Right now want to get it mobile under own power so we can move it off the hoist. It's been taking second place to other work.

Why does one top radiator bracket cost $9, and the other one over $60. Thats nutz. Stole brackets off D1 to modify. YRM had galvy ones but none in stock. Working front to back. So ordered hood prop and cable plus accelerator bracket etc. Decided on placement for ECU and how to do metal dash.

Rear Door mounted after drilling new holes in it rather than the bed. Locks fitted so doors latch. Had to open up the key hole on one door that had been drilled wrong by a few mm. Grr.

My one mistake or biggest one to date is not getting a series BH. So what we are doing is locating the Ecu high up on the BH in front of the passenger shielded from water ingress. Instruments will be centrally located together with switches and power outlets. These will be on a platform with two fuse boxes located behind. One fusebox powered the other switched.

So it end up pretty series like. Roverx used a series dash on his truck and it looks great.

OK.... I've got a Vintage Air A/C unit that I'm going to install in place of the std. fan, so will be doing a full dash to hide it. Will also be mounting the Megasquirt in front of the passenger too once I have the dash vents secured closed.

Trucks moved back inside the shop and can be worked on.
Brake lines plumbed in.
Tunnel fabbed up and is in the current rough form, needing some fettling for final fitting. Once that's final its on to the floor sections and then some seat box repair.
Seat box is from an early Defender or 90/110 and needed trimming to accommodate the LT230/Auto combination.

Once those steps are done, then the box, tunnel and floor will be removed, sanded and prepped for primer and paint.

I picked up an early defender seat box for short money and modified it to clear the box combo.
Have to take another look to see how much clearance we have under that squared off section.
Current plans call for painting that section and tunnel. But I also expect some dynamat or similar plus probably some bed carpet/mat over the soundproofing.
But soundproofing can wait. Finishing truck matters more.
