Thank you for posting. Nice work.

That's really interesting how the paint was preserved under that scale.

While I was cleaning underneath the truck I had to take out the fuel tank out and do some repairs.
There was a baffle inside that was loose so I roset welded it back in and resealed the repair with solder like the factory welds were.

The seal between the cab and tank may need replacing, what do you think. Haha.

The tank cleaned up really well. A quick check of the sender and it back together with the cleaned up mounting hardware.https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-SjRxKcw/0/17552bf6/X2/i-SjRxKcw-X2.jpghttps://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-4BbKtxp/0/a45efa32/X2/i-4BbKtxp-X2.jpghttps://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-bMdgrTk/0/359af9c8/X2/i-bMdgrTk-X2.jpghttps://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-skD9PPx/0/34ac314b/X2/i-skD9PPx-X2.jpg

I have added signal lights to the truck, but I made a separate loom but still looks like original wiring.

I wanted it to be removable (for whatever reason).

I finally got around to getting the wiring in the old truck but first I had to clean the drivers side frame rail so I had a clean area for the wiring.

I was amazed, after some liberal scrubbing, how nice the paint still was.

My Mother made up a book of our family history and farming was a way of life until the 1970ies.

Here is the Fargo at work and another shot of our family friends who helped in the harvest.
Maybe somebody here could I.D. what the other truck is.

I found a cool old waterslide decal and decided to put it in the back window as the view through the windshield is small enough without and additional clutter. Regina is the capitol city of the province of Saskatchewan and the training centre for our Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) as well as where the Fargo would have been shipped to for distribution in Saskatchewan.

I brazed up a barbed fitting in the coolant line to hook up the heater as well.

I am part way through the wire but there is much more fitting to do.

Here is the view on the engine side of the firewall where the steel pipes/mounts for the heater poke through.

I just cleaned up the original hardware and made some rubber buffer pads that go behind the washers.
