I think that's more like 4 steps forward and 2 steps back It always seems slow when it's your own project but from where I'm sitting it looks like good progress Keep on truckin'

Thumbs up headers and time

got the modified headers on and the fit is great lots of room for the spark plugs & wires. now need to modify the exhaust pipes to fit, the "new" headers sit a little bit higher up into the frame. not a big deal, just more time.

so much for the 2 month throw her together and drive it l planned at the start of this build

but, that's just life, stuff comes up and ya adapt and go on.

''soon, l keep telling myself".

Question steering

going to use two borgenson steering u-joints and an 11' shaft to clear the header.

l don't think it will need a lolipop joint because is such a short distance and very little angle on the shaft from the box to the column.

pics wil be posted when finished with the steering stuff :

Unhappy thoughts

l am sitting her thinking about how close, so yet far, from getiing her running.

june 13th will be 9 years since l lost him. Jimmy's birthday is june 25th and he would have been 25. l want so bad to have her done by then. its is frustrating but we all have things in our lives we have to deal with.

l hope to make the deadline, but it's looking like we may not.


l know l am ranting, thanks for puttiin' up with me

Lightbulb wire holders and tach

got the tach in and made some redneck addel clamps

old license plates work great for wire loom holders and once the bed is in, no one will ever see'em gonna use'em under the truck along the frame also.

Can you see your speedo past the steering wheel?

I had trouble fitting everything in where I could see it, ended up having to cut the speedo in straight above the column.

It's tricky, hey.

This was the only way I could get anything into that hole while it still remained visible.
The top left gauge you can see from outside the wheel and the bottom right one you can see through the centre of the wheel. Obviously it would be the other way for LHD.





I only ever sat in mine a couple of times while it had the standard column and front end in it so I can't remember, but visibility of the speedo must have been pretty terrible even when the trucks are dead stock?
