    A couple years ago I picked this puppy up for a couple hundred bucks. She came with boxes of parts and loads of rust. Now I’m just trying to piece her together and get her on the road. Paint will come later.

    So awesome! That shiny 22re is B-E-A-utiful! Cant wait to see it finished! Always good to see others taking a fondness for 1st gens and spending the time and money to restore these great rigs. :canada:

    No kidding. Especially for being as old as they are. And location plays a huge part as well. I heard about some stuff called 410 that's supposed to stop a d prevent rust oxidation. It's like a black spray paint though. Well, the stuff that I saw.


    But anyway, man! That thing is really looking brand new! You got alot of fresh looking chrome. Looks very good. You're doing a nice resto. job for sure. I'm keeping an eye on this thread. Keep at it! :101010:
