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.

My Son came over and needed to redue front brakes on his S10. So the old girl got outside for the first time in a year and a half.

08-07-2012 06:08 PM I have steering
Doing this hot rod for the first time, one of the things I do is go to the bone yard and look at how cars are built to get ideas and parts to complete a job. On one trip I was looking at ford vans steering set ups. After removing a couple of shafts off steering boxes I finally found one the fits a mustang II. It had a telescoping shaft on it that had a 6 inch movement. When I got my column and installed it I found the steering shaft was just to long. So I cut 1 1/2 in. off and it fits great. There is a Borgeson universal and 3/4DD on the column end. It's awsome to turn the steering wheel and watch the front tires turn. I know a NewBe...........Also got a LOKAR kit to connect column to 700r4.
