    I'm following this intently, I'm curious to see how your converted power rack will work with a manual steering and how everything will line up.I don't even have the block pulled out of mine yet, so all options are on the table yet LOL

    I did the manual rack conversion over the weekend; only took a couple of hours and I used the You Tube link I posted for guidance. Im curious to see how it steers, too. Im hoping to have it rolling and the column mounted over the next weekend.

    That old Dodge sedan didn't go fast, but it never left us stranded.

    I got the front end finished up this evening; looks like a clear path to the rack connection for the steering shaft hookup. Should be doing steering column and start figuring out the pedals this weekend.

    Got my steering column and pedals mocked up. The old column was missing several parts and had an add on blinker switch. This one came from an early 60s Dodge truck. Just had to swap the shaft so the steering wheel splines would match. For pedals I modified a set of Fiero pedals and used a Wilwood clutch master and a big bore Mopar brake master. Iíll probably start on wiring next before I start putting the front clip back together. I saved the whole wiring harnesses from the Dakota; Iím just going to modify it and use it.

    Iím not going to paint this but I am going to address a few spots where itís rusted through. I found a core support and another passenger door that will help fix the serious cancer.

    Started getting the front clip back together. I got this grill off the other truck; itís a 1959 but itís in better shape and I like the look. Iíve got a little rust repair on the driverís fender and the passenger door but the rest is going on as is.
