Been doing a lot of small detail work on the bed along with grinding welds. Started working on relocating the filler neck on the gas tank today. Cut a c-notch in the frame. Hopefully will get it welded tomorrow along with this filler neck I made today.
Awesome work. Same drivetrain i'm using (picking up the donor this weekend).
What all did you snag from the donor
Obviously the Engine and trans.
ECM, Wiring harness, Dash wiring harness, instrument cluster, ignition switch and keys, dash harness, power steering hoses.
If you have free reign then grab all that you can. The worst case scenario is you end up with extra and throw some things away. If you can grab all of those electronics you will have an easier time installing it in your truck and removing what you dont need as opposed to trying to find a tiny part you missed.
i am starting a resto on a 49 f1. planning to go with the 4.6 with automatic. what wiring harness should i use for the computer hook up and what about compatability with guages and other electronics. also need suggestions on a donor front suspension and power steering set up
