Re: my 68 shortbed build

got the heather mounted under the dash tonight, then I took the old heat control bezel and modified it to hold the electric knobs instead of the sliders, I still need to paint the face of it crinkle black and polish the rest.

Re: my 68 shortbed build

Looks good! Is that just a "normal" bag setup with drop spindles and cupped arms? Seems pretty low, is the stock crossmember on the ground now?

Looks good! Those cupped arms made a big difference up front. Now you have to get the back down some more
