Well last weekend I got a few things done. The engine is in, the brakes are fixed, got the lower half rattle canned. Tonight I was able to get the engine fired up. Tried to get my hurst style shifter in and the threads are boogered up in the floor.




Also have a video as soon as I figure out how to embed, I'll post it.

It's not that far along guys. I just threw it together to get to driving it. When I got it, it had already had the bad metal cut out. I just screwed in place what I could. I had already done the brakes and suspension when it belonged to Chuck. When I was cutting the heater duct out to put the cargo floor in I broke a brake line and had to repair it. It was in bare metal for the most part when Chuck brought it to me. I just sprayed the colors on it to keep nit from rusting any further. As I have time, I will weld on it and do a panel at a time until all of the body work is done. Then I plan on putting a good paint job on it.

I did notice Harbor Freight has it on sale this week. Costs more than the new seals do though.
