Re: Mike's 50

Well Progress has been slow. Got some parts in the last week or so, new No Limit Fuel tank, will try and get Aeromotive fuel pump installed and maybe get the tank mounted, got a Red Oak bed kit from Mar K along with stainless steel strips and angle strips. Ordered Ididit Coulmn but will not have till the middle of December, sucks but what can I do now.
Also got my new driveshaft from Denny's driveshft, nice piece and not a bad price, and great company to deal with.
Also my Dad is going to be bringing down my cab and front sheet metal so I can start working with that stuff atleast.

Think after I get tank and pump mounted I can get fuel lines run.
Been busy with the shop and paying customers plus daughter's cars.

A couple of pictures attached and will post another after I get the cab on.

Re: Mike's 50

worked on mounting the fuel tank also played around with Column and seat.

The column is an Ididit Brushed aluminum tilt Column.

The seats (if I use them) are out of a 2011 Volvo S60 I scrapped last year. They are power and hope to hook that up. Removed the headrests as they have the Monitors for rear seat Entertainment system.

Re: Mike's 50

Spent sometime at the shop this weekend got a little bit mocked up slow progress. got the doors fitted, need adjustment.

Got the Altman latch kits installed, started mock up of fuel lines.

Running -6 Summit hose and Fittings. Plan on using a Corvette Fuel filter with built in Regulator. May change that up later.

Also installed a Street and Performance Swivel Thermostat Housing, Nice piece and will make attachment to Radiator easy.

Also test fit of the Dakota Digital VHX Carbon/Blue Gauges, polished original Speaker Cover, Glove Box door.

Re: Mike's 50

Solidaxel, I haven't looked recently at front drive, you have any suggestions?

I also have ordered up a set of Absolute Sheet metal Floor board kit and it should be here Monday.
