Was so excited when I got it done, that as soon as I put the hood on it I stuck a plow on it and put it to work. I should have painted the plow too . I will post pics tomorrow this was a complete restoration . Every single bolt on it was replaced with new most were stainless . All the frame bolts are. Probably have it scratched up already. Even threw a set of tire chains on it.

Would like to order the sticker kit. It is a 79, I like the 78 stickers better. Just don't know if I want to spend 70 bucks on stickers

You might save a few $ thru a local vinyl company, but the efforts and final product may be an unknown
