The trailer is pretty much done. I want to put bed liner on the diamond plate and make inner skirts for the fenders. This is just before the test pull.



Got a couple toys to fit.

Decided to relax in the shop after a hard day at work, hell, a hard week.

Wired in the gauges and put in the ignition & headlight switch. Also used the 67-72 chevy ignition badge.

I finally found the correct hinge pin for the passenger door. It is threaded on the bottom, thanks to Vintage Powerwagons for repopping this piece. So the mirror went on the right side.


Got the glass back last week and the gaskets showed up today. Got the rear window back in. It is green tint. The AD in the back of the shop.


Got some new rubber a couple weeks ago.


Also put in new axle joints and did a front brake job.

I have a '54 Chevy box that might work. Or plan B is a flatbed.

Been doing dinky things and marking things off the build list. Some just aren't photo worthy. Got the windshield frame back blasted and primed. Gave it a coat of black and next will fit the glass.

Over the weekend I decided to paint the center of the steering wheel. Used leftover wheel paint from the trailer project.


Here is how it sits today.

Update time.
The windshield is back from the glass shop, forgot picture, I put it in hiding.

Got a deal on some Warn lock outs.


Warmed up the shifter and tried to make it less 80's looking.


Got the clutch master on the firewall...


and hooked to the pedal, it cycles very nice.

Found some utility tail lights at the local AutoZone. Got them hooked up temporary and noticed they are different lenses. Nice to have the back-up lamps in them.




Get the rusty brake lines replaced and I'll be able to drive it around the yard.

Got the windshield installed tonight.

Going to let it set for awhile before opening it. So the gasket has time to lay flat.
