Good luck with this! That'll be a neat old truck when you are ready to drive it.

Cool story, sorry about your brother. I lost the brother closest to me 4 years ago, I still think of picking up my phone to call him.

That was us too Top. We were like best friends and two years later I still miss having him to talk to. He was around here every other day and on the phone pretty much every day. He was two years younger than me. He didn't drink or smoke. I figured we would grow old and grouchy in the same nursing home.lol

 I miss him every day.

My brother was 6 years older than me, very athletic and brilliant with machinery, never got past 9th grade, but ended up with an engineering degree years later. He had the flu in the early 90's and it left him with rheumatoid arthritis, and later developed PADS, (peripheral arterial disease) and he lost a lower leg to it, but the big blow was losing his wife to melanoma in 2004, he just never got over that, even though he lived another 8 years, it was downhill from there.
