Icon7 New to the RF from IN

LOVE my ranger! Who here doesn't?
I'm it's 3rd owner. Granddad bought it 2 years old in 1991, and I inherited when he passed in '11. Any body's granddad from WW II era NOT keep their stuff mint? Oh, man, mine did. Interior mint, body has a little rust above the back wheels, and those little mirrors, poor little guys. Has a few scratches and only one minor dent in the pillar behind the driver's door.
Everything that's bolted down is original. Took off the camper shell he had to put in a tool box and tonnaeu cover. Put some running boards on it too. They look cool, but I could've done a better job hand cutting the brackets.

I'm joining with a few ideas in mind for the truck...
I want to find a vinyl bed liner for it. ('89 long bed).
Get better ideas on how to mount running boards.
Replace head gasket.
Find an original bug shield.
Use the forum for other inspirational ideas.

I'm excited to be here, and my girlfriend is laughing at me because of it. but she looks good riding shotgun so I may keep her there for a while lol.
Thanks in advance for the welcome!!
