Restore Dad's Truck

This is to finish restoration of my father's truck. As many of you may know my father passed away recently. I bought the truck from the family about 4 years ago when my father could no longer drive. My father loved this truck, it was his baby. So it was important to me to keep it in the family. My father suffered from alzheimer's dementia. It was my hope to get the truck restored while he was still able to understand and appreciate it. I failed. I am disabled and on SSDI and the money I can earn above that is limited. But I did the best I could as fast as I could. But it was till not enough. So now it becomes a memorial tribute to my father to finish the work. Mechanically the truck is pretty sound now. Mostly what is needed is bodywork and a paint job. The amount I am trying to raise is to get that work done. Any amount is a blessing and a help. I plan on getting some custom paint work on it for my dad. If you want to hear a more comprehensive description I recorded a video called the Truck Saga. Here is the link.
