Re: pdx-sanity66

I haven't posted for a while but I have made quite a bit if progress. The drive train is done except exhaust and new wheels/tires.
The engine compartment is done except mounting the radiator overflow and the horn.
All the wiring is done except front and rear lights and plugging the gauge cluster in. It's an AAW kit so the dash wiring is just plug and play at this point.
I finished installing the Lokar shift linkage and shifter.
I finished installing the brake booster and master and bled the brakes, so they are done. And I hooked up the parking brake system.
I'm finally taking Sanity in for new exhaust next week. Once that is done I'll be in the debugging stage of the build.
I've started looking at the body work that I need to do and the doors will be next.
I've started patching both fenders and cleaning up the grill surround but I haven't touched the hood or bed, yet.
And I just got my NOS aluminum grill that I bought from Perro13 here on the site. It's beautiful and I'm very happy with it.
I've got a couple of pics including Sanity down on tires again.

Re: pdx-sanity66

Looks great! I was wondering if that was the grille from Perro. It's going to look great on there! I really like your shifter too...mind telling me the length and bend or which Lokar that is?

Hi Clem, I hope everything is going good for you. Thanks, Sanity is looking more complete every day and I'm really pushing to get her drivable.

Re: pdx-sanity66

More progress on Sanity. The mechanicals are pretty much done. I need to do a couple more things on the dash, install the seats, and finish the door hardware when the body work on the doors is done. The drive train is done except the exhaust which I will be getting finished this week. The brake system is done including the parking brake
I'm. shifting gears right now and getting back to the small amount of body work left to do. I have the patch done on the drivers side fender and I'm almost done with patching the pass. side fender. The grill support has been media blasted and epoxy primed on the back side and I removed the grill mount/headlight brackets from my old grill, bead blasted them, and they are ready for epoxy. I bought 2 new bed sides which I wrote a review on in the general section. I already have the front bed side and the rear cross piece. I also have the front and rear bumper to prep and install. The doors have nothing done yet.
I am also shopping for wheels and tires.

Re: pdx-sanity66

Wow, I didn't realize that it's been so long since I have posted. We took a 3 month summer vacation north to Oregon to visit family.
Update: both front fenders are patched, I have finished patching the couple of spots on the roof seams and drip rail that needed finishing and I finished removing the old seam sealer around the drip rail, the exhaust is done with Magnaflow mufflers, and I painted the grill brackets and the back and front area on the grill support.
I am now getting ready to do some more media blasting on the backs of the front fenders, back of the cowl extensions, the front and rear bumpers, and the cross strips for the bed, and a few other small parts. I am also getting the roof prepped and ready to paint (white) so I can install the windshield and rear glass.
I'll get some pix up soon.

Re: pdx-sanity66

I've been following your build. Great work. I'm working on a drivetrain swap for my 65 and am gathering more parts while it's at the paint shop. What Lokar shifter did you go with? And how did you figure out where to cut the hole? Any gear indicator?

Thanks for looking in. The shifter is the Lokar Nostalgia 23" model hooked to a 700r4 trans.

How far above the seat does the shifter sit? I've been looking at the 16" but no idea yet if it will work...I put my engine and trans in next weekend.
