Looks great. You've got quite the truck in-progress. Very impressive.

Got a few questions:
- which axles are you using?
- are you extending the wheelbase (pushing the rear axle back) at all?
- why not galvanize the firewall?

Randy,

Do you have any issues with warping when you galvanize the bulkhead? I have always been interested in doing this and I have always been told it would warp. How did you prevent warping? Or didn't it warp at all?
thanks

I have found the Key to Galv an thin metal and trim is to have the Galv. company not quench the parts after they are dipped to cool them and just have them air dry. This helps with stuff not twisting and warking from the heat..

A few months back I was looking at your TDI build. Now this. Thats f'ing cool! If you are ever looking to sell, I am an email away ha-ha. It's too bad I don't have the know-how to do that kinda shit. Anyways, I look foward future updates.
All the best,

Randy,

Have you had any interference issues with the locationof the steering column and the brake servo on the bulkhead? If so how did you work around this?
Thanks
Ernie
