OK got started on some tubes for the rear bumper. They follow the angle from above and below the cell and the space between them is the perfect height for a license plate as well, since pre smog in Cali this thing will be driven on the street.

Ok i'm starting to get the smaller items knocked out so I can pull the motor to get that over to the builder. Then I can finish welding and painting everything. Got the Power Steering Solutions reservoir/cooler mounted up today. Also started on the throttle cable brackets but I didn't finish that yet or got any photos of that since it's not done yet anyways.

OK knocking off a few more mounts today. Got the trans cooler mounted up today. Also will be mounting an oil filter for that as well. Started making template to finish boxing in the firewall as well. Lots of little more tedious things to get in place before tear down, final weld and painting the chassis.

The spare can't go any farther forward because the sway bar is between them. Plus is the spare comes loose it will be flying off the back of the truck. Gonna run a 3 point strap and have never had a problem with those before.

That is an extra large Triton Engineering Cooler. Similar to a CBR Cooler but awesome quality which I have seen some current CBR are lacking in that department.

OK so more small tedious brackets and such on the truck today. Mounted my spin on trans filter AND a spin on fuel filter brackets today. Also got a tab welded onto the fire wall for the throttle cable to bolt onto the attach to the go pedal as well. Also was making more templates to finish boxing in the fire wall to seal that up after welding it all.

OK got more of the firewall tacked into place. I will fully weld it once drivetrain is out so I can weld the inside and outside of it easily. Also welded a tab for the brake light switch as well.

OK so knocking more things off the to-do list. Added a couple diagonal tubes to another 3rd removable clamp for under the spare so if the tire is flat there is more tubes for the rim to sit onto with the 3 point strap holding it down. Also made some tabs for the 3-point straps to hook onto as well. The Driver side tab had to be longer since that tube is bent to clear fuel cell fill plate so I added a piece of plate on top of it for the tire to rest onto instead of an edge of 3/16" plate.

OK got my fuel pressure regulator and Flex Fuel sensor mounted today, which isn't exciting since it's just 2 tabs, no photos of that. Also did the cage to rocker floor boxing in as well.

OK so i got the Restomod Air Conditioning Evaporator mounted up in the cab AND i got half the bulkhead mounted to run the lines. Also once I got that mounted up I mocked up the seat and tested the gas pedal and such and I realized the gas pedal was in the wrong spot and too close to brake pedal so I made new gas pedal And I cut/moved the brake pedal over about 1.5". Everything clears and is super comfortable with my feet too which is necessary
