Blanked off the heater hose holes, and mounted the starter solenoid. Need a short battery cable. Also hooked up the gas tank temporarily with rubber, but didn't get gas yet.
Decided to use the short hood in the front, it fits the Mercedes grill a lot better, and it will be good practice bending square tubing to make it fit. Might have to put on a bumper of some kind to make it look unified, there is a chuk of 47 Ford bumper left over...
As soon as i get the starter hooked up, i'll start slapping the body on this. I was going to use bed liner inside the cockpit, but i think i'll go with a textured paint instead. Bed liner is $60.00 a gallon, and looks like a real mess to use. And i am the word's sloppiest painter.
Who knows, i might even register this thing for a few weeks, if i get it done. It might be fun to drive.
I also want to go get a length of exhaust pipe and put a straight pipe on it to keep the racket down to a roar while i work on it. Got a tubing bender, after all.
