    My wife picked the wheels; those Torque Thrust design look really good on just about any car.

    I used Harbor freight's brand of polishing compounds; the gray stick on the heavy cloth wheel and the green stick on the soft wheel.

    I've been working on doors the last few weeks; got my window fuzzies and channel put in, power window mechanisms put it and all the associated wiring tidied up, speaker wires ran, dome and courtesy lights wired; plus several other door related misc items finished. We just got some upholstery samples in the mail so we'll be ordering a headliner and stuff to make seat covers and door panels soon. I've got a four day weekend so hopefully lots will get accomplished over the next few days.

    Thanks falcon for the feed back as I get the truck together, I'm looking towards the day when stainless polishing will be necessary

    That's looking real nice. Are you lucky enough to miss the stuff moving through Kansas and Missouri this weekend?

    I just checked the weather radar and it looks like it going right through his area. We got a couple of inches and light ice build up on the trees, hopefully he doesn't get anything worse. Be safe out there.

    It's getting pretty dicey here; been freezing rain all day. Hopefully the power stays on.

    It's passed through here for the most part, hope it doesn't hit you any harder than it hit us.

    We had a night of freezing rain, but it was minimal, caused no trouble.

    More wiring done; console and sound system wires lined out along with other misc wiring. Built some rear speaker mounts that go where the rear window regulators used to be. I put in new tack strip for the windlace and new grommets for the headliner bows. Also got the front seats stripped to get recovered; should have my rear seat springs back from the sandblaster/powdercoat guy this week. I took a box of plastic body plugs and went around plugging several factory holes in the floorpan. Also bought two sheets of masonite and started working on door panels. One more day off tomorrow, we'll see how far we get.

    Looking real nice, if your like me, that light at the end of the tunnel approaches very slowly. Is that a Lokar direct trans mount shifter? Keep the photos coming with the door panels, I would like to see how you do that.

    Yeah, it is dragging for me. After darn near a decade of working on this on and off, I'm committed to dedicating every spare minute to this for the next few months and wrapping it up. Some of these little things really eat time up and make you feel like it wasn't much progress for a full day's work. That is a Lokar shifter; nicely built piece and worth the extra bux over a cheaper model.

    I wish I would have got a Lokar instead of my B&M Uni Shifter. It isn't bad but far from great.

    Got all my door panels cut out of masonite, trial fit, and trimmed today. Still some holes to cut for front speakers but they should work pretty good. My wife and I are going shopping for seat foam, then I'm hitting the recliner for the rest of the day.

    Nice work! Are you going to glue your material to the Masonite after you sew the material? Or can you sew through the Masonite with your machine? I'm curious. I've never done this but am going to on my 40. The purple interior has got to go.
