Re: 83/84 swb stepside long time build

Got the AC installed inside the cab. Had to reroute all the inside lines to clear tubz and minimize stuff on firewall. Going to make a little false firewall in front the hoses to hide them.

Re: 83/84 swb stepside long time build

Got the pedals in for the most part. The brake pedal is done. Had to get a bushing made and mad a bracket for the brake switch. Still working on throttle. Have the cable. Just bought new gaskets for the water pump, intake and headers today. Still trying to decide if I want to replace intake now or leave it for abit.
