Got the doors painted, missed some spots, more sanding and painting. All those parts are what goes inside the doors. I took these apart four years ago. Looks like a jigsaw puzzle. But I'm working on it and its coming back to me. My son finished the bed strip all needs to be done in final adjustments and paint. Painted the wind glass frames. Check out the dice.
Got the hood on. Doing a lot of the small jobs like set eng timing and putting all the small stuff back on. That bolt pictured is the one that bolts spring to the hood. I only have one and cant find another one anywhere. My son may be able to make some for me where he works. Put 30 mi driving in the neighborhood checking everything out. The pwr brakes work great, stops on a dime.
Finished the floor and bolted down the seats. Laid down insulation for heat and noise then covered
with a vinyl floor covering from LMC. Button down wiring harness eng. compartment. Painted front fenders and installing, many bolts
I had a fella send me a message thanking me for my post said he enjoyed watching the build of my truck. I tried to send a message back and got clicking around in the journal and ended up deleting his message. So thank you for your message.
Ordered a universal chrome steering column. It has directional and emergency blinkers, steering wheel with column shift. The original one I had just was a piece of junk. If anyone wants this thing I will send you all the parts. The bed is done, screwed in all 49 carriage bolts. It looks great. I have to have my son redo the one end piece the slots not deep enough. He works in a machine shop. I had to go to Auto Zone and get two flash units. The ones that came with the wiring harness had one out of two work. The new ones blink a bit faster. Gas tank was put back in. Also wired the rear for trailer lights.
Had to cement in the metal anchor for the direction signal lever as the hole it sits in got worn out. Had to thread the hole all the way through the piece so I could use a longer bolt. So far so good. Worked a day and a half getting the linkage set up for shifting the trany. Steering back in.
