Re: Project: Rufus Restoration

Spent a little time in the garage over the weekend and managed to get the rear brakes installed. Still need to finish running my lines on the rearend, and from the master cylinder down to the crossmember. My dad also got the floor cut out, and the high hump installed this past week. Radiator/fan/shroud combo should be on the big brown truck today for near future installation. Next on the to do list: finish brake lines, clean up engine wiring, install fuse box and chassis wiring, install radiator, pick up a battery, and it should likely move around on its own power!

Thanks! It may not cool at all, but it's at least awful pretty to look at. Were you able to get your oil pressure figured out?

Re: Project: Rufus Restoration

No new updates yet, but I should have several boxes coming in very soon, and hopefully make some more small steps to getting back on the road. More than anything, I just need to dive head first into this wiring and get a move on. Summer is going to be here before we know it.

Sounds like you have plenty to keep you busy. I still need to swing by and check out your dually build one day if I can catch you in your shop.

Thank you! My dad has been itching to get some color on this heap for months now. He runs a body shop, so staring at primer for a couple yrs has been killing him. Hopefully within the next couple of months, she'll be all shiny!

I have a large shipment of goodies that I'm expecting by the end of the week, so some major progress should be accomplished this coming weekend. Pictures coming soon!!!

Re: Project: Rufus Restoration

So I ventured north to KY this weekend to spend a little shop time with my dad. Along the way, I stopped by So. Ky. Classics in Bowling Green and picked up one of their complete fleetside bed kits. Man, it's amazing how much a bed actually makes an old heap look like a truck! We were able to get that assembled and set on the rails, but didn't bolt things down, as it'll need to come right back off to prep the underside, etc. I also received my new driveshaft from Denny's Driveshaft and got that bolted in. Picked up a few other parts, hidden hitch, lowered sway bar mounts, miscellanous interior parts, miscellaneous e-brake parts, some Damplifier Pro from Secondskin, and a couple other things I'm sure I'm forgetting about. Enough of the rambling. You only want to see pictures anyway.
