Some of the work that was done while I was gone.

Transmission filters are mounted and the lines to the transmission have been run. May build a small skid for it, but right now the tall filters are fine, no need to switch to a smaller filter.









Started fully welding the seat mount tubes, and finished other small things


Got the skeleton built for the center console, ready to start laying glass.



I brought back some autometer warning light sensors. Monday going to order the fuel safe bulkhead electrical connectors for the dual in tank fuel pumps. Also going to order our center support, I was searching for a spicer assembly but all I kept finding was just the 1.5748 bearing. So I will probably order the IED poly version and if it does not have a spicer bearing I will upgrade it.

Got all the electrical components and draw requirements laid out in a nice excel spreadsheet. We are looking at 24/25 breakers (each size indicated), 19/20 sealed switches, and it also tells us the circuits amp draw, what size wire we are going to use, what weatherpack connector needed, and what dash tag we are going to use. I plan to post a copy of the excel sheet when we are done with all of the electrical setup, I am sure there are quite a few people who would be interested in having it, since many of the components I use are common for everyone. It is very easy to understand. All the info was obtained from the manufacture or their website.

Console is in, minus the three dzus fasteners.



FAST Fab door sills, these will be on our site as well with an introductory sale when you buy both the sill and foot rests.

We got back on the truck yesterday, we were able to modify the center support mount we built. It goes in the truck tomorrow, I am still waiting on parts the replacement shaft got backordered. The driveshaft should be here within first week of september, I am hoping my connectors show up I order from another guy. Got the tach and ram coming from ORW. We are placing the order for all the electrical parts end of this week.




the support is welded into the brace, the bearing is clamped down on by a strip of 3/16 and 1/8 with 1/8" lips to keep from twisting.




as usual flat black and bolt on part is blue...

Dimple died fuel straps


Fuel pumps








New spare tire mounts, doing one side completely first but making both sides at same time. Driver side has the bedside tube and a hoop left to complete it, we used miter cuts to get a nice tight fit against the tire.

Wow 8:30 pm and we just finished getting the center support bolted in, rear hangers welded on, and new H.A.D. driveshaft in. At full bump we have no binding what so ever. Exhaust tips clear wish bone, even though it wouldn’t of matter. After expo that is being removed and we are building our own wishbone.

Here are pictures of the spare tire setup, along with the new fuel filler mount, and our custom ratchet hold down. We are building the ratching part into the cage work and stitching our own straps that start as a single strap and split into a web/cradle setup to hold the tire down evenly.












Passenger side



Fuel filler






Strap Setup



----------

Parts



















The rear center support, we heavily modified the original one. This one bolts in and has adjustment, was put in place to where the driveshaft ended up at the correct angle. The rear hangers had to be flipped to the back side of the support. Got it all bolted up and put the driveshaft in at about 7:45 tonight.






Midship setup


Lot of scraping underneath, to get it clean




Driveshaft in

man! I had a 9" in my 67. If I only knew what I had

on a side note: I blew 4 sets of spider gears out of that rear end, after I built the motor (352)

It is based off of a Ford 9" but it is a complete custom built housing using 3.5" thick wall tubing and laser cut and bent plates that have been welded on a jig by GMR, you can find them at thegmr.com they now have a pro touring division and make hubs and suspension for classic cars as well as rear ends.

Dash is complete minus the GPS which I will get later on, dash and console (mounted the starter button in console next to intercom) are ready for paint.







Didnt do much to truck, had to help brother get new transfer case in so he could get back up to san francisco

I have been working hard on the new graphics, had to make some compromises, but I am confident that it will be better then the previous one.
