Gorgeous! I installed an Accuair setup in my bro's '60 C10... by far the best air management system out there! You'll love it!

Right on! Wanted to make sure I was wasn't coming off as an *** hat. So hard to understand tone in plain text.

Great looking build and can't wait to see more updates.

Rainy day yesterday so ventured to the shed to work on the truck.

Received my Ebrake set up so that was positioned under the cabin and drilled and tapped the frame. Broke 2 taps off what a PIA, managed to get both out though.







I decided to put the cabin and the tray on the frame so I could make sure I had all my clearances right, ended up had to cut out some more from the firewall on the cabin so that it had enough clearance on the gearbox. The motor is about 4 inches back from where it was originally so I always knew I might have some clearance issues.









I got all my tires on the rims so had to put one on to see what they look like.
