Well spring break didnít start how I wanted to, didnít get the trans or the dash. On Saturday I was alone, dad was still in parker working on a job, I decided to build a bender cart from ground up by myself (design, cut, and welded it myself) not bad for a crippled lolÖ The casters I bought I cant use two of them, because I need two locking wheels. So going to mount those and the clamp next time when I come back with the other wheels and ram.

On Sunday we got a few hours of work in, got the bumper back on. Finished some welding on the front, finished the skid plate, and mounted the power steering resivoir and took the stock pump mount cut it down quite a bit and was able to put the new tc pump in the exact same position. Just need to get the serpentine pulley and then a stock belt without ac should work. We built the tabs for the P.S. cooler to but waiting to mount until after radiator done, to make sure lines and hoses donít get interfered with. The tranny mounts got welded, for his second time doing metal tigging not bad, his aluminum welds are much nicer. He is on his third bottle in his tig machine.







On Monday we started the radiator mount, got the top tube in (building the top plate it connects to today), we completed our bottom fixed mounts. We built it all from scratch just used the rubber from kartek (the top one is like 3/8 to skinny, terrible design or mold). We tried using a torch and bending the bottom ones but did not like the way the radius affected the way the rubber sat on the mount so we welded the sides. Doing it all with grinder and cut off wheels, and clamps and hammer for bending lol. We rarely use our plasma cutter, trying to get a table for it. We should complete the radiator today and maybe the engine cooler mount as well.

Yesterday we finished the top radiator mount had a slight modification



Air intake mounted, just need the straps, they were sold out when I went to kartek on friday



Got the NEW older model water pump installed


Installed the engine oil filters, had to ditch the racing filters for smaller ones to fit behind the skid plate, but its below the motor so the stock pump in the pan should be good enough





----------

Today we started on the hood, mounting the clip and qtr fenders, very happy with the design. Less than 10 seconds to dismount, no hood pins to line up, very rigid design









Mounted the horns




For front just have to get steering ram make tabs, mount overflow tank when it shows up, fab new firewall and install throttle cable and computer

Here are the pictures from yesterday, we jump to the back since only thing left we could do in the front was firewall.
Mounted the fire extinguisher



Mounted the blue light I got from swap meet, its huge, but we mounted it so it can easily be put on for 1450 races with a quick disconnect wire, looks like a cartoon character with a blue round ear



Got the antenna mount and gps mount done




Completed the fuel filler neck, went with a simple design, you don’t have to go over the fender and nice straight flow as well as it should work just fine when the spares get moved.



Fuel filters are mounted, one is a spare





Next we tackled the rear skid plate 1/8 6061 we needed 23 degrees, we do not have a break just a little one for sheet metal. We got it cut to length and first used our back-bending technique and got to 12 degrees


Then we decided to mount it to some saw horses with plate and concrete back board, heated it up and we were getting a few degrees but the back was lifting. Had my brother come out to hold it down, and he couldn’t so he decides to get on it, this is the end result on the next bend attempt



Went back to our original back-bending technique and we are nearly there, after messing with that we decided to get the shop all organized and undercoat the back of the fenders






Today we are pulling the coilovers and scrubbing the truck for the first time, and dads rule is… if bedsides hit we are doing the spare relocation now instead of shaving bedside. I have wanted them on the sides standing up from beginning, original builder said wouldn’t fit, so we put them in the middle instead of his flat design. After we redid the rear suspension and got everything setup correctly and bedsides mounted to cover the rearend, we learned they would of fit just fine. So it has always been a plan to eventually move them over there, especially with how hard it is to get a tire up on that top one with just one person. After finishing the skid plate and doing that, we are going to lay out all the plumbing so I can figure out which fittings I still need and hoses for intake and radiator. Already $600 deep in just hose and fittings.

Got the rear skid mounted used a bracket up front kind of like how we did hood, but reverse



Before scrub




Here are pictures from the scrub, the tape measure pictures and a majority of them are on my brothers fiancťe camera but she went to be before I could upload them









Here is the bedside, you can see it needs more clearance, the top is fine

Here is the other scub photos.










We got all the plumbing laid out, got quite a bit of fittings I still need and another 30ft of an8 for a total of 50ft. I figure out that my motor does not have a return line, the stock setup had a fuel pressure regulator in the tank, so I have to buy one of those $100+ regulator and run a return line back from up at the motor. Beside the return line all our lines are mostly -8, so if any motor upgrades will be good. We set it up to be real clean and few fittings to prevent leaks, should look good. On my way home no updates for a few weeks.

school ended and dad completed his remodel... both back in AZ and ready to complete this truck... we got lots of parts to install and hoping to have this truck in the dirt soon

was really hoping to have the alternator on today, but ran into a snag, the lower bolt holes were wider apart then the mount holes. I was worried I would have to weld a chunk of aluminum to side of mount and drill and tap. Decided to call powermaster to see if they had the correct one i was not aware of... Turns out i was in luck but i would not be able to get it in the thermal coat like this one had hopefully it wont take long to exchange it..... started on plumbing the radiator... top is done minus a bit of welding and putting a bung for temp sensor









parts came today
