What is "that" part called? / update, too
On the RRC, in front of the radiator, behind the grill, are two diagonal bars/tubes that appear to support the metal over the radiator, under the hood, behind the grill.
One of "those" members on "my" POFS is rusted clean in half... I would like to replace it before putting the grill back on (had to replace the headlights, too). I suppose I could get one fabricated if this one's too rusty to weld (it likely is), but a simply replacement from Will Tillery would be preferred.
FWIW, I'm only acting in good faith in fixing these things... I don't know how long I'll remain as the owner of this fooking bastidge.
My day saturday was spent prepping and painting under the decker panel to get it ready for re-installing the wiper motor assembly; then finishing the power steering hoses and reservoir. Never got to the wheels or steering gear. It was a miniscule victory, but after removing the fan blade (with $100 of special wrenches!), belt, pump pulley, and fussing and cussing at the bloody hoses attachments, I was happy to put it all together and have it start w/o leaking (for now).
Next weekend I was supposed to be using this rust bucket for a surveying project, so I don't know if I can push the client a week and work on the truck or let the truck sit another week before tackling the wheels and steering gear.
