Finally got her in the Garage time to work



Dash Assembly ready to go in



Dash and Steering in.



Again Dash and Steering



Had to make a new body mount



Almost ready to run



Turbo 400 and Dana 20



Face and Rad. Support in.



Converted the Fronts to disc brakes using Blazer calipers and pads



Had to grind some of the knuckle away so the calipers could move



Grill and Lights in place.



Fenders "on", building a exhaust system for her, final prep to start the engine 4 the 1st time since the rebuild.

Gonna be home this weekend hopefully gonna get the exhaust done, do some wiring, and start building the front bumper. Once she is done I'm playing around with the idea of making on board air using the A/C compressor and maybe find a way to setup an on board welder. If anybody has any info on the welder let me kno!

It's been a while since I posted progress so I figured I'd get around to it. Alot has been done since last time I put up pics and these are the most recent that I have. In all actuality the truck is even farther along than these pictures show and she is slated to leave the garage by this weekend. I will get more up to date pics tomorrow and post them but until then.....
