replaced a ball joint. think cv shafts are on their way out. exhaust is leaking again. took a picture the other day.
also got this truck for free pretty much. it will be my new project. going to turn it into a trail truck.
79 f150 4x4 400 auto. needs floor pans, rockers, door work, fender work. bed is shot. might build a steel flatbed. frame is good. have not got it to run yet. cranks and gets fuel. havent checked spark. my end goal is lifted enough to fit 35-38in swampers on 15in wagon wheels. 4spd swap. paint it silverstone grey. going to make my own bumpers. bed line the whole inside floor. debating on bucket seats or bench. no hurry to fix it up. just going to be a slow build process.

The end is near.
Coilovers came off. Wheels came off. Tomorrow should be my last day with it. May be getting a 2018 tiguan. Test drive a 2013 Toureg V6 yesterday. It had 60k on it and they wanted $18k for it. It was clean but the motor was filthy. I doubt any maintenance was performed.
So the wife said let's just go with something new. Debated on a new GTI but have been spoiled with the mazda's AWD. The Golf Alltrack is also in the mix.
Either way I will be in another VW. Once we pay some more on our cx5 it will be traded in on a VW as well.

Wasn't sure about the color at first. Its growing on me. Would of liked white. I really want to do R-Line accents in black. US doesn't get that color in the rline.

Well mazda is gone. Wife took the tiguan so I needed a vehicle. Found this 17 alltrack SEL with DSG! So far it's a blast. The wife and I are set for cars for the next 10 years hopefully.
It will be dabadged soon, yellow lamin x on the fogs, and possibly getting the windows tinted.

Good Morning Fubar,
Congratulations on your new additions. I have 2 questions.

1. Do you have any mk5 parts you want to sell?

2. what is all the white stuff on and around your car?

Thanks,

wolfy
