Starting this just because I miss forums and am stoked to be working on something again. Browsing CL one night I stumbled upon a listing with some bad photos and not much of description, reached out to the guy and turned out he was 10 min from me. Met up the next day and made a deal on the truck. It’s an ‘86 Pickup 22r 4 spd 250k miles bone stock and I’m the 3rd owner. The guy I got it from did a good amount of maintenance to it and only used it a handful of times for random projects. It was filthy when I got it so I washed, clay barred, buffed and waxed the paint to see what kind of results I could get. After way to long I was surprised to see the paint actually shine up pretty good. Photos don’t really do it justice but the paint is like glass now and it’s no longer an off-white. The tires were dry rotted so I found some 185/60/14 Goodyears online and had them mounted the other day. As much as I like the wheels, the smaller tire size doesn’t look that great and it’s also made the highway RPMs too high to drive at a safe speed so I’ll be ditching the 14” and replacing them with a set of 16” Lincoln Town Car wheels. That’s about it for right now. I have a bunch of new parts waiting to go on. I’ll be ordering drop spindles and blocks to lower it. Continue to clean it up. Overall plan for the truck is a to be a decent daily. I’d love to eventually motor swap it but that won’t be anytime soon. For now I’ll do what I can with the 22r.
