    Progress on the Single Cab.

    Radiator is back in and filled
    Engine is primed with oil
    Carb is installed
    Fuel filler neck is in with plumbing for a sealed tank and vapor canister
    Started making a wiring harness - most of the rear lighting is done

    Wiring, wiring and more wiring! It is slow tedious work, but making good progress. I am using some diy plug connections and wire looming.

    Thanks, I appreciate the kind words and encouragement! Still chipping away at the wiring. I am routing everything in the cab and mounting switches but nothing picture worthy yet.

    There is one thing for sure, ANYBODY who has watch this beast being built will have no doubt who the owner is if they happen to run across it at a car/truck show or on the street. It's definitely one of a kind....joe
