    Hi all, Iv had the truck or a while now and thought I'll share my progress with others.

    So far Iv tubed the front end and reconditioned the engine. Not to long ago I decided to chop the back and make a start on the tray so here are a few pictures to get the ball rolling image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg

    Started on the electrics today and long story short, I no longer have the keys to the truck :( so Iv decided to wire up my own start up panel! :) As I'm putting the batteries behind the seats, the plan is to put a panel on the central arm rest replacing the lid. I will also put switches for roof lights and other accessories. Iv bought a key switch to wire up to the fuel stop solenoid. image.jpeg

    We must know more about how you no longer have your keys, short story long! Pannel looks good so far.

    I'm guessing that he's welded them into one of the door pillars. I do that sort of thing on a daily basis.

    Rockets?! If only haha may have to rig some up ;) back to the switchs, key switch is for the fuel stop on the pump. Rocker switchs are for first stage ignition and second stage with the start button to fire the old girl up :)
