So time, money and health have all taken thier turns at putting my truck project on the back burner. I'm still buying parts needed for it, so when the time is right I'll have plenty to do.

Thanks Jim !

My back is doing much better now, but it sure did set me back for a bit, everything fell behind.

I did a few little things on the truck, installed seat belts, rebuilt my vent windows and installed a vapor canister & vent lines. But that's about it.

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

So it's been a while since any up-dates, it's small but it's progress !
Totally rebuilt my wing windows over this past winter and finally got one installed & the window regulator, rubber/ felt sweeps & glass. Also tried 3 different door gaskets trying to get something that would allow me to shut the doors without slamming them. ( Dodge Dakota push-on, new Precisions mitered push-ons, and soft seal glue-on ) New precision mitered push-on I can't use, I had to slam the door double handed to get them to close ! Dodge Dakota not bad ( and are on it now ). Soft Seal glue on worked great ( Taped on for trial ) If the Dakota ones break in a bit more I'll leave them on.

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

So here I am once again, home recuperating from surgery ( distal bicep tendon repair ) tore it off the bone. I'm about 4 weeks post surgery and getting board as heck !!! So I'm feeling a bit better, and have all these NOS parts I've been collecting, so what better way to spend some time than putting them on the truck !

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

was your truck setup for the aluminum trim around the tail lights or did you add it. I'm nervous about drilling holes in my truck after paint to install the trim.

No it wasn’t , the bedsides are new aftermarket and they don’t come predrilled. I gave the body shop the assembly manual and they drilled it. That way they had to do the worrying not me.... lol !

Nice ! Is that Todd's old blazer ?

I'm just getting back to work, was out for two and a half months recuperating from surgery on my arm. I tore the bicep tendon off of my forearm and they had to reattach it.

Yes

How the heck did you do that?

Happy to come by for a bit, if you have time?

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

Lifting a peace of pipe at work and it hit something, stopping it abruptly and putting all the force on my bicep muscle & tendon, tearing the tendon from the bone. They drilled a hole through the bone and screwed the tendon back into it.

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

I'll find out abut the alarms on Tuesday... LOL

I installed dome & cargo lights and wiring a couple weeks back. I also ordered the rear disc brake brackets from Captain Fab for the D52 calipers, I'll be installing the eldorado calipers with the e-brake. I have a set of his comaro brackets but don't like the e-brake cable setup. That;s about it for now !
