well I almost gave up on this thing a few weeks ago, I had a chance to pick up a datsun 521, which is the dream truck, however it was kind of a shady deal and I backed out. However that got me right back into working on this thing with my mind straight and money in my pocket we started getting back on it.
2 weeks ago it looked like this
and when I got to my buddies place this weekend here is how it sat
He had been busy, the fire wall has been redone, he started working on a hydroboost brake set up off of an astro van, built a full custom exhaust (I'll see if I can find more pics of that later on) re did the cross member and trans mount, just all around busy.
This weekend we did a lot, got the new shifter installed (no pics of that either) the trans is hooked up and working all vac lines are hooked up, worked on the hydroboost some more, ran all the fuel lines to the tank, and needles to say it moves under its own power now, we just don,t have any brakes at the moment.
sitting outside after we drove it out for the first time.
and we had a little bit of fun
and a video just for the hell of it
I have a show in two weeks in memory of a fallen mini trucker and good friend, and then camp and drag is in what 4 weeks now? Any way Ill have it at the show in two weeks and aim to have it driving for camp and drag!
