
#1
Hey guys I haven't been doing a lot of work on the mustang in about a month or so. Here's the reason why.

[Image: 104_4426.jpg]

It's my brother's, new to him, 1984 Ford F350 dump truck with a 351w. I did some regular maintenance including new plugs, wires, cap and rotor. Also, cleaned out the carb and replace a few internal components (not a full rebuild, more like a freshening up). I made a new battery ground, following a no start at a gas station. It broke down in a school parking lot and I had to replace the fuel pump on the spot, and put in a new pre-fuel pump inline fuel filter along with the one on the carb. The fuel tank selector solenoid doesn't work so I just bypassed it to run off of the front tank which is good because the rear tank leaks. Finally the bed/box was kind of rusty so I got a gallon of rust bullet and painted the sides and the back, so far.

Here's kind of what all of the side panels looked like before the rust bullet (I forgot to take before pics).

And here's what side panels look like.

I still have a little more painting to do and I have to fix the fuel gauge among other electrical issue.

Thanks for looking

Yeah, thanks to this site other wise I wouldn't have known about it. The only that kind of messed me up is to clean it up you need to use acetone and I didn't have any so I burned through two paint brushes.

I had a full size and a mini foam roller, but I also had two small brushes to get in the cracks and small detail things. Live a learn I guess.

Neat looking truck. It looks great with the new paint. Do the bed sides come off?...I couldn't quite figure out the several latches.

Yeah each panel comes off excluding the first one by the passenger door. They are all latched together, it's kind of a pain when you have a full load of dirt, woodchips, ect and you have to take off the two back panels. I might be modifying that and making a hinge setup. A little back story: It was originally a railroad truck in Ohio and was orange.

I ran out off rust bullet so I didn't quite finish the bed floor.
