I don’t have pics loaded. I’ve went a long way on this build. The cab turned out being a nightmare of a rust bucket. About done with that now. After all the fixing I Had to pull the roof skin....can’t find a repop of it so I’ll have to fab the complete 1 1/2” band around the front and sides, the back belt is salvageable, thank the good lord.
Engine is all there in my little climate controlled “engine shop”. Yet to be assembled...waiting until I get cab work finished then I’ll drop back assemble the engine and install it first then the cab. Lot easier that way. My E4od is rebuilt and ready for install, ordered a billet input shaft for it. Thankfully my cousin knows a thing or two and advised me that if I’m making 750 lbs. torque @ 3800 rpm then I’d be wise to do so.
Bed is done, one side mostly rough muddled in, decided to finish truck, get in epoxy primer then do body work as a complete truck. This way I’ll get to drive it before I’m an old man....
The worst part ahead is I’m gonna have to flare the front fenders 2-3” for the wider front wheels and build a hood scoop to....should be down hill from there.
I’ll work on getting pics uploaded.
Question, on the hood scoop, should I make it functional. It will be the rear facing type, not ram type. It would help with cooling I imagine at speed, but will it fog my window, anything like that. Prolly not a smart question, but I don’t want anything negative about the cruising experience afte4 all this work. Thanks
