The white line shown is actually where I need to cut the frame back to correctly position the clip. I left it long to "ease" up on it.

I agree, I got it tacked in tonite and needed to walk away for a little while. it seems to measure out and appears leveled out but I need to look at it with fresh eyes.

Well for better or worse, the front end is in and all welded up.

thanks. I wasn't sure how it was all going to work out but in the end it sort of came together.

I am ordered some biscuit style mounts so we will see how they work out. The one problem I have is on the drivers side, the RP occupies the space where I would normally attach the motor mount, so I will have to get creative.

How true that is. As I have gotten older I have learned to think things out a lot better, however it isn't until you are really in the project do you come up with real solutions.

Well off to work on the truck some more; last 2 days were getting the box back in place and getting the rear bumper sorted. Now I am cutting up the doner Dak cab to try and get some sheet metal (floor and firewall) as well as the pedals.

Well I didn't cut up the Dak, at least not yet. Took longer than expected to gut it plus I ended up cleaning up the shop. After looking at it however, I might be able to parts/pieces but I certainly cannot just transplant it. Therefore, I am going to jigsaw the pieces where they best work, then tie it all together. The biggest part I need is the center hump as that is a little difficult to make.

One issue that I keep thinking of is the wheels. I have a pair of 15x8 slots, so I was looking for some 15x6 or 7 for the front but haven't been able to find any. I have the original wheels on it right now and I snapped a hubcap onto one of the rear wheels and to be honest I kind of like the way it looks. The wheels are steel and have most of the white paint someone put on them, but I am thinking painting them black and leaving the hubcaps chrome just for offset; I will post a pic and see what everyone thinks here. The upside is that the tires are brand new Bridgestone's.

There isn't anything under the air cleaner. I just got that for my Hemi roadrunner but thought it would look good on here.
