We do alot of things the same way Old Iron. Does that make us right?
That's on my list of things to do while I'm resting this week end. Get it in the computer and cut the new floors out. The nice thing about this one is both sides mirror each other. Just one pattern flipped.

Default Progress....

Pulled the bed off to put the fuel pump/fuel level sending unit in it to check for clearance. Perfect with room to spare.

We got the bed set where it needs to be. Working on mounts. Slow and steady.

While it was off we got the brake line, fuel lines, and wiring harness for rear of truck in the frame. I'm liking this donor thing. Easy Peasy!!!!

I'm sure we will have the bed off another time or two before its all said and done.

Had a fella call the other day and wants me to mount a 53 International on an early
Dakota frame and build motor mounts for a LS to go in it.

It's been a slow day. I needed to take a day off and rest up a little.
I did manage to get the wife's "CAD" work into the computer. Probably cut them Monday and see if she gets to do the future template layout work.

I slipped off for a little alone time and flew my drone down by the river and got the greatest shot of a eagle. There is a nesting pair down there some where and he came after the drone. I've never had that experience before. When I saw him coming I just hovered in place and he flew with in what looked like about 10 to 15 feet. Really Kooool. I won't go back to that area till late summer so I don't disturb the wild life.

Turned out to be a great day of rest and relaxation with a little excitement.
