I made the oil pickup tube, mounted the oil pan for clearance testing. And, in turn found where I need to mount my bump stops. That's next, then I need to turn down the ends of the driveline yokes a skosch so I can make the rear driveline.

cheers

I turned down the rear driveline yoke last night. Ground the V6 calipers so my re-centered HMMV rims fit , I need to order wheel studs this weekend.

umm, what else. My goal this weekend is to move the fuel tank to the bed, get the electrical box finished up and start working on a mount for it.

I am gonna buy some mechanical gauges on the way home tonight, so at least get those in a mounting situation.

yeah, coming along.

Also I will tack in the bump stop stuff, start looking at the interior trans tunnel again. I think I would rather build a frame for it off of the existing interior cage.

cheers

Umm, made a battery box and mounted it.

Mounted the fuel tank in the bed.

Wired and mounted the plug for the electrical box( there will be two, but this is just main systems)

Turned down the yokes for the rear driveline, cut some material, and did a test fit. half assed tacked it to see what it would look like.

Got the doghouse supports welded in place.

Smiley has a new home. Luckily it's a good home and not parted out or at the salvage yard.

 

To you, or someone else?

Also I was expecting to read an Update from Monstaru... I hope he is alright.

 

Maybe someone can suggest to the new owner of this awesome project,

 

to keep this thread updated, if any progress occurs.

 

Kind Regards.

The new owner has already posted in this thread and I'm sure he'll keep the updates coming.  I just need to help him through the mountain of other projects that are in line in front of it. ;)
