And finally, the last box that couldn't get wet in the rain. I got my set of Turbo rods in for the future engine build for this truck (as if I needed help spending money on this thing).
Earlier, I forgot to add "Thanks Torinojts!"

I like those mirrors, keep seeing them on square bodys at the yard and have thought about getting a set. The small ones I have on now dont do very well and give a bit of blind spot of small cars.

The ones on here were mismatched and neither style looked very good to me. The one that had been rigged on the passenger's side was this style of mirror, but if I was going to replace one, I was going to replace them both. They came with new mounting elbows so don't buy them separately like I did. I won't be able to attempt to align them until the interior's back in and the dually fenders are back on. I may not be able to run them inward like they are now with the fenders on. At least that part is easy to change.

Today, I took the trim pieces to the car wash to wash the mouse yuck off of them. $8.50 later, it may not be perfectly clean, but I think it's good enough. What little is left there should clean up fairly easily with Simple Green.

Even though the trim pieces are now clean, I'm going to have to wait for a while longer to install them. The headliner needs some help. The bigger hole is where the hole in the roof from the old style antenna was at. The smaller hole is from mice (I think). I'm going to cut the holes out bigger and put some more cardboard inside them for patches. Both of the front corners came off so I'm going to have to reattach them as well. THEN I can get some more material to cover this all up.

Got my headliner in the trunk right now about to drop it off at an upholstery shop nearby today. I took apart the hvac and welded it all back together yesterday with the jounjip plastic welder and the stock rods that came in the package. Not pretty but who is asking. SO far it seems adequate and fairly sturdy. Nice to know i have a clean system to blow air in my face with lol.

I also put the right stuff in the channel seams where it comes together. Not sure how much if any that will help the seal.

Thanks. They are Grote #28093-5. I'm liking them better all the time. I bought them on Ebay for $85.58 (couldn't do that again if I tried) for the pair. Like I said before, they come with the mounting elbows.
