Needed a shot of motivation so I knocked out a cosmetic project this weekend. Capped lug nuts are gone. All but one was destroyed in the process.

Spare tire carrier bracket is off and I'm preparing to put the mantic carrier on this weekend.

The interior is still stripped bare with most surfaces covered in dynamat extreme.

Every accessory gets a fresh ground and power I'll likely have as many relays in this thing as in my D2.

Picked her up from Ship's Mechanical in Portland. Gone is the 3.5 twin carb V8 & LT77, replaced by a tuned 3.9 V8i mated to an auto trans and Ashcroft console. Added Air con also.

I'm probably going to replace it. Likely cheaper/easier than refinishing the wood. Apparently they were available in leather. Off to try & find one...

Easiest way (I know of) to tell OEM from Ashcroft is OEM has 2 cup holders, whereas the Ashcroft unit has an iPhone holder in the same spot.

Haha. No. That's been on it since roughly 2009 right after I bought the truck. It was something like a 4 pound donation. It's held up surprisingly well.

I installed the britpart td5? slam panel. It replaced the original one that I had to cut very sloppily to fit the full size Allisport rad/intercooler.

I spent about four hours installing a Tuffy console. Should not have taken that long but it was a bit fiddly making spacers to mount it and I did have to wire-up a new stereo to go in it.

Oh, and I had my 12-yr. old son helping me which tends to add time to the process but counts for quality time together and along the way, I can hopefully teach him a thing or two.

I installed this today. I'm sure it will do nothing heater wise but it will give me a steel ground plane for my Satcom gear.
