Re: Arizona Steel 46

Well that is what the guy told me!
Yes one of them had a heat shield.
We removed it and ground off the attachments and had them coated
Old Yelr may have something

KW is where my family is from, 4 generations, I have been down South West for the past 65 years, don't get back much anymore so I guess this is home for me
We don't shovel sunshine and the cars don't rust, and it is a dry heat in June!

Looks good! Final assembly is really rewarding....and often a bit stressful, at least for me.

Well lets see if I can find where all the wires go!
He says he wants to drive it for his birthday on Sept 11
He may be able to drive it out of the shop but it will still need more work

Cool idea. What actuator is that? Gotta be way less money than the electric parking brake that is on the market now.

Truck looks great.

Hey the build looks great.
Would you be able to post any photos of how you mounted the seat?

Re: Arizona Steel 46

I do not have a pic of the hinge but it was a simple hard ware store door hinge welded to the seat frame and the bolted to the front of the existing seat riser.
his would let you fold the back part and then raise the seat forward to access the cavity under the seat.
The seat was from a Dodge Caravan third seat
