Looks great! What if your roof finished with?
Thanks. Seat box, foot wells, rear tub, wheel arches, and roof are all coated in Line-X (link)

Fuel badge upgrade

Replaced the fuel badge with an aluminum one. Retaining bolts are stainless steel and I used plastic washers to prevent contact corrosion.

Sure thing! It's an On-OFF-On switch:
The bottom On position is for the "normal" function of the electric fans... the switch supplies power to two fan relays via the X-Fan thermostatic switch. One fan comes on at a lower temp and the second fan at a higher temp.

The center or OFF position cuts off power to the electric fans.

The upper ON position is an "override" position, and it supplies power directly to both fan relays, bypassing the X-Fan switch to turn both fans on.

Have had a tailgate that wouldn't lock as long as I owned the truck. Finally fixed that with the spring kit off eBay, so happy to have a vehicle that is somewhat secure now!

Removed some old shocks, springs and bird nests. Fitted some new towers, shocks, springs, bushings and rust treatment. Also did new hub seals, rotors, resto calipers and pads while we were in there.

Long story and even longer rebuild, but thought I'd get my a$$ in gear and finish my 6-year rebuild. I've stripped it down and painted it quickly before moving to TX, but it was my first attempt at painting/bodywork. Somehow I got two different tints and the doors and end caps were darker than the rest of the body. Soooo, I'm sanding it back down and am going to give it another go. The plan is to have it ready for SCARR 2017. Hopefully I'll get it done well before then, but if I don't commit to a date I'll just keep slackin. Since the initial rebuild I've put about 500 miles on it. And damnit I want to drive it again.

Replaced the dash finisher today. Figured out the glass 10A fuses I ordered are too long...just like the ones in the local parts stores. The 2.5s and 12s fit. So frustrating.

What started out as fixing a paint chip in the bulkhead, full doors and a Badger top, has tumbled into the following:

- R380 replaced since the synchro in 2nd was starting to go
- Transfer case sealed
- New fuel pump
- 411 gears
- New foam, seat covers and heaters for the front seats
- Body and frame are extremely clean, but any signs of corrosion have been taken care of
- New stainless brake lines
- Several other small items that I'm forgetting about

Still to come
- Full repaint
- Heated windscreen install
- a plethora of parts from SDO to install
- New head unit and speakers
- Rear bench seat modified with headrests and extend the back

Finally starting to come togetherClick image for larger version

Aren't your front shocks upside-down?

Put a powered 8 inch sub in the 110. Provides the missing low end that the dash speakers can't put out. More then enough. About 140$ on amazon with wiring harness.
