    Hey,check out the ears on that guy.. he can probably hear the electrons passing through the wires..



    JK, JK, JK, he looks like a guys best friend.

    When I bring our shepard into the garage to help she snags the rag from my back pocket and lays around tearing it apart. Or finds a stick and carries it in to chew it to bits and leaves the mess for me to clean up.

    I'll just leave her in the house!

    He does have great hearing! He does have his ways to relieve the boredom as well. He likes to collect acorns, get comfortable on a folded welding blanket and break them up. Thankfully he does not eat them.

    Got something done on several things today.

    Routed the negative battery cable in conduit under the cab, but ran out of clamps



    Stripped the original seat frames of what was left of seat covers. Went over everything with a wire wheel on an angle grinder and sprayed them with some rusty metal primer.



    Rough cut some sheet metal to fill in the inside of the rear fenders. Going to roll some beads into them and then weld in. This is the last of the welding that needs to be done before I can put gas in the tank.

    The wiring harness is done and installed.

    The steering wheel is finished up. I called the local upholstery shops, so far one returned call out of 3. My one response will wrap it in leather for $120. It is a lot of work, but not sure how good that price is. Waiting to hear from the other two. I removed the quick release hub, as it was way too sloppy. Also welded in a mounting plate to bolt on a spinner and avoid the typical lousy fit.



    Also finished up the rear sway bar install. I was having a bit of a clearance issue with the bar and the gas tank but solved it by modifying some factory sway bar link bolts. They have a very thin but wide head but had to machine off a large shoulder to fit my application.

    Original on the left, modified on the right.



    In place

    Reinstalled the steering wheel w/spinner.



    Tested the wiring harness. Couple of small glitches, nothing major.

    Finished up the inner fenders





    Working on completing the front sides of the fenders



    Cutting up and using another trailer fender



    Used the planishing hammer to round off the cut edge to match the rest of the fender









    Going to use some metal mesh to make some compartments in the corners of the bed which will be covered by the bed sides.

    Thanks!
    The passenger side is done also!





    Pocket behind the right rear wheel





    Welded on some Dzus fasteners for a removable cover over the charcoal canister behind the left rear wheel.



    Took the measurements for an Aluminum Treadplate bed floor. Going to the big city soon to pick it up. They have a huge shear so I can get the size I want and nice smooth lines.
