Time for an overdue update.
Been workin hard on it and now things are moving fast! The motor is now in and after 3 different sets of mounts Im happy with how it sits in the truck.
Frame cut to clear headers then plated to restore some strength.There will be more tubing for the coilover hoops goin in so it will be much stronger when Im done.
Had to cut out the stock crossmember since it was only 3" away from axle sitting at ride heigth. Made this one that tucks up much closer to the oilpan and clears the axle alot better.
I also got the winch plate on and finished the core support. Mounted and plumbed the powersteering cooler.
Bed floor made and jack mounted.
Interior tore out so I can make a cross bar behind the seat for the 5pt belts to mount to and Im doing roll on bedliner on the floors instead of carpet.
Rear rad mount finished and all rear cage work in done now. Ready for paint.
Have cardboard cutouts made of the fenders and bedsides that I will take in to Ron MIller Racecars to be cut out of aluminum. This week I plan to finish swapping the power brake parts in,coat the floors,paint the bed and start running wiring and plumbing.
