    Yeah, that's what my '85 looked like when the seat belt pulled out of the truck.... needless to say I dumped it and got a new ride!

    (I am SO glad I bought my '74 in southern California!)

    Raybuck auto parts

    Its close to Mass. parts would come in 2 or 3 days. If you ever do anything like this there are a few things that I would have done a little different. For instance...I laid the floor so the egdes rested on the lip of the wheel wells. Now I think I may have to shave like a 1/4 inch off the poly bushing in that area because the floor should have been 1/4 in. higher. Prob. not a big deal, but....

    Wow that brings back memories. But to tell you the truck if you know what your doing just a littlle bit it will be a easy fix. I just replaced my whole floor in my '86 along with all of the sub-fram minus the 2 maine supports that run under the seats. and the two braces up by the fire wall.
