July 2, 2013.  We have completed as much of the fabricating and welding as possible for now.  Time to trailer the old girl to her new home where I will finish the the rest of the project.  Many thanks to my buddy Gary for helping and the use of his garage.




Home sweet Home:  Now I can work on her when every I feel......exciting Smile

Love that color blue and the 3D flames really pop! Sign should say Temporarily Out of Order.

Started to put the bolt on's back on the engine and ran into a snag.  The fan wouldnt fit in the shroud any more. I Guess when we welded the new trany cross member in the angle of the power train changed.  After looking it over I believe that the person who welded the old home made trany bracket had it to high and had to adjust the rad and fan in a lower possition. So I lifted the rad and shroud back up a couple inches.  

It was a good fix, the belly pan wouldnt have fit on where the rad was mounted before. Moving forward

I needed some motivation so I pulled out the remaining new parts that I need to install and came up with a game plan.  10 hours a week till my table is clear.

Very Nice!! Love that when a plan comes together. It will be on the road in no time and then you can really enjoy it. Can I ask why you are using 2 Compressors?

Many people like to run two compressors for quicker tank fill times and increased reliability.

Here is what I got done last weekend.  Project Cockpit Pedals and Shifter.  It took me 3 hours of cleaning the old rug and glue off the floor.



I started with the gas pedal, because.... I don't know, it just seemed right.  I did the best I could to get it closest to the original pedal.


Then I cut the slot for the new shifter, trying to keep it as far a way from the gas pedal so that my foot would have no problem putting the pedal to the metal.  I had to shave the E-brake base a bit.


Next I drilled out the rivets on the stock brake pedal and zip cut the bottom weld.


Marked the holes for the new brake pedal.

To be continued....

I'm back.    I just couldn't leave the brake pedal shaft black, so I gave it a quick rattle and shazam.



Then I had to do more custom fabricating to get the shifter boot ring to fit around the E-brake.

Looks like its gonna be a really nice set up when you get it finished.!!!!! Can you post some photos of the accelerator pedal set up when the linkage is all connected and tell me the length of the cable you decide to use and does the cable come out from the bottom or back of the pedal?? I would appreciate it!!!!..THANKS  ...JOE...
