Fun starts tomorrow morning.

Going to start cutting the firewall and cap the ends of the frame. Sunday should be a good build day as well.

Tonight I'm going to have dinner in Canada

You could have bought a fire wall from the junk yard and started from there. That's pretty much what you are doing.

No no I'm keeping the doors / windshield / most of the cab. Just moving the motor inside with me to keep me warm.
