Well both cab corners are done and floor pans are finished all thats left is sand the cab paint it and put it together.
On the other hand the motor dosent look like its gonna hold for to much longer lol.
I pulled the passenger side calve cover and geuss what i found coolant haha not much just a couple little tear drops but i geuss we will have to get some aluminum heads to fix it darn.
And i also checked the oil geuss what it smells like gas haha we might pull this motor and put one of our 360's in it for winter to get the motor in it (390) torn apart.
Any one want pics?

Truck is all painted and put together looks awesome for the first time me or my brother have done body work.
I made front 6" shackles and dropped the front leaf spring cross member down 3" then we removed the front blocks our heims for the steering should be here by the end off the week i ordered from ruff stuff so hopefully it wll get here quicker than ballistic. We started a flat bed tonight we got all the beams done for now just need to cap the sides with flat stock then get some oak 2"x6" cut for the bed and make a head ache rack get our mud flaps on and get plates and insurance for it the go cruise town. We also changed the coolant and thermostat changed valve cover's and gaskets new exhaust donuts removed stock fan installed an electric fan changed the oil we went with straight 40 weight because the bottom end is so worn out it had 25 pounds off oil pressure when you would start it and it now has 50 at an idle and 75 under load so that should help alot.
Oh were taking it to a bog this weekend to
What do you guys recomend mallory ignition or msd ive heard bad things about msd. I think if we do new dizzy coil ignition box plugs and 9mm wires and put our holley 650 back on it will run better what do you guys think?

awesome build.

Can't wait to see the new painted pics.

Also glad to see the nit-pickers stopped commenting, thank you. Sounds like the guy knows what direction he's going with this project. Most of the complainers don't even live in the same state.
