gauge pod complete , started on mock up of the steering column . had to patch in the original hole and drill out a 2-1/8" hole for the new column , had to go back to oem exhaust manifold because steering shaft would not clear long tube headers


made a frame up for the lower section so i can install perforated mesh

just going to run stock manifolds for the 5.9 magnum for now  , novak has some block hugger headers but haven't called them yet to see how far off the block the tubes are cause there isn't much room even with stock manifolds
http://www.novak-adapt.com/catalog/headers/dodge-v8-headers/

made up some seat brackets for the seats i pulled out of a durango but the seats wont fold down past 90* forward so currently looking for some other seats and then putting a full bench seat in instead of the middle seat from the durango , dogs keep getting their feet caught in the gaps then it will go in for body work and paint next month

seems to be a universal problem; steering shafts and headers...
