Thanks. Needs a bath, and for momma to pick out some wheels she likes. And for the snow to melt so I can drive it home.

Those are the steel chromies after plasti-dip. Just so my wife could see it needs black wheels.

Lol. It was a farm shop for keeping things working, but since I've switched to John Deere, and only have one good employee, well it's a toy box now.

Finished trimming entry and rubber coating the floor, then welded the steering wheel in plus the hook to hold it.

Engines out, one frame rail cleaned up, most the suspension figured out from extending the arms 2 inches, but just figured out my exhaust manifolds are way to wide. Now I have to decide if $200 block huggers will work without any measurements or if I should start cutting and make my own front frame. Damn it.

Finished frame welding. Mounted the tb higher axle side making way better flex, I'm getting 19 inches on the pass and 22 driver, looks like I'll need limiters. Everything is working well so I set the engine in. Have to mount it way high to clear the pan, looks like a cowl hood is in my future.

Lol. Zoomies out the hood? Actually looking real hard at putting a flow master 40 where my engine fan would be and just dumping it there. This is if I can make the manifolds clear the ps pump and the ac
