01-18-2013 09:10 PM exhaust build
Purchased a FLOWMASTER Universal 2.25" dual exhaust, with crossover. Had to get a metal cutting blade for my wood saw. It cut through the pipe pretty good. I was worried if I could do this, after I got into the work it turned out to be doable. Got the pipes connected to manifold and going back to the mufflers. So far so good. Got a pic of the gauge panel. Wiring it up for install.

Had to add a bracket to the BTO plate for trans cable for the throttle. Now I got a throttle cable mounted.

11-04-2012 08:44 PM Bed back on
Bed, rear fenders, bumper and tail lights back on. Got to see that all parts ordered for tail lights won't
work. Going to install fuse block and wires in the cab and trial run wiring to see how thats going to come together. I was thinking on putting in the dash instruments and may be starting the engine. Three
things to get done in the cab finish shift linkage, a/c brackets and battery hold down. Also got to drill holes in fenders to connect to running boards.

Finally got the old red paint off. Who ever painted this truck red (original green) did a very poor job.
Covered the door inspection plates, glove box door and ash tray door. The ash tray will be converted to a 12v plug for accessories.
