Well right now its a money issue.I got the fuel cell mounted an done and gonna run braided lines down the side of the frame..Still waiting on the panels to be done from the body shop.Hoping next week i`ll go get them.Plus the magnum needed some work as well this past week so money went out there for repairs.I been slowly putting it together and still need alot to do and loot as well.But i havent gone to look at that truck.I`m selling all my big block parts right now as i need to put some cash away so i can get more parts to finish this thing..But once its done i know for sure i`ll be looking for another toy.. Right now i gotta get this 1 done, repaint my black truck in the spring and then redo the body on my 70 cougar next fall.. Hoping to get ahead of the game by the end of next year..

thanks
pat

I'm in.  ;D

Might as well update while I'm here.... got the fuel system all set up and all of the wiring done. I welded the O2 bung in and will start fabricating the exhaust tomorrow. I should be ready to test fire it next week. I still haven't decided on a color!

ZY1 21U 21 LIGHT BLUE METALLIC

Well I fired it up today but had to shut it down bc one of the braided fuel lines that go to the TBI has a pin hole in it. Otherwise it's coming together nicely!

That'll be a decision I have to make soon! GM no longer has the fuel lines so I'm going to have to make a set apparently. I need to replace the front axle u-joints and adjust the transfer case linkage. Aside from stupid little odds and ends I'll be soon onto the body work.
