    Thanks, Rich. I finished up the gauges today; I converted the fuel gauge over to a 0-90 ohm GM gauge, used the stock oil psi gauge and decided to use to aftermarket gauges for temp and volts. I'm putting them where the original radio was and put block off plates where the sat on the factory cluster. Also got some of the dash put together. My drive shaft is in and I did move it forward and back a few feet but I'm waiting on my buddy to finish up some touch up on the deck lid before I try to test drive it.

    Doesn't look much different but I spent several hours and finished up 99% of the under dash wiring and added a tach. Laying on the floor working overhead was a back breaker; glad to have this part wrapped up.

    ".... Laying on the floor working overhead was a back breaker....."

    I hear you, biggest problem I seem to have is getting up and out once I'm done!!!!

    Looks good by the way.

    Got the decklid repainted this week; it had a few bad spots that we figured it was easier just to reshoot it. Should be ordering and installing a windshield soon and begin polishing all the stainless and putting it back on the car.

    Lots of little stuff done; got the decklid back on, transmission TV cable hooked up, tracked down a parasitic battery drain and did some work on the wipers. Should be ordering a windshield next week and start getting the glass put back in soon. Then its time to start polishing a ton of stainless trim and getting it back on along with wheels and tires in there somewhere.

    Hey all,

    It's been a while since I've checked in. Haven't done much car stuff for a while; I went back to my old job and was tied up with the transition for a while. Also sold my 49. My wife has gone through so much with her cancer the last couple of years and she always wanted a nice master bathroom with a walk in shower so i sold the car and built her one. I needed to thin the herd anyway; too many projects. So I'm back on the 48; just had the front and rear windshield put in, bought some Jegs brand torque thrust wheels and tires and found this cool old Mopar dual snorkel air cleaner. Glad to be working on metal again instead of concrete, drywall, and tile.

    Glad to see you back, and kudos for focusing on the MBR Bath w/walk in shower for your wife. Focusing on the little things in life that mean a lot to others is a good thing.

    The '48 is looking good!

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

    Very nice job. Like the way you have taken time to think things out of where things go. Know what you're talking about when it comes to time involvement, got 7 years in mine but it's done and you will be there in no time.

    Sorry to see the 49 go, but totally understand the reason.

    Good to see the 48 back on the front burner. Nice score on the air cleaner. I used to grab every dual snorkel air cleaner I could find and had a shelf full for a while......they all went away when I found out what they were going for.

    Nice to see you back! I'm betting the new bathroom makes your life a lot easier in more than one way! It's nice to see you working on the white one. It is looking great!

    Yeah, that big walk in shower is great for us old fat dudes. Lots of room to turn around!
