Alright Ohio winters have taken the toll on another 7.3. My truck is a 2000 F-350 ext. cab short bed with the ZF6 Tranny behind it, the odometer read 164,xxx. My goal of this project is too effectly slow down this rust as much as possible and make the truck looking great and as cheaply as I can by not buying cheap products but doing as much labor myself or the help of my vocational school. My motto for this project is "If you dont have the money or time to do it right the 1st time how will you have it to do it the 2nd time"
