I did some more work to the truck but still haven't finished all the things on the to do list. Here are the things I did manage to get done.

Replaced head light housings with more stock appearing ones
Installed the carbon fiber grill emblem I did a few years back
Moved battery cables and modified the battery hold downs
Installed the filler panels in between the grill and rad support
Started installing my boyd fuel tank. That still isn't done
Re painted the bottom side of the truck to get winter's curse off it
Put some old Longhorn badges on it for now
Painted around the headlights on the grill until I decide what I'm doing for a grill
Installed my front drive shaft and 1350 yoke on the D60 finally

This year I successfully drove the truck to Goodguys. I was impressed it never got over 195* the entire weekend. It took 1 hour to make a round around the show on Saturday afternoon. I wish it had AC finished then. I think I had the 2 only vehicles there that would idle too. Stupid gassers revving their stuff to keep them running any way. LMAO!

These were the only pics I took all weekend. The rear suspension is dumped here making it easier for peeps to get in the bed.

I like the filler panels! Is it just the pictures or is there something going on with your paint?

The bed isn't painted yet and the passenger side door is a shade darker than everything else. Part of the color distortion could just be from my phone. The underside of the hood isn't discolored as that pic shows.

Yeah, it was a madhouse. I couldn't believe the traffic to get into the grounds. We got there a little after 10AM and traffic was backed up to the west end of Pleasant Hill. Then there was a long line at the ticket gate. It was amazing how many vehicles were there. Every year they keep getting farther and farther to the east end.

I should've went. I wasn't sure about the Olds engine. I drove it about 35 miles yesterday. Ran fine. I heard it was crazy busy at Goodguys. Maybe next year.

Re: 1972 Chevy 4wd Longhorn Project: Never Ending Changes

Last Friday night after work I loaded the boys up and took them to Oskaloosa. We stayed in my brother's camper and Saturday morning we took the truck to the Rollin Oldie's Car and Truck Show. They had 214 cars and trucks. My brother took my Vette. Neither of us won anything. No surprise because there were a lot of nice rides there. This show is pretty nice though. They give out root beer floats before they do the awards presentation. After the show the boys got to ride in a Peterbilt tow truck and then it was on to home. They both passed out about 5 miles into the trip home.

I did manage to get my fog lights put on and hooked up last week. I also finally hooked my dome lamp up to a toggle switch until I get around to installing the door switches. I installed my back up lamps in the back bumper but still have to wire them up. I don't know if anyone will notice but these are the new head light housings I put in earlier this month. They don't have a defuser in them and are glass and look more period correct. I also finally put on the modified grill emblem. Slowly but surely.
