    This vehicle is just so cool. It's the epitome of what rodding is all about. Necessity is the mother of invention. Can't wait to see it done. Hope the cooling system works as well as the design.

    Am not currently planning on a side scoop, but can always add one if necessary

    Fans & louvers should work great, I would thing, but as you say adding a scoop to force flow some air while moving is always an option. Good plan. to me.

    As I plan to tow with the truck and given that the transbrake will produce extra heat, I have installed two transmission coolers in series. The first is a heatsink and the second is a fan cooled unit (with thermo switch).





    Have also made good progress on the exhaust. The photo is a bit deceiving. There is a plenty of clearance between the mufflers and gas tank.

    Thanks! Here is the latest progress. Made a fan shroud out of some left over stainless steel flashing.

    It's looking great! The exhaust looks cool, and the shroud turned out nice as well.

    Thanks for all the encouragement!

    Finished relocating the seat mounts to maximize leg room.



    Also making good progress on the dash mounted shifter.



    I am repurposing the radio opening to locate the shifter. By doing so, I avoid cutting up the only nice sheet metal on the truck!

    Clever. How is the clearance from the window to the shifter? No knuckle cracking?

    The clearance to the glass is fine, but you bring up a good point. This will have safari windows as does my electric bus. I need to open the windows to all different degrees and make sure that there in no interference with the locking sliders on the windshields.
