Weather perfect? Check. Ventilation good? Check. Dust and debris in topcoat of clear from the dirty lid that I failed to clean goodly?? Yep... check! Oh well, a quick wet sand will get that out no problem. See? Even despite all this progress screw ups stiiiiiiilllllll happen in this thread. Just no drama video showing it. Although that weird music that usually plays right before a commercial break happens was playing in the head when I saw it.

Happy to report no runs, sags or curtains. Next up is the hood!

Cheers
Dave

Moving forward, the truck is wired up! Rick chose Dakota digital gauges that come with this uber cool control box. Makes wiring a breeze! I installed it right next to the fuse box and used leftover harness looms from my Mopars to secure it all tidy up in the cowl. Easy access, yet up and out of the way. All ends of the crimped terminals are tight and heat shrunk with wrap. I looped the longer lines so in the event someone pulls on the cords they have room to give and the connection at the box isn't compromised.

Friday the hood will be painted, and based on the arrival of the front fenders, when I leave for MCACN Friday everything will be painted!

Oh, and a pair of new Iwata guns are on deck for the next project. What will that be? More over the weekend!

Cheers
Dave

Hey Dave! Looking amazing! I'm not sure how you can work on both this truck and the "Crusty Cuda" at the same time along with the property and living a life!! Just a little "ouch" note. Do yourself and others a favor and flush cut the cut end of the tyrap/wire ties. Those things will slice you real good if you're reaching in to try to move or adjust something and you hit one with your arm. Ask me how I know about those cut ends. I have scars!

Thanks, Phil! Looking forward to seeing you guys soon!

Mark, good point! Er, bad point, actually. Iíll trim those flush for sure.

Fenders are due to arrive Monday, so for me to get them painted by the time we leave for MCACN Friday will be a feat! Itíll be a marathon of PPGical proportions, I tells ya! Itís going to involve late nights, minimal sleep, and no room for screw ups!

Bwwaahahahahaha!! No room for screw ups......man, thatís rich.

Cheers
Dave

All the small remaining parts are painted along with the hood as of today! Just the front fenders are left (oh, and the wheels) and the goal is to have them done prior to leaving for MCACN. I swapped the truck around with the Cuda so I could get that car on lift since I don't need the Fantastical Ford taking up that spot.

You know, this is a nice color but man it's hard to take a good photo of a reflection. That beige is just sooooo creamy!

More later this week!

Cheers
Dave

Not only do you put a lot of effort into the work you do on the cars and truck, but you also put a lot of effort into posting great pictures and entertaining commentary. Thanks

Thanks, Freddie! I try and make my posts enjoyable since itís such a fun hobby, and hopefully since I make the same mistakes we all do, everyone finds humor in my screw ups since theyíve seen themselves do exactly what I just done did! Errr...something like that...

Iím pretty sure the next restoration/hotrodification/barn build I do Iíll have to do some kind of video commentary to keep the entertainment value up! Actually, I think after Crusty is up and running the next project is to finish up the shops. I sort of out those in holy my buddy out with his truck. So once this heads out of here Iíll be back on hammering in tongue and groove pine again for all to enjoy.

Fun stuff!!!

Cheers
Dave
