Default Brush guard, ohc, dixie horn are on!

First saturday I haven't worked in a long time so I spent it working on the truck. First I went up to Michigan to a few junkyards to look for another ohc since the first two didn't work



my ohc collection



I tore them all apart and made one working, clean consol



finally works! and I stuck some of the headliner I cut out back up into the ceiling to bring it down a little so theres no gaps, looks factory



next I mounted the rest of my dixie horn, now I just need to wire it and it will be done





changed the oil for the first time





started painting the lids I got from the junkyard



then for the grand finale I put the brush guard on and then went out to take pictures of it























my entry for the truck contest



my entry for the no truck contest

Very nice pictures. But I agree the brush guard doesn't look right on it. But to each of it's own.

yea I'm not crazy aboat the brush guard either, but I got it real cheap and I just wanted somewhere to mount lights, so it'll be on there till I get a better one or just get sick of it.

It sits way to far away at the top

The thing hanging on the back is a deer carrier, I have it on there while I'm at school cause I work for the schools community bike program and use it to haul around bikes. It sucks I can't just throw them in the bed, but I store a bunch of stuff back there.

When I go home the cap and the deer carrier come off within the first ten minutes

----------

also the parts in front of the lights sit up way too high
