Re: "The Bucket" project diary

Lots of work the past few weekends...steering column rebuilt & put back in truck, hydroboost lines & steering box back in, finished wiring everything, exhaust completed, radiator/trans cooler & hoses installed, repairs to battery box, several little vacuum & vent know all that stuff that has to be done, and seems to take forever with little progress.
So Saturday we were able to finally crank it!
This initially battery hook-up & run always makes me so nervous, but it all went GREAT!
Still don't have rear driveshaft back from being shortened...the machine shop has messed it up twice, so maybe the third time it'll be right.
Fan spacer is supposed to be here today from Summitt & then have to finish some fab work on shroud.
Reinstall passenger fender & grill stuff...then we'll be cruising again.
I'm getting excited now!!!
