    Nice knobs you made! Have you checked out tanks inc for a fuel pump? Most drop in fuel pumps I've found for retrofit do not have the sending unit built in like a newer efi vehicle. When I had the Fitech for my 40, I used a stock replacement pick up tube and took my fuel sending unit and added the pick up tube to it. I then added a walbro 250 to the bottom and used a holley hydramat at the inlet of the pump. It was a fiasco to put it all through the small sender hole. I think that's part of why most have them seperate.

    Yup I've been looking at the Tanks Inc. stuff, it looks like thats what I need. I may try to add another hole for a pump in my existing tank to save some bucks. Just not looking forward to removing the bed to get it done, however it does give something to do . lol
    Have a Great weekend !

    I had this hole in the overhead of my truck with a plan of putting a backup camera in it. I finally got around to doing just that. It turns on with a switch that's under the dash.

    finished

    Looks nice with the walnut trim panel! I need to invest in a pair of those to help keep me from backing into ditches, or worse!

    Your use of "overhead" brought a smile and took me back to my Navy Air days.

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    I've been retired from the USN for 26 years and still use all the terms, nobody knows what I'm saying but that's ok. Someday I'll return to civilian ways of talking lol.

    Very nice work on that back up camera. Did you mount it on the bed sill under the tail gate? I've been toying with the idea of putting a license plate frame camera on my 40 but also thought about trying to hide it under and below the license plate to try and hide it.

    Here's the camera mount 1st pic is a proto type that I made and it stinks, ugly and just rotten work on my part, it also had too much bumper in the pic.

    2nd pic is new mount before polishing

    3rd is polished , I also am thinking painting it black so it disappears on the truck so to speak.

    4th is close up of the camera and mount.

    5th pic is from 4 feet away.


    Camera sees the ground about 1 foot behind the bumper and up to the sky. It covers a blind spot on the drivers side.

    Nice work on your mount. Yeah, if you paint it black to match the bumper bracket, the camera will definitely blend in and be hidden pretty well.

    mount painted black


    I used a wireless system 2.4 ghz for the camera setup. I already had a hot wire in place for the power but the reverse light or running lights hot wire would work too. The whole system was under a $110.00. Hope it last.

    I feel like I'm beating a dead horse with this project because it's been done for some time now, but I thought I'd share this video for NSRA Louisville early Aug.

    Nice video, enjoyed that. What a beautiful truck, that paint is so rich. Like the wheels and stance too.

    You're not beating a dead horse at all! Your truck is beautiful and you did an amazing job on it. They did a great job show casing your truck. I sure don't mind watching it and absorbing all it's glory. Thanks for your service as well!
