^Thanks for the compliment... I'm pretty happy with the way the trucks coming together
Fitted some more of the interior bits, gauge bezel's will need to be painted black so they blend into the background a little better. Current struggle is getting the new rear window rubber around the glass and into the frame. Ended up taping the rubber to the external frame in an attempt to get the twist out of the new rubber...will see if it works
Progress is slowing due to a string of parts arriving that aren't the right part or the right part arrives "according to the manufacturer" and then simply doesn't fit.. and making the parts either from scratch or modifying to fit is slow and annoying at the least
Some minor updates.. most of which can't be shown. Updated the carbs to 50cc accelerator pumps and added dual quick change covers for the vacuum secondaries. Changed out the thermostat housing for a straight unit. Rear brake lines installed, used the TItan tool for flaring the lines...highly recommend it. Connected and ran the choke and hand throttle cables through the firewall, just need to cut them for length. Nice part about having dual carbs with manual chokes is I can utilize the original dash controls.
