It is always exciting to get to this stage in a custom design/build. No matter how many of these I have done, I always love the transition that takes place once it becomes a running and driving unit rather than a collection of parts.
And there is always a list of items to fine tune before it's truly ready for the road. But they're all simple to deal with.
The steering column, brake pedal and bracket are now out of the cab being prepped for paint. The seats are also out. While everything is out of the way, the rear window will be installed and the rest of the cab wiring can be connected, loomed and routed. The heat/AC hoses can also be connected to the main unit and routed to the vent locations. This makes it much easier once the dash goes in.
After that, the custom center console will be built and installed. Then the stereo amp and power inverter will be mounted under the seats. The dual batteries will go inside the Fat50 ammo cans and be mounted behind the seats. The main battery switches will be installed in the back section of the center console. The speakers will also go in.
Once these items are installed, they will be tested. If all is well, the seats, dash, brake pedal and steering column will go in for the final time.
Then it's time for the weatherstripping and doors to go on.
It sounds like a lot, but really, it's all simple stuff that can be done on a Saturday. It may take me longer depending on my pain level, which always rules.
I will take pictures as I go.
