Make sure not to toss out the AC equipment. Its worth some money to you for when someone who wants to add the AC to their truck.

That new welder is perfect for body work. Much easier than stick! Nice progress too!

Default hood

the hood pull latch junked out.
tried to fiddle with it but no luck.
these were cheap and easy-ish.



however the rods were not long enough to simply bolt to the front bulkhead. so I welded in a spacer.

Exclamation

on order:

new U bolts
shackle bushings.
momentary "on" button for the new "horn"..
steering wheel
walboro 255
NGK plugs
belltech swaybar with all the parts

need to order electric power steering. but considering ordering the prius power electric steering column since I have a welder I feel like I can tackle anything now.
just need to buy a plasma cutter I can do anything myself....

need to finish the welding on these 2 motorcycles. get them sold then I can put more free $ into the truck such as a t56 transmission to run a motor with extra cylinders..

240sx short shifter

long grungy night.
removed intake to remove all the evap/emissions garbage.
cant get the intake bracket out from the bottom.
I assume don't need it anymore. il cut it out.

might as well replace all the gaskets too.
removed butterflies and jb welded shut.
cleaned everything with purple power in a bucket.




no wonder I had a vacuum leak, I didn't have this pluggd.


FILTHY

That bracket under intake is a support bracket. It is a pain to get to the bolts but I think it’s a good piece to have to support the intake.
