Yeah.... lets hear it far Titus! You Tube is awesome. Speaking of Titus my newest grandson expected to make his appearance around Christmas will carry the name Titus.

Glad you got that worked out Bob! I just watched a bunch of things online that helped me to understand the drive line math.

Learning learning learning!

A better shot of the dashboard with the right fasteners. It's simple, like me.

Tacked the upper shock brackets in place. Made and welded tabs for the front brake hoses.

Couper, I use a Garmin GPS set on "speedometer".

Torchie mentioned today that he had to work on the floor and that it is difficult getting up and down. This is my most important tool in the shop. I wheel the stool to wherever I'm working and use it to help getting up and down.

I finished bending the brake lines and added some clips. The rest of the clips will be put on when the engine and trans are out of the way. Now finishing the motor mounts. Have to buy some hockey pucks.

Cool....Tech Savy Hey

I used to throw stuff on the floor all the time now I make sure I find a place to put it so I don't have to bend down to pick it up.

I'm gona to start on my brakes soon. Once my cab is in place I'll have to decide what type of master cly to use. I'm thinking on of those under floor board deals.

Lets see some pictures of those nice tubing bends

The floor.......😳
I couldn’t wrestle that full sheet of 18 gauge up onto a table to cut it.
And with my BP issues bending over leads to falling over.
I use a stool, or what ever is handy, to help me get up too. bob.

Second attempt at throttle linkage/gas pedal. Not sure I'll use the nos '56 Chevy gas pedal or just weld a spoon type pedal on it. 12 inches of snow kept me busy this morning.

Hey slow down and take care of yourself Torchie.

Looks like your foot well is narrower than mine. Is that a cardboard mock up on your tunnel?
