Sounds like you enjoy working on stuff. Youíve got your work cut out for you!
Iíve got an Ď85 F150, but it will never be more than a utility vehicle - haul stuff to the dump, bring home stuff from Lowes for home projects, etc. Clear coat is shot - I may put some makeshift paint job on it after I retire so itís not too much of an eyesore.
Thank you for your service, Marine!
