I didn't have a black screw long enough for that spot so I'm going to replace all the black screws with regular ones. I'm really happy with the way it turned out and I'm another step closer to being done with this pile. I wanted to install an Autometer speedometer and in dash tach but the funds weren't there this time.

A little update here I finished the front and even have a grill in it now. Other than hooking up the tail lights all the wiring is complete and tested and I only ended up with one shorted wire to the rock lights and one indicator light that didn't work. The computer powered up and sent a signal to the fuel pump and the throttle body actuates and it didn't throw any fault codes so it should be ready to fire. I'm going to try and complete the cage this weekend and get the interior back in it before I get the trans back on the 7th.

For those of you that like making lists for what needs to be done I thought I'd show you mine.

Start

***Replace everything but the steering wheel***

Finish

I was thinking of removing my radiator cap and driving a new rig under the cap and reinstalling the cap. It seems easier! Your rig is looking good man! :headbang:

Yes I got the case changed Sunday, also got the trans plummed, exhaust done, front drive shaft in, skid plate ready to install and even turned the engine over. Rear spring perches are welded in and started working on notching the frame to make room for the rear shocks. Tonight I started making some radiator hoses and got the steam ports plummed to the radiator. I still need to figure out what I should do to fix the rear drive shaft.

A little update, it's mostly done just working on some small details. Interior is in and I've been driving it around quite a bit today and I'm really impressed with how much power it has and how quick it responds. It's going to take a bit to get used to since its never had that much power and the trans is a lot different to with the reverse valve body and engine braking.

A small update here. Got some new tires and beadlock kits for the rig. I have 3 tires mounted and I still have one wheel to finish and two more tires to mount.

 
I put gorilla tape on the inner bead and siliconed both beads as well. I don't think I'll have anymore bead problems.


The end result, they'll never look this nice again.
