    I got it out into the sun today. it will be nice to eventually be able to drive it out of the garage instead of pushing it.
    I finished the rear end install. Set the pinion angle and welded the perches on and welded on the shock mounts. Everything is now bolted up.
    Driveshafts are bolted up.

    I will be starting the wiring soon. i have the fuel system lines run, just need to get a fuel resistant fuel pump harness to get the pump ready for wiring. Then get a fuel filter inline and make some brackets to hold my fuel and power steering hard lines.

    Not that much done today, but i did decide on where to put my electrical heart of the vehicle.
    There is a fairly large storage box under the passenger seat. I am able to fit the battery, Engine ECM and the fuse block

    I can hide it all in there and keep the technology hidden so it still seems a bit vintage . ;)

    Well i have slacked off. Been busy working and the decision to slow down with the wiring, has been reeeeaaally slow. I have the computer harness lengthened and roughly ran across the botor, but that is about it.

    BUT
    I did splurge and got myself the rear seats for my Christmas present to myself.

    I need to get off my arse to finish up, this time change is still killing me and taking out whatever motivation i have after work :(

    I really like what you've done here, and compliment you. I think the only thing I would change would be the wheels, for me they just don't promote the right vibe. Finding the "right wheels" is gonna be tricky due to the axle width. Please don't view my comment as being a negative, from one builder to another, you really have done a darn cool job on this project, I applaud you.

    When you mount them crazy glue some lug nuts & bolt ends into the empty holes so it looks like you have 12 stud hubs- that'll impress the yokels :D

    Slowly the wiring is getting terminated.
    I got most of the computer harness completed, and am just about finished the power needs. Then it is the lights and dash and them secure everything.
