Posted 07 September 2010 - 07:30 PM

Been out for abit doing work on the 1968 520. Here's it now as it sits being peiced together with some nice goodies. So far it's a roller now, getting the brake lines ran to the disc at all four corners, I have a proportioning valve mounted under the dash with my pedals. And have alot of parts that are being made for it. Still have aways to go but my deadline is the same time as my last build somewhere in Oct. it will be running.

Love it dude! You're doing a great job with that truck

...seems to me we are being held hostage by these candy-ass pussy, limp wrist, hanky twisting, girly-man, cry when Forrest Gump's mom died, crystal gazing, Om chanting, sandal wearing, whiny voiced, oh I broke a nail, fucks.

The Tri 4-link is just what it is with QA1's at all four corners. I set the 4-link so its not all gay lookin slammed to the ground I like to drive my truck and be able to clear speed bumps and pull in a driveway so there will be plenty of room. But that's pretty much it when I'm done I will do a full report on it just not now too busy!

Got the under of my bed ready to be coated, and then it can be put back on. Also salvaged my old grill and going to mount it the same way as my First 520. Started the body work for the old side markers now that I mounted my new LED's turn signals. Dash is primed and ready for it's new set-up,Thinking of doing a Digital set-up with 6 gauges all in one and FAST wideband and a Boost gauge,but still thinking! Need one more wire and my fuse panel and the wiring is Done and ready to turn.
