Yeah Learned my lesson !     Air and Power steering no question.

         However, tranny will go from four speed granny to 5 speed overdrive.  Trying to keep with the work truck motive'

Really looking forward to seeing this done Tony. Modern convenience while keeping to the originality of the “blacksmith” truck. ????

Tony, this might sound like a minor trivial thing compared to the bigger parts, but l noticed the brake and clutch pedal pads are pretty well worn out. Where do you find replacement pads like that? l know my son gets a lot of his Ford pickup parts from LMC. ls there a place like that for IH pickups?

Yes they fitting in with original seat and peddles . 
they restore Scouts and specialize in I. H. 
I have not asked them but I am sure they have them in stock .

the problem I am having is same as with RedKid with original steering wheel  . Using new column leaves us with wrong splines , only way to use original wheel which I want and did with RedKid is cut top of shaft and weld on top of original shaft .

i think these trucks would look ridiculous with a racing or sporting steering wheel

We have to see when all is painted and together wether it adds to put it on . 
I am trying to have more of a everyday look and service truck with this .

Redkid was done as more of a IH pick up can hold its own next to Chevys and Fords at car shows .
