Used a Speedway Motors axle and brake set up in the front.









Broke up some new running boards.



Cleaned up the bumpers.

Used a disc brake S-10 axle for the rear, used the stock spring set up (minus two leaves) and ladder bars.



I was missing the drivers window garnish so I used the passenger side to go by and just made some.

The engine is a .030 over 350.





Rolled it outside for the first time since I got it and degreased the frame and engine bay.





I have a new stock tire and wheel which I think I'll keep on the back.



The engine is done other that the intake and fuel system.

Mocked up the engine and started the engine and trans mounts.







Have about an inch between the drive belt and the fan housing.



Brake pedal assembly mounted.



The stock gauge holes were oval so I took an old dash from a M151 military jeep and graphed it in to hold standard size gauges.

I like the cowl lights, wired them up on the "accessory" side of the switch for park lights.







It's good to have the seats back in.

The 16" fan I had on it died going to the Elizbethton Cruise-in Saturday night so I put this Taurus fan on it, fits perfect.



Just finished painting the fenders and running boards black like they are supposed to be.



I used Rustoleum Semi-Gloss black, once it cures out it will be about the same gloss level as the original black on the top section.
