they can be made to look cool usual rust starts in the front fenders and the front of the box as for making it cool i would check out getting some 70's parts front grill nicer hoods and since its a 2wd you could drop it and find a step side box bad part is if you wanna put a bigger motor in it your gonna need to change the computer. i got lots of parts hood tail gates spare glass etc. if ya need parts.

Take a metal ruler, bend it 90 degrees, it slips right in the wind wing, pull back over the button and slide it up and the wind wing is open, slide your hand in and unlock door, i kept my bent ruler in the front of the box i did it like 5 or 6 times in my old 85 before I got smarter.

And as for rust spots watch the lip around the wheel wells.

And the bolt patters for dodges is suppossed to be 70's 4x4 and 2wd are 5 on 4.5, 80's 4x4 is 5 on 5.5, 2wd didnt change to 5 on 5.5 till 85 or so, dodge didnt always change every truck the same year they left stuff so any year of change has old or new parts till all the old ones were used up I guess.
