One of the previous owners felt the need to label everything on the dash. I haven't been able to pull them all off since its a part of its character.

Re: Ratchet's Blazer - 1970 2wd with Original paint

Just realized that I hadn't put any pictures on here for a while.

I've gotten the Captainfab brackets and hydroboost mounted up. The brackets do a good job of hiding the mess on the firewall from old leaking master cylinders. I tried putting a vacuum booster to save myself some time of having to deal with power steering hoses, but was having issues with connecting the brake pedal to the booster, so I switched back to the hydroboost. I have some factory style lines for an 86 3/4 Ton for the hydroboost, but it turns out that they hit the proportioning valve. I ordered some PTFE AN hoses and ends this week and they should be in by Friday when I get home from TX, so HOPEFULLY, I can finally finish the brakes this weekend!

The other 2 pics are of my surprise visitor that was on the handle of the flaring tool that I grabbed before I noticed him! This was not long after I had a Brown Recluse crawl in between my legs, and after I tested the surface tension of the skin on my finger with a hacksaw blade... Hopefully, I'll get it together AND still be alive by the time HRPT gets here!

Holy snakes Batman! What kind is that? Had one in my shop a couple years ago acting if he owned the place. A bit startling.

No clue, I wasn't able to find anything quite like it on the internet. Probably a little rat snake of some kind. I do know that I didn't like him and he didn't like me!
