Finally got the battery box done - lots of patchwork and odd pieces and fitting it back to the seatbox but I just gave it a fit and all the holes line up!

It's going to get stripped then onto galvanizing with a shit ton of other little parts in a couple weeks. I will be a little sad not to see the welds and remind myself of all the work into it.

Haha - there is a bead on my bulkhead that sticks out on the LH side that makes me smile. But there were a couple of decent HAZ sections on this that won't survive galvy.

Box just got dropped off at GSD for Line-X treatment. Once the seatbox is all out back together I will feel like I made some progress.

Thanks Adrian!

Got my LT77 seatbox covered in Line-X. It will
be one of the last things installed but real happy with how it came out and had to take a pic. I had the box covers done in regular powder.

GSD also did some media blasting so now I can drop off a good sized pile of steel to get a layer of zinc.

Got the radiator supports from the 2.5 to work with the 200tdi radiator and frame. It might not be totally correct but seems to work/look ok.

I also got a nice cut in the forehead from where the hood came down on me as I was moving things around and didn't have the support on good enough.

I also had to fix a 200tdi radiator. The plastic nun that goes to the overflow tank got pulled off somehow so I got a few brass pieces from Lowes. I tapped the plastic with 1/8" NPT and the adapter for the hose barb threaded nicely on. I then got some JB Weld and layered that around it. Not sure if it will work but keeping fingers crossed it will hold for a little bit and I can get a new radiator on stage 2 of the build.

Why not just take it to a radiator shop to get them to fix it? Theres a place in Bradley a stones throw from the train station behind a bar that works on radiators.

Didn't think a radiator shop would even look at a plastic radiator to fix. I did just drop my expansion tank to those guys in Bradley. I brought it to get powder coated and the heat melted the solder.

Btw - saw your dads truck in Fair Haven today.

Yeah either the solenoid or starter gave up the ghost last weekend on him. Lol, sorry had it in my head that your radiator was metal and not plastic. Didn't think that solder would do that under powder-coating process.

Bummer about your dads truck but I always like seeing it.

Yeah - plastic - that's why that nipple broke in the first place, haha. I'll give this a go for now and will just keep an eye on it.

Weird about the solder - they must have had things hot in the baking booth!

Every update to this thread is more impressive than the last, and also makes me realize just how little I know about these trucks. Nice work! Have enjoyed following your build.

Thanks!

To be honest it's so easy to document as I have my phone while working in the shop so a click and a quick blurb and its updated.

I like reading other builds (even read the flat Fender and IH forums) so even if I post one thing that might help someone its worth it. Or even better when someone gives me a tip!

And the best way to learn is to just dig in - I've learned a ton with this build and have a bunch more to learn.

Thanks as well!

I am sure an Alisport would work but my budget was blown about 4 months ago, haha

I want to try and get as much of the exhaust done as I can this week so I can get to work on the tub. Bunch of tub parts at galvy so once those are done I want to start putting the tub back together.

DP is in the truck but here is the crossover and the Magnaflow muffler. I am using V-bands which takes more work but are pretty quick to get on and off.

I've been using stainless hangers from Summit - each one has needed some bending to work.
