Truck looks great.
Clearing the front lot, hmmnm, is someone building another garage?

Thanks for the feedback guys.

I there any info on whether the Sanden(s) use less horsepower?

Got some finish work done in between a zillion other projects, including clearing the front lot which is why there are logs everywhere.

The direct replacement is the Pro6Ten, which appears to be a Sanden that is repackaged to bolt in just like the old A6.  Its been around a while and seems to have good reviews.

The advantage of using the Nostalia Air Sanden conversion is that you get a smaller bracket package, and its mounted all to the outside of the valve cover.  The stock A6 brackets (built like a tank!) include a piece that goes over the valve cover and bolts to the intake, which is a PIA if you need to replace valve cover gaskets or check the valve clearance.   However, the Pro6Ten also gives you a stock GM appearance, which may be what you want.

I used a Sanden compressor and brackets from Vintage Air; however, I was already using custom hoses because I had converted to a parallel flow condenser.

Bolted up my tow bar to see how the holes line up, not liking how it fits. May end getting some brackets cut later on so I dont have to drill the frame. Only 2 holes lined up, the others are not in convenient spots to drill.

The nice new painted steering gear I've been waiting to put on is not the right one. I think it come off one of my dodges. I think I robbed the one I had a year or so ago when I rebuilt one for another truck. I have an extra, but it sat in the weather for along time so I'm not going to rebuild it. I'll just buy a new one.

Got the O2 bungs welded and installed. Not sure if I'll have another update. Will be in Phoenix for the next 4-5 days.

With the damage you described is just a door and fender + something on the rollpan.  Have any pictures of the damage?  I would find the parts and fix it.  Your biggest expense is going to be paint.

Heard from the insurance and they upped the offer from $4300 to $5800. I happy with that. From what Iíve read and since I have regular insurance on my truck, that is a very good offer.

the shifter will not come out of the same hole if you don't care about cutting another hole.  I'm going to do a gear vendor in my truck so i don't have a second hole.
my brother in law that lives in georgia was trying to sell a classic car to a guy in south carolina and he gave them a bill of sale and the crazy lady at the dmv in south carolina wouldn't except it. she was to lazy to look it up in the book. i had to do that here in ky when i bought a car in georgia and i had to explain it twice to the sheriff's office and to the dmv lady and they had to get the book out and said " you're right sir" and they just completed it.  i think i had the rule printed out too. they have something else up here were if you have owned the car for over 5 years and you get your neighbors to sign then you can get a title.
