01-04-2010 08:49 PM Fitting the extension....
With the dash closed up,I fit the extension to the door and tacked it into place. I trimmed the excess of the piece that hung out into the window opening.(see entry #120 for that picture). You can also see the gap that will need to be filled between the door and the extension.

Before I can fit the extension to the door,I needed to close up the end of the dashboard.

01-03-2010 06:27 PM Working the glass....
I have decided to take a break from the front end,and turn my attention to the windows.I have a few modifcations to finish before Im ready to have my glass guy come to make the patterns for the windows. I want him to have enough time to do what he needs. I put a 59' chevy dash in the truck a while back.Which led me to modifing the front windshield opening.Now the same dash is going to affect my door glass as well. When I got the dash,I took everything that went with it.Im going to use the filler pieces and mount them to the doors so it has the wrap around effect again. Im also going to eliminate the vent windows,which means I need to remove the small bracket that it set on.(you can see it in the first picture.) Im wanting to get all this welding and cutting done before the glass patterns are made. I also have a number of holes to fill also. The prior owner cut a large square hole for the inside handles he was going to use. Im useing a different style.

01-03-2010 06:17 PM Finally made up my mind......
When I got this truck,the prior owner had welded brake line to the hood to accentuate the factory lines.I kept going back and forth whether or not to keep them. I decided I really didnt like them. Luckily his lack of experiance was good for me,being that removing them was just as simple as grinding them off. This felt a little weird,being that I have modified the rest of the truck so much,to be returning a part of it back to "stock".

01-03-2010 06:10 PM Installing the radiator......
Finally got to mount the modified radiator back in the truck.Ended up having to trim the lower cross bar a little for clearance and add a vertical mount to it. Also made some simple struts to keep the radiator secure at the top as well. Even thought it felt like taking few steps backward,the end result of moving the lower neck are well worth it. The neck now has plenty of clearance and will be easier to connect to the water pump.
