The question now is what to do next. I still have to get my AC charged, and all the little bugs. I have several stainless steel items that I fabricated that need polished
Since I am retired you know that I have a honey do list that I have been putting off for about two years. Of course I need to clean my shop and get it organized. I have a wood shop/paint booth also to get organized. I am thinking about another project this one will drive me to tears.

Okay after nearly two years I finally got it back together. Got all the fenders and running boards back on. Took it for a road test the other day and got it inspected. I’m finding a few little bugs but I knew that would happen. I had to play with the carb and timing to get it to idle. the battery cables were loose when I tightened the cable at the starter I somehow twisted the stud around in side of the solenoid. I am using a Power master high torque starter, as it is a lot easier to install around my headers. I took it back to Advance Auto and was told they didn’t sell them anymore. Thank god Summit has quick service. They had it in my hands in two days.

I installed the AC in the seat riser before I installed it into the cab. I then plumed the AC , heater, defroster, and radio. I still need to have the AC charged. And the driver's seat is installed.

As you can see that other than the omega bend I now have a 3" straight exhaust. Oh yes I forgot I recycled the mufflers as they were made of 3" pipe don't tell anyone as I am going to tell everyone that it is straight pipes. LOL

Since I lowered the ride height I didn't think the side exhaust would clear the ground. Since I had so much 3" pipe lying around I used it. The mufflers on the side pipes were 3" straight pipes with baffles in side. I needed an omega shaped pipe to go over the rear end. I took my old u pipe I made for my side pipes and welded a 90* elbow to each end. After I cut the elbows to match the u bend I used my old technique of hose clamping some pieces of old band saw blades to align the u and the elbow ends together.
