After pricing all of the upgrades, it turns out I did have a budget so transmission and crate motor will have to wait until I save a few pennies. Was able to fire it up this weekend so that felt good. Removed the rain rail around the windsheild and top of doors. Will put doors on and line them up to finish. Then wiring, ac lines, brake booster and paint.

    Bad. Ass.

    Rain rail removal is the perfect touch.

    Your budget wants Torq Thrust 2's in it.

    I had an 88 4WD that had a 350 in front of a TH350. Wouldn’t go much over 70, but it would pull anything.

    After further review, I still stand with the Torq 2.

    To each their own.

    With a truck that bad ass you can put damn near any wheel on it.

    Nice work! Like to see you coil over pics when you get a chance. I put those on my 55 with a 3 link in the rear.

    Have the inner fenders in front, one fender and both doors hung. Wiring is pretty much complete except for exterior lights. I don't have an updated interior pic but just picture it without those wires visible. Had a few woes with rocker arms hitting valve covers so had to change those and torque converter cover rubbing the end of the crank where the flywheel bolts on but both should be fixed now. I ordered a mini-high torque starter so I can chunk this POS 30# starter. I didn't remember how heavy that damn thing was.

    Jeff- that is looking really cool. Is that your final color for the Truck?

    Did you end up buying new fenders or patch those that you had?

    I did buy one fender and saved one. In the process of fixing the other fender, prime and base coat. That is going to be the final color but not the final paint. Figured I'd paint everything first with a coat or 2 and then wait until I'm done scratching it to do the final paint/clear coat. Slate blue metallic is the color.

    Getting really close now. Will put the windows in completely and tape off for final paint. Then finish interior, lights, bumpers, grille and wood bed.

    Getting really close now. Need mirrors, finish bed, bleed brakes properly, figure out the signal and light gremlins and wet sand/buff paint. I'm sure there's more but that's what I can think of.
