    Your idea for the switches above the heater vent / radio is awesome! I love the idea.

    Truck looks and sounds great mate :waytogo: It's quite satisfying getting it done. Video is fine, shame about the header leak. Oh well, shite is never really finished is it :cheers:

    Thanks. I made the plate earlier in the year not planing on adding ac. non ac doesn't use those vents. i didn't feel like making a new one so i tried this and i like how it ended up.

    Ya no kidding. Always something. I've been fighting this header leak for a while. One of the head flange bolts keeps loosening up on me. Not sure if the flange is warped either. Might just pick up a good set of stainless headers.

    Had to introduce it to the snow sooner or later. This is not a garage truck by any means. it usually stays parked in the driveway. i have to get the camaro back in there in the spring and a bronco is going in in January for some work.

    Tonight ill be fighting with the wiper motor. The new steering column had delayed wipers and cruise control. cruise control i'm not worried about but the delayed wipers will not work with a non delayed motor (i tried). im going to see if the motors have the same connector. if not im going to try a new pulse module that will plug into the stock harness.

    Long time no update. Fender flares are still in the box. Was having issue upon issue trying to get the Edlebrock adjusted in with the big cam, so i just put the order in for a new Speed Demon. Also ordering a bunch of fittings and fuel line to replace my pieced together fuel lines. And i finalized and idea i had for the door panels so ill be ordering the supplies for that as well pretty soon.

    Here is what i came up with for the door. Headliner will be the same quilted leather.
