Time for some shots of the '88 again!

May sound lame, but I put new windshield wipers on it the other day - I think the ones I took off must have been original to the truck lol! Then today I washed it and painted the grill and window pillar things with plasti dip as they were both very faded. Next I plan to replace the felt weather stripping on the windows because it's all cracked and brittle. Small steps but I'm getting there with it.

Yes 351w with the ZF5. They are definitely not easy to find in decent shape these days that's for sure.

Looks great! Some wider tires would definitely set it off.

Looks good! Get some 285's on there. I'm still on the hunt for similar trucks around here...they're all rotten though.
