Modifications

Drivetrain
The PO had cruise control trouble, and it is now removed from the valve cover. EGR is deactivated. PO had intended to run VegiOil, but never completed the conversion. Fuel heater, and other switches were in place with the Fuelmanager filter. So I removed everything except the FM filter, and connected the fuel tank line to the inlet. The outlet goes to the factory pre filter, and then of course to the primary.

The air conditioning is still packed with R12.
Interior
Interior like most, needs a new dash. Upholstery is Black and in excellent condition. The carpeting is also in very good condition. I used acrylic paint and fabric medium to re-dye it. Doors are in very good condition. Factory floor mats are a great addition.
Exterior
Oxidized paint, and peeling clear coat. Body is in good straight condition.
Suspension
SLS is working fine, and the front end is tight. I recently replaced the center link, tie rods and idler arm bushing. There was a slight wobble caused by a slightly bent center link... which was hard to spot due to the steering damper.
