I just purchased a F-100 pickup from my brother. I was may father's work truck for many years. He passed away in 1985. My brother purchased the truck in the 90's and about 8 years ago, he put it out to pasture. It's been setting in his backyard since. I decided to purchase it form him and restore it as close to new as I can. I'm looking for pointers from people that have already been down this road so I don't waste my time doing something wrong. I first plan to make it road worthy and then start working on the body next. I thinking I will add some custom items but I'm not sure that would be the right thing to do. Should I leave it as close to original as possible or beef it up a little? Any thohgts out there?
