I needed to make some small axle to spring saddles. A couple of 2 x 2 x ΒΌ" tube and there you have it. Note to self make sure that if you do this again make sure that you don't cut through the weld on the square tube it dulls hole saws very quickly.

The truck came with a 2.73 rear with drum brakes. I needed a lower ratio and a narrower rear and I really wanted disk brakes. I measured my S10 and determined that it had the right length disk brakes and a 3.43 ratio. So off to the junkyard and got a S10 rear. Keep in mind I DO NOT plan to race this truck it is just a cruiser.

My next step was to install the sun visors. I got a set out of an S10 with the vanity mirrors. Fishing another wire to the roof.

I decided that I should install three point seatbelts to be a little safer. While I had the headliner out I figured that now was as good a time as any to weld in an anchor point for the shoulder strap.

Water lines too. There you go with room to spare.
