So I suppose I should find a new cam sensor so this thing can run.

Are you sure you're ready for that step? This is years in the making....

The shocks are still in my barn so I thinks you have a little time before it needs too run.

I like the way you think!

I've been taking my time on this build, or just having trouble finding time....so it fits in the 'build criteria'

I bet I only have 5 more hours tops, finish spring buckets, drive shafts, steering, and shocks. Maybe even do some booty fab to get a radiator mounted in it.

Taking your time to fit 'build criteria' would have required much more lawn ornament time. You've made light work of this job so far. Done some quality work, impressive. All the button up stuff left is easy in comparison to what you've done.

On its own weight




Spring buckets bolted in, not modified yet. Gonna space them off the frame a little but cutting and bending so the springs sit vertical




Also need to shim the spring pirches or something so the coil doesn't bow like it is


Radius arm mounts just tacked in, no crossmember yet


Axle is a touch off center to the driverside, maybe a 1/2", sitting a little taller than I figured.

That's all for today
