Who built the radiator support, looks like they were a Mad Max fan.




Awesome so far.

LOL, the PO had cut the X-brace and I wanted to add protection for the AL radiator.
I have different / better protection, so the expanded metal grate is going away.

A bit gay, but that's who I am...

I popped on one of the old front fenders and a name suddenly came to mind:

"TourMater"

Not much you can really see, but I've been saddled with some real time consuming shit getting the cab to sit correctly on the frame - namely; having to relieve the firewall in three different spots. Seems it didn't like me moving the engine 1.5" rearward.

Cab is mounted solid, steering shaft is done, brake master cylinder adapter mount done, clutch master mounted, brake lines and proportioning valve done, 3/4 ton front swaybar installed.

Tomorrow I hope to get both master cylinders connected to the pedals - then the only thing that'll keep me from driving this thing is the missing milkcrate.

I looked at it and thought, "hmmm, impact shaft energy would be directed away from Scooter's chest. Strange. I thought he'd want the load on his chest."
