    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

Thanks for the kind words!!!

A little more progress. Most of the plumbing done (air, fuel, etc.), battery box made and installed

If I didn't live so far, I'd come over for some plumbing lessons.

I don't know if you could learn much from me, but I'm sure I could learn a lot at your engine building shop.:D

Pat, where did you get the hinges for your CNT Dodge fenders? These fenders hinge in a similar way. I've considered just making them removable instead of hinging them, but we'll see.

Thanks Pat! I went ahead and tried my luck at scratch building some hinges. They're not perfect, but they'll do:

I also made a new air filter assembly. The one that came with the cab was a little large for my taste. There were many styles used these trucks, so I went with a smaller style.

Very nice work Brian,...your air lines look great, I like the brackets you made up to mount on the diff housing.......your fender hinges worked out perfect also....the "home stretch" is getting a lot closer !
