Need to thank jrallen for the package I got in the mail today. Oem air tube and air box. Going build a custom air box where the battery used to mount and try to enclose it from the elements the best I can. Then use the factory air tube to connect it to the throttle body.

Thanks Man I will see you on my next trip to the Alabama Coast.

That was definitely much faster than I expected. My dad actually works for UPS and I had him drop it off on his way into work yesterday... I'm glad I could help out. Dumpster is looking great, and I look forward to seeing it in person some day.

Ok guys a cold front is moving through and dropped the humidity levels down to manageable. I am finally about over the cold that has had its death grip on me since the 5th of July. I plan on getting some good progress this weekend. I removed the bed again tonight and wired the tail lights. Attached the vent and fuel line to the fuel tank. As soon as I extend the fuel pump wires she will be ready to start.

It was very nice out today. I bet you will get some good progress this weekend.

I will let you know when I'm out there. I am going to try and stop by to see the dumpster.

Finally got the driver side flare finished, I can take it to work to primer next week. I also finished up the rear brake lines, now I just need the rear hoses to connect to the calipers. Going to finish the wiring this weekend and try to start on finishing up everything under the hood in the next week or so.

No, eventually I am replacing the ones I have with JW speaker led headlights. For now a set of Hellas will be good.


Ordered the TG battery bracket today and the cage materials.

Left it outside. It's going to rain tomorrow so I figured I would take advantage of the rain to wash the mud off of the inside and the outside. Oh the top is off too.
