A variety of truck mirrors ended up on REPU's... the kind you have will ultimately compromise the door sheetmetal around the lower mount, if they've not done so already. Unless you really like those particular ones, you might want to look around for some of the rare, REPU-specific ones...

If your hood was from a Courier, I'd expect to see holes in the front edge, where the 'FORD' logo was mounted; instead, I'm noticing it looks like there was a proper hood trim attached there at one time.

You're not located all that far from me, perhaps we ought to get in touch?

Wow! Good work. You really don't NEED an exhaust.... Just run it out the header to go around the block once or twice :)

Driveshaft?

Did the shop just replace the yoke? If so, do you have a manufacturer and part #?
I had one done years ago for a T2 trans and the shop just replaced the yoke. I sent a friend to the same shop recently to get his done and they had to cut and weld and charge alot more. They couldn't remember doing mine which was just a yoke swap for $100.00.
