The rear end settled down a tad lower after driving it down the road and back. I put a taller tire on it and it brought it back up. Now to figure out what tire sizes I need thinking about 275 55 17 on the rear and a 235 55 17 on the front.

Got the tailgate painted turned great just to be painted out in the open just under 10x10 portable shade tent. I put the ford decals on after I sprayed the base coat then cleared over the decals when I cleared the tailgate.Front end swap on my 1969 F100 - Page 3 Img_2077

Ordered the windshield found it local I had forgot about them told him I wasn't having any luck around here finding on. Took him about hour to get me a price of $216 but he said he would not install it if I was putting the chrome back on it. I found someone to install it for me I have installed one before and it took 3 of us about 4 hours. If you have never tried to install a windshield with this type of chrome it is a pain for sure some will tell you to put the chrome in the rubber before you install it on the windshield. The only way we could get it was to put the gasket on the windshield then work the trim in it and that is still a pain because when you go to install the windshield the trims tries to come out plus with trim in it don't flex to good. I rather pay $100 than be aggravated with it.

Not having any luck finding a good hood so I went ahead and painted mine. I got quite a few hours in reworking the hood. Front end swap on my 1969 F100 - Page 3 Img_2079

I bought a new carb for it I got the Holley Quick Fuel Brawler 650 DP it was spot on right out of the box just need to adjust the rear float it is a tad low. Hopefully they will be here Monday to install the windshield then I can put the wipers back on. Then I will start on the inside looking for a mid 90s bench seat with arm rest my seat is shot.

Well the folks that was going to install my windshield went up a $100 on the install when they called me Monday so I told them not to install it. My brother and me put it in Friday by the time we finished it I was having second thoughts why I didn't go ahead and let them install it. I have to get one peace of the chrome trim locked back in the rubber.
