'68 Series IIA 88

So I'm standing next to Charles's truck during NoVA meetup and I made the comment... "man I love the Series trucks, I'll trade it for my DI..." Goose told me " really" and said nothing more.

The next morning I get an email from Goose with a For Sale add... He tells me you want it??? Either way, I'm going there Saturday to pick it up...

Goose rented the U-Haul with Goose Jr, we met at some random parking lot mid-way and drove to get it.

The thing started on the first try... amazing.

I have now parked in my driveway a very nice Series IIA... the best part is that Mrs Pedro, tells me "I REALLY like that truck..."

Big thanks to Gustavo and Luca.

Nice, Pedro!

BTW, is that a radio antenna I see on the rear side? I thought Series trucks only came with phonographs from the factory

I have no idea what's that for... I don't see any cellphone hookup anywhere.

NEVER PAINT IT.

It is perfect as is. Maybe galvanize some stuff, but leave the faded and flaked red on the aluminium.

What would be the best approach for a truck that has a nice patina on the birmabright, but needs something on the steel bits? It looks as if the paint has evaporated from my S3 bulkhead and radiator support. There is a light surface of rust where the paint used to be. By light I mean you can wipe it away with your hand. I really don't want to remove the bulkhead at this time for galvy. Any advice?
