The parts are slowly coming together , I have found a rust free stepside box, will have the new tires and rims by the end of the month , I have 2 burgandy seats from a Toyota Supra that will be installed shortly , I need to mod the stock seat rails to allow the Supra seats to work , the drivers Supra seat is power adjustable .
Now that its warming up ,I can get started on installing the sound system . at the same time as the sound systems ,I will be doing power door locks using the remote starter to actuate them. It is going to be a busy summer .
I will be making a new center console as well but I need it to be a bit warmer for the fiberglass to set up .
I do plan on taking lots of pictures .

I have decided to relabel the truck , It is badged as a Mazda , but is has so many Ford Parts used in it , I thought I should get badging to label it as a Fordza instead , I could have said a Mazdord as well but that just doesnt sound right

Well it took an hour and a lot of fiddling ,but I finally got all the bulbs changed in the instrument cluster . what a lot of work to change 6 bulbs , hopefully I wont have to do that again any time soon. I also removed the ashtray and cigarette lighter panel, in order to start the construction of my gauge cluster .
the side glove box is now just a door ,behind will be located the equalizer for the sound system . I hope t I can finish the sound system.
Went on a road trip ,3 hrs round trip to pick up the tires and rims , I hope to have them installed sometime this week .
also this week the cap is coming off and it is being replaced with a soft tonneau cover. I will post pics later this week when the changes are made .

When In was at work today , I made one of the best scores ever . I met an acquaintance of mine while on break , we got talking about cars and he mentioned that be was rebuilding a 5.0 Stang. he also said he had an extra pair of seats. The best part was they matched my interior and cost me 50 bucks for the pair

so am I , they are so comfortable , there is one drawback and that is the leg support on the side getting in and out , that is temporary . It wont be a problem once I lower the truck .
