    It is sweet! You scored!

    I added a lumber rack to my crappy little S-10 and it improved its usefulness 100x!
    Especially for all of those random Home Depot runs.

    with the longbed, I hope I don't need a rack like that but yeah I can see the utility there.

    When are you peeling off the "period appropriate" graphics?

    Oh he'll no. Those always looked silly, even back in the day they were the butt of many a joke.

    no way dude. those stripes are SUPER rare in the condition they're in. They 100% stay. It's part of the SR5 package which is now quite sought after [think S package on your e21].

    drove it to work today... 25 miles each way.

    the oil was leaking enough that I decided that I certainly didn't do the valve cover gasket properly, so I popped in and picked up another kit. this one [fel-pro] came with the 4 grommets whereas the Stone brand that came from autohausaz did not. however, the stone gasket was molded to shape with curves, whereas the fel-pro was like a big black rubber band.

    so, I used the stone big gasket, the fel-pro grommets and end seals [seemed better quality/fit] and the stone pcv grommet and hurrah, no more leaks.

    I put 1/2 can of seafoam in the crankcase, thoroughly sprayed out the carb, smoked it all clean around the block a couple of times and now she runs like new. I am stoked.

    next up - fix this noisy exhaust
    it amazes me I can get a nice quality header for $140

    Not like the S, like the Alpina


    And I would peel that crap off too. Ugly is ugly, even if it is rare.

    Nice deal for the header! I'm going to have to pick up an old Toyota!

    period correct graphics on a period correct vehicle is usually a good thing

    yeah I was looking at that one too. if I go that route i'll have to have a system bent up. considering it's all original and I can't find a bolt-on replacement setup, I might end up going this route in the long run.

    Too bad its not DEQ immune! Then you should run some side pipes

    It's mostly deq immune... from what I understand all I get is a tailpipe test.
    I gather I can do anything under the hood as long as it runs clean.

    I hate it. its huge, its top heavy and because of it I can't transport a motorbike

    once its gone, I'm gonna line the bed floor with stable/stall matting
    wilco has 'em on sale right now 4x8 for like $45 each I'll need 2
    this gives me bed protection and some needed weight over the rear axle

    before



    after



    I made a friend and gained a nice oldschool heavy rubber bed mat out of the deal. Good times.

    plus, some random item showed up on his cab's roof, and the coffee cup moved on your truck
