Yes sir! I'm more than 50% positive the light in the tunnel is the end and not a train ;)

Laid some FatMat
Image

Got the KC panels installed with new clips from napa
Image

Image

Image

Finished all the wiring, plumbing, and final detail in the engine bay!
Image

Ready for a test fire tomorrow (seeing as it's 3am and the trucks currently open header)

Prepped, primed, and painted the underside of the hood
Image

Image

Image

And for the first time in months the truck is outside and looking like a truck again
Image

Fingers crossed that it will fire up and only need a dizzy adjustment

I hate moving so very very much.....

But I've made progress :)

From this:

To this!!!

Finally -.-



And since the wiring gremlin seems to be out of control and beyond me I've enlisted the help of the Dr :) and to make everything easier I blew up a wiring diagram from my FSM to the size of my kitchen table :D

Hopefully we can get the truck sorted out now

Fingers crossed :/

Added some much neeeded lights and signals!!

The actual light will attach to the car via magnets

Was starting to wonder if you quit Datsuns altogether.

They are never done yo ;)

But I just wrapped up everything needed on my dads 67 mustang, next up is my folks 2011 Hylander. It needs some basic TLC/maintenance items, then this truck will be up next ;)

I swear one day I'll get caught up.....

True, I'll just be happy to be back to Datsuns!

With that said my dad's Mustang came out freaking great when I was done with it.
Electric fan
New rad
Fan conctroller
Tons of wiring redone
Motor torn all the way back to the timing set(on an A/C & power steering car)
Lots of new gaskets
Carb rebuild and retune
New chrome valve covers and a valve adjustment
And what ever else I'm forgetting

But in the end I won! I always do ;)
