Next time you're down this way I'll put in a good word and maybe Fc will school you on proper Lincoln locker etiquette.

KOH?! What a blast. You guts kicked ass. Anytime, anyplace. You just say the word. And if mike's going to build another car then I have just the motor and trans for him!

Getting closer. The chassis is good to go, paint, assembled, yada yada. The cab is 95% done body work wise. Worked on the fenders, hood and skirts last night. Should be able to primer it this weekend then get the bed caught up.

Welding spiders? Just MIG them. Never had a problem with it.

Details kill me. But this will be worth the effort when I am done. I filled in all the threaded parts of the old knobs with machinable epoxy then taped to fit new switches.
Dash is much simpler and cleaner than it was from the factory or after whoever owned this drilled holes.
Gages are updated and added LED light rope stuff.

Hey Justin, do you have any contact info for him? I'm not registered on ih8mud and that is the only contact that he gives. I'd like to know if anyone else is doing this or if he would sell me the diagram so I could make it myself...

Justin, what did you do to prep the undercarriage? Did you wire wheel the whole thing, or just POR over the top?
