    Took off side molding & hit it with a shot of paint. Looks much cleaner *considering*
    New leaf spring painted & ready for install. Have to take it to shop for install. Can't get rusted bolts & nuts to budge despite 1/2 of can of WD40. Got a shop manual on CD.
    Steering gear is on the way and should be here before the week is over. Going to go and pick up hood & front clip this week. Shop guy is stealing the radiator & fan shroud but I'm keeping everything else so look for it on CL in the coming months!

    Gave up on finding a 15 X 6 rim and got 4 Black American Racing 15 X 8 rims & slapped some Cooper 235 70's on them. Tightened up the steering gear box & it helps a bit , but have to get a new one. BIG news , found a 2.47 R & P for the rear end! Got 2 'new' doors & fenders , used passenger door & front clip. Hood looks very useable. Looks a like of the unneeded parts will go on CL after I clean them up. Might get 1/2 of my money back. Got my paint guy ready to started on the new parts. Just need the bosses OK on color. Hope she picks the same one I did! LOL

    New mirror on and high beam switch fixed *shot of WD 40*. Street legal now!

    Bed mounted spare tire holder has been sand blasted & is ready for primer & paint.

    Just have to find a bolt long enough to hold tire on & slap a lock on the end of the bolt

    and try again to get the crud off the bed floor & sides. Still looking for a spare tire rim.

    Gonna head on down to LMC in a couple weeks and get new door locks and what else I

    can afford.

    Got the old mirror off , but think I messed up the bolt hole. Time will tell.

    With the mirror off , I used a can of spray paint & got the door a closer color to the rest

    of the body.

    Tracked down the turn signal issue *loose wire* and now I'm street legal!

    Got the cabin cleaned out a bit & the seat cover 1/2 on before the heat and sweat in

    my eyes made me toss in the towel for the day.

    Got to get the fan shroud on before I can drive it 16 miles to work.

    Next minor fix , high beam floor switch and door locks.

    Thinking if I get a new antenna the radio might work.

    Time to sit back and re-stock the bank account for some more heavy duty items.

    Cargo light fixed and windshield washer now working. Got drivers side rear tail light

    socket swapped but still no left turn signal. Still chasing down that ghost!

    Old fan shroud out and new one on hand.

    Stupid drivers side mirror bolt rusted inside door so I got to get another set of hands

    before I can twist it off and put new mirror on. *or use the hacksaw?*

    I actually had a shroud made the first time out of aluminum from a card board template I made. I wound up with a larger radiator from BeCool and a two fan with shroud set up I found in the Summitt racing catalouge . I you find mounting points on your radiator you can search for one with the correct dementions.

    New booster & master cylinder = awesome brakes!

    TIP: Don't use the fan shroud as an arm rest, they break!

    Swapped out old rusted 19 gal. gas tank for a nice new 38 gal tank.
    New battery next week to go along with plugs & fluids.
    Brakes - you are next!
    Wife says no to painting it dark blue or black, but I have a couple years before coming to that river crossing.
