Re: Francis the Tow Pig - 1949 GMC 250 Dually

Busy weekend at Aces High Speed Shop.

I was able to get the exhaust fab'd up over the axle (probably the easiest part of the weekend!). Knocked out the door panels. Mounted the proportioning valve. Did some more painting, inner fenders, firewall, assorted parts. Set the cab back on the frame(hopefully for the last time). Installed Lokar shifter linkage (least enjoyable project of the weekend!). And last but not least, started working on the chassis harness.

A few snafu's, first was my Cal-Van 165 inline flaring tool...ended up destroying the 3/16" insert on the first flare of the day, so the brakes didn't get done. Second was a wrong temperature sender in my kit...we'll blame this on Summit, not Classic Instruments. Third, my box full of firewall plugs and grommets did not have an 1 1/4" that brought running wires to a screeching halt.

All-in-all I made some decent progress, albeit, not as much as I wanted, but we are getting there!

In other notes, Classic Instruments has AWESOME customer service.

On to the pictures.
