I've been having fits trying to build a set of lakes style headers. I bought a kit but of course I couldn't leave it alone and ended up botching the job...a couple of times. I tried to sweep the primary tubes to the front to give more room for the muffler in the cone/collector. Then I thought it would be cool to have them go into a tri-y type, only to find out that the bolts had no room. Now I've patched it all back together. I am as far as I can go without the cab on to adjust for clearance at the cowl and doors.

This may be the last post for who knows how long.

The cab is now in a friends shop where it under went a thrash to sand and fill and sand and glaze to get it ready for "real" primer.

What I have posted is eight years of work, for the most part all by myself as I learned how to do the various jobs at hand. I hope to be on the road this summer painted or not.

Thanks to those who visited here and I will post as new things get done...sorry to have taken so much space and time.

As I am using a firewall mounted master cylinder I was told it would need reinforcement. I made a 3/16" plate for the inside which mounts the MC and gas pedal, braced to the dash support

Here is the final version of the dash and door panels. The dash is painted with Rustoleum sand texture at the top and flat brown at the bottom soon to be separated by red pinstripe. Door panels are flat brown and a hammer finish on the moldings( to hide my work).
The last picture is of the S10 bench seat which is mounted so the seat comes out for access to the battery. The shifter is on a B&M and the boot is from a junk Aries K. The floor will change when I can figure out how much tunnel is needed

I filled the large hole in the dash left by the old instrument panel and and sort of tunneled/frenched in mounts for new gauges. If you look close you may be able to see the finished window moldings
