The boys and I took the truck to church this morning and Momma met us there. (since we can only fit three people in the cab) It ran great and stayed nice and cool so the new thermostat is doing it's job. This afternoon I got the buffer out and Nathaniel and I took to shinning up the old girl. He's six years old and into cars and trucks and wants to help whenever I'm working on one. It's amazing how nice the paint is. I made a couple of discoveries while buffing it. It looks like the hood was repainted at some point, and it is thinner then on the rest of the truck. The right left fender has been touched up just ahead of the wheel well as well, so I think a repair of some sort was done years ago. I'll have to ask Grandpa about it. He may not remember though. Yesterday when I was working on it he asked me if he had purchased the truck new, because he couldn't recall. All shinned up: It really looks good. I would say it's better than a 20 footer, more like a 7 and a half footer.
