Default 1965 D1100 4x4 driver/project

Hello, I've admitted to my self that I may be SLIGHTLY over my head, and so I've come here. This is my 1965 D1100 4x4, I aquired around two years ago (you could argue this is my first car as its still the only one that runs), I love every minute of it. This thing has great bones, looks amazing from 50 feet away or more, however its far from perfect. Judging by the wad of receipts I found in it, it seemes the previous owner aquired it from a pick n pul years ago. I found it on craigslist for $3k, decided to go see it, fell in love and drove it home without any issues. Did I over pay? Who knows! But I liked it too much to risk the guy coming after me to snag it. Since then I've had some work done, and encountered a couple strange issues, but nothing I couldnt handle. Now I'm looking to really start working bugs out, and improving things, and here is where I may be a bit too deep. From this point on consider me a noob to most all things IH. I think I know a few things, but if anything I post isn't right, let me know, I'm trying to learn as much as possible here. More to come, so stay tunned! Next post will be whats in it is as it sits(also build sheet) and my "laundry list." Shortly thereafter should come an install/impressions of a reproduced wiring harness from XXX with possible red neck/gunsmith headlight switch repair! Also if they dont work here I will try to get pics in... Im not extremely computer savvy and only just joined... It only took me two hours to get this far also maybe somebody can tell me if Im right in being paranoid or not about posting pics of license plates?
