Note to self, remove the hood, and transmission and take another stab at it. I had it in and close but to get the right angle I had the chain to far forward and ran out of length and then out of daylight! The worst part was getting this back in the garage. My ken-tool giant tire iron assisted it back over the humps. Almost a two man job! Room wise I was looking good. Maybe another day.

Almost like Novak has done a few of these. Looks like it will be dead on where the bolt is on the shock mount and my radiator should fit perfect. Pan even clears the pinion brake.I do plan on putting a F body *oil pan on it which will free up 4 inches also. I bought this cart specifically for installing transmissions and transfer cases and it works like a champ.Funny thing is, I may be able to flip the old cross member*and the trans holes may be right on top of it. Drill, add rubber and bolt away. Crossing my fingers on that one.

Ever have something figured out in your mind that is just not really going to pan out exactly how you planned it. I thought I ordered a floor mount cable Lokar. Apparently, I did not. The JB triple stick I can't decide if I want in the floor or all that sexy aluminum on top. I did buy the flush mount set up but need 4 inches underneath which I think I have six or so. I think if I bury the JB in the square, set the handles up with a tad of lean back, and drop the tranny shifter directly behind it I will be good. Might be a tad long but it will work. May just end up swapping the Lokar shifter to cable and putting the Lokar by the dash and the triple stick right behind it, like originally planned I think. The good news is I did get enough cable to move those JB's around a little.

Also, can you guys see my pics. I know I paid like a dollar to lose the advertisements a year ago, and it was for life. Just wondering if maybe I got lucky on the PB rip off. Or maybe I can just see them.

I can still see them. My photobucket is still working as it always has.

A little body work and paint. The more I was sanding the more I thought, this is not a show car, I bet they barely washed the dirt off before they painted them sometimes.

Shorter shifter=mo better. Dual mount optima box, bronco tank which fits......sorta! New LS radiator and I believe a tru cool 40k will drop right in front of it. Going to probably use led lights for blinkers and put a oil cooler behind one side and let the tru cool dip into the other side. I got a nice spray in bed liner kit for the bed floor and interior. This 100 percent humidity is stalling progress. Oh and my mom who is the sewing queen is stitching my top with nylon thread. It was new, just sat in the box for years and the thread got old. I refuse to mount my pretty seats until rain is not pouring in on them.

Yes. Well yes I bought a spray in bed liner for both. I am going to do some front floor pan work, then paint the center hump and doors tan, then bed line in the seat channels.

No, he had dumped a bunch of money into that one and then decided to do something else. I tried to buy his tailgate but he wants me to buy the bed also. Like he wants 3k for a gas tank he had built and fuel pump set up. I might be into the Bronco tank for 700.00 when all said and done and have twice the capacity and more clearance.

It looked different in my mind. I was hoping the brown was going to be*a little*lighter but it's growing on me.*

Thanks. Got the LS burned in today, the 4L80e and 203/205 swinging under there. Got to order some square tube mounts that shoulddddd clear the front shaft. Glad I ordered 5 foot cables on the shifters and who would have thought I think the LS PS hose is going to bolt into the damn hydroboost system. Al is a better welder than me but he had never tried welding a nut to a broken exhaust stud. Came out like butter! We were both impressed.

Much better.
