How will you remove any rust from the inside of the chassis rails before galvanising?

It's going to be acid dipped before galavanizing, so any closed cavities need to have some holes drill anyway. My frame is pretty solid though.

Tranny swap is complete and the truck is back on the road. The new trannsmission is nice and tight and quiet - like how I like my women. It also pays to actually read and follow the Workshop Manual. I thought I could outsmart the tranny during reassembly and it kicked my ass for a long time, until I read the manual and was like "ohhhh, so THAT's how it goes back together"!!!

I think I have learned that no matter how hard you try, these trucks will always leak.

Next up is simple baseline maintenence (hoses and belts), and replacing the rear springs so I can get rid of the dragster look.

The one thing I think Series Ones lack are sills. They look very unfinished. While my truck will not see any and serious rocks, I decided to build some sliders to finished off the bottom of the truck.

These are 2" square 3/16" wall tube, notched to fit the firewall/outrigger. They are painted silver now, but will be galvanized on my next run.

There has not been a whole lot of overt progress on the truck, but the past two months have been filled with sourcing original parts and pieceing together a heating system. The attached pic pretty much sums up all the progress, and despite the new dash paint not matching the rest of the truck, my dash is now back to original.

Here's a list of the recent additions:
1. Sourced a correct, uncut S1 dash panel (Thanks Bobeck!)
2. Installed correct panel lights switch (Pangolin)
3. Installed Smiths dual oil pressure / water temp guage (Thanks Bobeck for the panel!)
4. Installed correct turn signal switch (Pangolin)
5. Installed a Smiths round heater (Thanks Bobeck!) just in time for winter
6. Installed a correct horn button and bracket (Thanks to John from Guns and Rovers)
7. Installed a headlight dimmer switch

A. Should have some correct demisters coming in the mail this week
B. Correct lug nuts and axle limit straps coming from Rovahfarm

My last major project is figuring out how to level the rear of the truck. I may attempt to remove a leaf, or simply install new parabolics.

Looks good! Glad I was able to help out. Let me know how you like the heat from the little shin-burner...

I already like it. It works great and no leaks. I'm looking forward to freezing the top half of my body and burning the lower half.

Looks great!
Is that the correct order for #3 and #4 in your picture?
I ask out of genuine curiosity as my S1 did not have an extra gauge (but will have one).

Good eye. Techincally the turn signal switch seems to always be closest to the gauge panel, but due to holes already drilled in the firewall I put the Smiths gauge in that location. In the end, nothing really seems to be standard when it comes to aftermarket additions on these trucks.

Just FYI RDS has the oil and water gauges with the Series font on the faces that matches the large gauges.

Hmmm, when I talked to George a month ago looking for these parts he didn't have any.
