08-14-2008 01:46 PM A little more work done
I keep taking care of little things that need done. Finished the brake lines to the MC and made some little line holders from scrap, put on the radiator/hood braces. The first layer of insulation is done. Found out the garnish moldings for the doors won't fit with my new glass so I'm going to cut them down I guess. What I'm really doing is stalling, working up the nerve to tackle the wiring kit...confused and dazed by all that wire.

I will say again that the yellow is tinted primer and the final color is more like that of the frame. The arrow in the 2nd photo is where I had to cut the tube to clear the frame. Finally got the body mount bolts to line up and ended up with lots of firewall clearance. Today insulated the doors, finished up the brake lines to the MC. Next is to start the wiring...I think.

08-11-2008 03:46 PM back with glass
This first picture is a little fuzzy due to being taken with a phone. We had just gotten back with the cab from the glass man and put it on the frame..after a little persuation. The new windshield is blacked out to hide the dash. The new hood to cowl gasket is on. It's starting to look like the hot rod I planned.

07-05-2008 02:25 PM Bed details
The bed cover turned out not to be the problem I was afraid of as it cleared the fuel line coming from the top of the fuel cell. I made a prop from some tubing but should probably get a gas lifter to put there instead. The tail lights are new repro stock with LED's and the wires go through the tube mount. As I said it all looks a little funny/narrow due to the missing cab but the empty space is filled from behind by the width of the truck cab. Just got the hood to cowl gasket as I write this so thats next.

The bed is mounted now, in yellow(sort of) primer, and I have started assembly. I'm sure you think the yellows don't match very well and you're right. The primer will be covered in a Mustang yellow that is much closer to the frame color. It also looks a little strange without the cab, which I still need help mounting.
