Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

I make a plan for it every year, last year I got the drop spindles and springs (that I stupidly sold the drop spindles then had to buy another pair) and the year before I got bupkis. in fact last year and this year were the best its been, good weather, good turnout, verifiable deals. I am a lifer now.

wired the VA setup and got all the wiring tucked and tied up, the pcm found a secure home behind the VA system, so thats done. extended the clutch safety switch wires (when I started it last month I just jumped it, so I guess not-so-safety) and the brake switch wires.

lets be brutally honest, after getting cold decked by this thing for 7 months I was due for a good deal. well I got it. I was planning to remount the steppers in the factory cluster, I have done it before and its a great look but a giant amount of work and sometimes they dont survive the heat and harshness of a truck interior. but for giggles I thought I would see what the s10 cluster would look like in the 41 hole.

well I'll be dipped. just a little trimming and it will even bolt in.

the sun does shine on a dogs butt once in a while. it will need just two small trim pieces but woop de doo, I can do that when I build the glovebox from kydex.

more tomorrow! I beat the rain with mowing tonight so I can work in the cool morning on finishing up the interior stuff and move to the bed wood.

Joe

That's one "nasty gash" in the dash.
Gota love it when one goes your way, strong work.

I was just wondering, if in the future you were to build a tk to keep for a while, what might that be?

Keep on keepin on

Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

well the last 41 was supposed to be my keeper. lately I cant wait to start the next one though. the 49 gmc that is on deck was at one point going to be mine too, but I am alrady thinking down the line.

I think a nice 55-57 big window on a I-dont-care-what-anyone-thinks chassis swap would be something I would keep. maybe like a toyota tacoma chassis with the 2.7l inline 4.

I see signs all over that I should build one, like that bed at the swap meet this weekend, and I found a 56 big window cab that the guy just flat stopped answering his phone about.
