Lightbulb engine installed pics

here are a few pics of the engine set back and the oil pan clearence.
looks like one of the early drag cars with the engine in the cab.

today's plan; tranny crosmember, find a drive shaft the right size in my big pile of driveshafts, dash configuration for guages and switches, start to figure out how the tranny/firewall will go together. some how make it removable like a van, l can use zues fasteners so l can get in to time the thing and change plugs and wires.

Cool today's stuff

found the perfect driveshaft in my hoard of ones l been stashing away for 20 years. l knew some day l'd use one or two
got more of the dash mocked up and found the VDO anitque white/gold guages l'm using, they look nice.

cleaned out the cab, found some stuff l DON'T EVER want to know what it is or used to be. l have to raise the seat about 6'' so l can see over the hood.
gonna put a 1/16'' X 6'' piece of flat metal under the 1977 nova split bench seat mounts , then that will be welded to the stock seat frame. the stock seat frame is welded to the floor, this will work out great.

Question pieces needed

[QUOTE=SugarRay8; Are there any more parts you still need?[/QUOTE]

sorry it took so long to answer this question, did not do an inventory of everyting i have till last night.

need the vent cowl pieces that operate the door, the parts go under the dash.

a stock raditor, mine was a new one, but seems to be M I A somewhere.

a 7'' power booster, the big one hits the valve covers.

taillights or ideas. l have a set of maltese cross lights, not sure if l want them on the truck though

l can't tell ya guys how much the support yer givin' me means to me!!'

digging thru the storage shed last night l found a can of viper red l have left over from a roadster build. that got me thinking the truck would look good red, and since red was jimmy's favorite color it will be cool.

maybe it's fate l found the red paint, l ain't seen that can in years

Talking title

had feelers out for a titlte, a man called me and asks what and why l need this for, tell him what's going on and he stated;
''ok you will have one soon, NO CHARGE donated to the build''.
l was speechless

must be a sign that things are going to work out ok on the truck, finding parts and pieces for this build has been easier than any other i've done.

I'll pass all your'e good wishes to this man for helping

I think it's great that your finishing this build. Should be an awsome tribute to your son's memory.
