In case you guys are wondering what takes me so long to build a car....I tend to get interrupted frequently (and I'm not good at saying "No"). The tenant that rents the majority of the farm keeps me busy with fixing some of his equipment. Here's the second wagon I've done for him. Seized king pin on the one front wheel, combined with a 150 hp John Deere....I think the control arms were rated for about 140hp....lol. I had to slice the sleeve that the king pin swivels in, chisel it open and then weld it back together. Straighten the control arms and its good to go. I have managed to get seat belts, carpet and the seat in my truck though, so I'm getting close! And yes, I'll be making a small carpeted panel to hide the top of the radio.

Thanks everyone. Pops, that seat is the second row seat out of a mid 2000's (I think) Cadillac SRX. Just a cheap pic n save acquisition that I had recovered. I wanted something with manual adjustment (DW is significantly shorter than I am), and the passenger side seat back folds flat and then rolls right over onto the floor to expose storage inside the seat pan. I am trying to get it the truck buttoned up over the next few days, at least "appraisal worthy" so that I can get some insurance on it and start debugging.

Thanks for the info Bill. I really like the way that seat looks and does what I need a seat to do for my Willys project.
