Azryael is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I'm going to get around to mine eventually after getting the rest of what I need; turns out 6.9s are so uncommon here (or they're still all running and no one wants to sell/part them out) that I'll have to grab a gasser core support and simply modify it.

Not a big deal; would have preferred factory welds and what not, but I trust my welding capabilities too.

Did some minor stuff to it. Sand blasted and painted the grille mounts, and my wiper arms. It's the little details that make a truck look nice.





Also went out and took a few nice pictures

The 80s and 90s core supports are very similar. You could just weld in the headlight section from a bullnose, and you wouldn't have to find a 6.9 one or even need to pull the core support off the truck. Then you wouldn't have to mess with all the mounting hardware, or align it.

Hmm, that would certainly make things much easier!

I'd probably look for a way to semi-permanently fasten the headlight deal so I can take it off if I ever wanted to switch back (not sure why I would, but you never know). Then again, 7.3 core supports for '92+ trucks are all around.
