Doodle 631 - Random Parts

Tonight I mounted the bumper on the truck, changed out a bunch of dead bulbs, switched the fuel and air filters, and did some carburetor tuning.  Now I just need to find some license plate lights for that new bumper.

Doodle 630 - Newish Bumper

In about a week I’m going to be driving my ’86 Chevy pickup back home to my dad’s farm, so I really need to get it road worthy over the next week.  First and foremost was getting a rear bumper on it.  My old bumper lost a tug-of-war with a extremely well rooted bush a few years back.  My friend Tim headed out with me to the local “parts garden” (junk yard) and we found a willing donor.  $46 dollars later and I’ve got me a bumper plus a free bumper sticker.

Doodle 490 - Fixing My Truck

For Father’s day weekend, I finally got my ’86 Chevy Pickup running again.  She needed a new carburetor and the gas in the tank needed to get siphoned out.  I was giddy as a little kid when she started up again.  I got this truck 15 years ago in high-school, and have no intentions of getting rid of it.  She ain’t that pretty, but I still love her!  The boys love going for rides in her too!
