Ive been trying to get my buddys dodge Durango squared away in between but that's another horror show

I finished welding and grinding the welds down on the passenger side cab corner on my 81 C20 then painted with some self etching primer.

Re: What did you get done this week 9/15 edition

Oil changed in the dually & the car.
Started removing the logo/lettering from the new Taylor spark plug wires for the dually. That lettering is bonded on there pretty good so it's taking more time to make it disappear than I had hoped. Getting all that swapped this week ASAP so I can start some under-hood clean-up for C10's in the Park next weekend.

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...

Well... went to the C10 intervention.
On the way up the radiator thought it would identify as a sprinkler.
Found a radiator shop in merced. Thought we could pinch a tube off or two and continue on. Nope of course not a 4row available anywhere. So we got a kinda fits 2 row. 88-98 radiator I'd suspect $100 later and a sweet zip tie tranny cooler mount. My son and I had a great time

How was your weekend?

Replaced the factory gauges with mechanical oil and water gauges, volt and tach. Also replaced the Speedo cable. Now if I could only get the fuel gauge working.
