My 1972 F250 project

05 gt 5spd

On the road again
Not many miles on the truck this year - just 190 !
Filled with Premium, some stabilizer added- a short drive to mix it up and now parked for the winter.
A set of newer rims gone for sandblast and paint - and then a set of tires - a few tweaks and I’ll be ready for 2021 season.

Started to work on some projects - Dad had made some brackets for the front wheel mud flaps but 40 years of salt took their toll.

Started building replacement brackets - a bit of welding - a donated bed frame and some paint and the two brackets are done. I found some aluminum checker plate and made two guards - not sure yet if they will stay shiny or go dark - once paint is dry the final install pictures will post.

I picked up a set of rims early last spring to replace the 2 piece wheels that came on the truck in 72. The “new to me “ wheels finally went off for sand blast and primer, returned on Saturday. Now time for final paint on the rims and some new tires to hit the road 2021 and beyond.
