Thanks!

Got my steering column and pedals mocked up. The old column was missing several parts and had an add on blinker switch. This one came from an early 60s Dodge truck. Just had to swap the shaft so the steering wheel splines would match. For pedals I modified a set of Fiero pedals and used a Wilwood clutch master and a big bore Mopar brake master. Iíll probably start on wiring next before I start putting the front clip back together. I saved the whole wiring harnesses from the Dakota; Iím just going to modify it and use it.

Good thinking on re-using the wiring.

Yeah, Iíve used quite a few universal street rod wiring kits. The wiring itself is good but it seems like the fuse box and connectors (if you get any) are really low quality unless you get one of the high dollar big name brands. Later model factory stuff is pretty good quality just takes a little time to strip it down to the bare essentials of what you need for a basic harness. Plus you have a lot of plugs, sockets, etc that you can reuse.

Iím not going to paint this but I am going to address a few spots where itís rusted through. I found a core support and another passenger door that will help fix the serious cancer.

Started getting the front clip back together. I got this grill off the other truck; itís a 1959 but itís in better shape and I like the look. Iíve got a little rust repair on the driverís fender and the passenger door but the rest is going on as is.

with the white ''teeth'' stickin' out the front gives it a kinda 'matar look.
