1997 f350 project truck for this season

Picked this up at auction just before the snow for a very "economical" price haha. Its a 1997 Ford F350 2 wheel drive with a 5.8L gas and auto transmission. It's going to be a simple build up, just going to replace the 2 fenders, put the original doors back on after I repair them, paint the cab portion of the truck white, and build a new flatbed for the back and paint that gray, and put on a good fram mounted hitch. Really looking forward to the finished product.

We're just going to use it was a heavy towing truck for floating around equipment, hauling sods, material in the dump trailer, etc. We still have the 2002 silverado and the 2008 ram we use for the mowing trailer

I hope you're patient, its gonna be a couple more months until I can get at it. Parts are in the basement ready to go on, so once it starts it should progress fairly quickly.
