Then I hung the replacement sheet metal I either been saving or scrounged. The hood is neccesary, but I gotta say UP22 sux. I done a ton of work to get it to fit, and I still ain't happy...

Currently working on the bed mods for the access panels for the cell and battery. I work a LOT, but I plan on finishing the bed mods and getting it ready for primer by the end of this week, and hopefully painting the interior. I got the body about one blocking away from being ready for paint, minus the crappy hood...

Just ordered a gauge panel I want to try to mod to fit, still need a shifter (I got the controller) and need to mod the 8.8 to fit, and a driveshaft for it needs to be made. Most of the work was done Thanksgiving week, and some around Christmas, the rest has been an hour or two as I had time, or nothing else in my way (Like my D21 or the never ending GTO project) I HATE that car... lol...

Like the project but I must say since you bought it May of 2015, can I borrow your time machine to get a lottery ticket. I only need it for about an hour, probably won't even notice its gone.

I believe this is one of the smaller trucks ever built, should be fun with the V8.

I fixed the fat fingering...

And I have had a good many, LUVs, S10's, Nissan's, etc. for some reason I gravitate towards the smallish trucks with a V8...

I got the bed modded for the access doors, and some of the holes welded up, or patches roughed in. I got a reschedule with the Hydro blast guy due to the weather. Once that is done I can finish the spots I know will appear...
