Old Timer, back with a J-20

Wow, there are a lot of new names on this board!

I was around a lot a while ago, from before this forum, but sold off my last FSJ about ten years ago.

Now, after this ten year hiatus and only occasionally dropping in, I've finally dragged home my next FSJ project, a 1987 J-20:



(let me know if this picture did not load; I am using Google photos this time around, but of course I can see things that I have access to, though others may not). If you can't see the photo, it's at this link:

https://photos.app.goo.gl/rdthwsRiuXUerYBy5

I did not have much capabilities in the way of documenting my previous builds, but now I've got a Youtube channel, on which I'll be posting videos of the rebuild.

The plan this time around (in contrast to last time with my Cherokee) is to turn this into a good-driving antique-plate truck. It's a relatively-solid truck (for this area) that has spent most of its life as a garaged plow-truck. I'll be posting questions, and updates in a build thread.

It's good to be back!

I see the picture is trying to post but it is just showing up at a (-) sign. I think you have to go into google photos and select a security setting that allows others to see them or something like that.

WELCOME BACK!!! I think it is so cool to see folks on here that have been around as long as you. Super glad you're back! Looking forward to seeing yours come together!

Thanks for the kind welcome!

I changed the settings on the photo album it's in, but that may not do it.
