    BTW, I have a manifold and adapter to put a GM throttle body on it if you are interested... Howell can make you a FI kit for it, or you can junkyard a kit from an early '90's 4.3L with 5.0L...

    Gutted the interior a month ago to change it to gray and found some rust on the driver's side floor. Decided to cut it out and patch it instead of covering it up again.
