Fresh paint and new color. I am loving it. Need to blacken more trim pieces this weekend. I was planning on a combo of black and chrome, but the black just looks so much better to me.
Oh....I LIKE that!
Your rig looks like the one that I saw yesterday in Everett/Lynnwood, Wa.My ongoing saga....slowly, but surely. I swear that whoever had mine last knew how to make things work, but not how to fix anything.
So, the belt situation is better, we think. The alternator bracket was bent, and the belt now runs on an even plane. The power steering belt now seems a little skewed, but it seems to be staying in place.
We got the oil leaks fixed, we hope. More tightening and adjusting - valve covers were seated for the third time (I think my new mechanic is finding out that my previous guys took short cuts). They also fixed the manifold leak. This car runs much better, and smoother. I had it up to 105 mph today without too much struggle (the engine never tops 3000 rpm,)
Lastly, I had decided it was time to deal with the different sized rims. I replaced the old Cragars with a set of matching ION Alloy 71 rims. The car now rides better, as well.

looks very close but the color inside the bed is different. that one is black and his is white. otherwise they do look nearly identical.Your rig looks like the one that I saw yesterday in Everett/Lynnwood, Wa.
I got a photo and posted it yesterday afternoon in the "Elkys spotted out and about".
your elkie has been rear-ended 4 times while you've been driving it?Spent the morning at the junkyard. Found a 16" temporary spare off a GMC Sonoma. Took a section of each bed side & taillights. (I've been rear ended 4 times) I have the blank roll pan, to replace the bumper.
It does look close, but not mine. We were in Tennessee this week, and mine was in the shop getting a little work done.
