Re: A real BadSeed

You aren't wasting your time. If you don't have any response, it doesn't mean no one is looking, it just means they aren't responding. Your post might help someone a year from now, or tomorrow. Even if it doesn't help someone while you're active on this site, you can always look at it like a journal of your build process. And even a way to keep the records of parts you've used or what exactly you did to the truck. Keep posting. Several people are watching.

Re: A real BadSeed

Ok. Thank you guys for responding. I'll keep going. Haha.
I came across the earliest picture I know of that was taken of the truck when my dad was driving it and working a ranch. The little girl in the picture is my 47 year old sister. And I was about 5 years from being born. Doing the math and a
little estimating, that primer was on a 7 year old truck. It's like it's never had a shine on it. Lol. #BadSeed #RanchoAelegria

Re: A real BadSeed

I designed some custom mounting feet for my A/C condensor to separate it from the radiator. There's a slight bend in the mounting feet. The core support is double walled where this mounts so I drilled through the first layer hiding the mounting screw inside the double wall. This will all be behind the radiator.
*The condensor that showed up in the mail was damaged, making it my mock-up condensor. That's why it looks bent in the pics. They sent a replacement and told me keep the junk.

Re: A real BadSeed

I found some billet mounting straps for a roll bar light mount. They worked great to hold my A/C drier canister

Re: A real BadSeed

I bought a small oil cooler with a 7" electric fan. I made a custom shroud for it. This this will most likely be located behind the cab, but it's still up in the air for now.

Re: A real BadSeed

I tapped the screw holes for these air-lift sensor mounts, installed my little 3H covers and found a home for the set up on the frame.

Re: A real BadSeed

I shortened the trans crossmember to be installed on the boxed in frame. I drilled holes and welded the nuts to the inside to create a captive-nut situation. All the crossmembers are installed with this method
