Pretty easy honestly, just took my time and bolted stuff on.
Had to do a little welding

It was oddly hard/expensive to buy the rag joint steering box end. Easy junk yard find but I'm too lazy for that, haha.

Brake lines were 'fun'. getting around the frame and clutch linkage cleanly.

Best thing I did was open the "old tool drawer" and give her a tune.

And back in the driveway. A happy ending to be sure.

Once the brakes were bedded and the power steering bled, this old truck really has a new feel.
She feels light! She can keep up with LA drivers (oblivious A-holes in Priuses) and can stop before killing them with the bumper.

A re-upholstered seat, smaller steering wheel, and better stock rear taillights will be on the list, but for now it's on to the next new project.

Thanks so much guys
It's very satisfying to get it done for him, and I seriously could not have done it without the good quality info I got off here. This info will only become more valuable as time moves on. Most of the parts I bought were right the very first time!

It's been about a year and a half and thought I'd report that everything still works well and he's still driving it a little bit.

The P/s pump does whine a little, but I think I'll just chalk it up to a crappy re-build and try another one. It's all you can do now-a-days.
