Things finished this weekend.


Fully mounted the radiator in its new raised location
Turn signals wired, although I need a flasher mod.
Rear shock bushings made and installed
Rear shocks fully mounted except reservoir, they will be mounted in the bed.
Exhaust finished from the cat back, the front section is going to be a little tricky
Calipers removed for paint
All suspension bolts tightened and torqued
New to me brake master cylinder bolted on along with PSC reservoir.

My flares and tailgate are at work just about ready for paint.

Got my trail gear battery tray yesterday. Looks like it will work perfect for relocating the battery under the rig. Going to build in a hinge and clamp to make it easy to dropout the battery.

Pleasantly absurd, though.

Beautiful, John. You are a hack allright....

By the way - seeing the Flop back in your avatar bought a brief tear to my eye.

Yes, I miss it also. I think the pain will go away in a month or so when I am driving the Dumpster though.
