Purchased in late Nobember a 1997 Ford F-250 tire service truck with a hydraulic lift gate from where I work .
It was used in a rail yard to service semi trailer chassis
An ECM (computer ) , spark plugs ,plug wires , EGR solenoid , multiple vacuum hoses and coolant temp sensor later it was running .
Also replaced both bent hood hinges .
Nabbed everything but the plugs ( had some ) from pick - n - pull junkyard for $41

The day after Christmas we had a warm 55 degree day after a 25 degree start .
Got the Earl Scheib paint gun out ,
A gallon of black Rustoleum and a gallon of acetone both disappeared that afternoon

Took the buffer to the project Ford and got rid of all that black air pollution and chalking in the paint on the cab



Traded an old Nitrous Oxide kit sitting in my garage for 4 nice load range E tires
Cost me a takeout Chinese food lunch to get all 4 tires dismounted & mounted up Very Happy




Put on all new reflective DOT tape, before the Monsoon Rains hit us



Still need to fix inside heater controls - has defrost and floor vent only , windshield washers don't work ,replace or paint front bumper , paint wheels , fix exhaust - its bent , maybe add some cab lights ..
