    I replied to an ad here on Ratsun. This guy wanted to clear out a bunch of parts, and we came to a package deal for all he had. Pretty happy to find the fuzzies in the box of goodies

    Excellent progress on that trans. Nice to have that peace of mind knowing that all the internals are in great shape. re the window fuzzies- I just ended up with a set that came with a 521 parts stash I stumbled across. Any tricks to changing them out easily?

    I too have a 99 Silverado with high miles. 410000km which is slightly lower than yours. Best truck i ever owned i think. Bought it as a farm beater, but it drives so nice its now my daily. Uses NO oil, and runs like a top. Body is failing, but I'll drive til its dead. Could be a long wait...

    nice. You win! Is that trans removable without pulling the engine? I don't think I'd be able to worm my KA 5 spd trans out of mine very easily. I have looked at the frame to see how difficult it would be to make (or modify) a crossmember to be able to drop out for ease of servicing (and engine/trans combo install) I hate installing them separately and fighting to line things up. So far all I have done is look and ponder...

    That is so shitty. All that blood sweat and effort... hope you're all right yourself

    Lol! Where I'm from that would be rather improper. We're 45 min north of Auburn. Headed out here shortly en route to Bristol Conn, so pretty happy we don't have 2 feet

    Congrats to you and your wife! To echo mikec4193, fatherhood really is the best job ever. Best to you as the adventure begins. I’m actually in Maine at the moment, enjoying a proper snowstorm cheers

    the Moxie tribute is too cool! Lots of great memories with a wonderful old friend in Maine, and an ice cold glass of Moxie on the patio at 'camp' I do feel like the formula has changed since then. It seems sweeter and has less bite than I remember

    nice work! I love those kind of 'restore to new or better' projects. Love your truck btw

    Loren O's '72 521 -Found this out in the woods.

    So sad to see this. Glad to hear you're okay, but man, that sucks so much after all the blood sweat and tears you put into your sweet truck...
