Thanks for the great input guys, the trans tunnel did take a long time to make. I tried to make it like the original trans cover, so it would be easy access to remove the trans. It ends up I miss measured and didn't account for the extra amount of room the clutch and pressure plate take up so to pull the trans I will have to pull the motor or body. Its not ideal but I'm not going to redo the floor and tunnel just for that.

I have been cleaning up and painting parts, trying to make a pile of shiny stuff. This may take a wile , seems like slow motion doing all the tedious cleaning for paint prep. Here is my small pile of finished parts.

It's keeping them shiny that's the hard bit in the UK with our crap weather.
Looking good though.

It is coming along, sure seems to be taking a good bit of time probably because I'm getting anxious to see it finished . Now I need to get the engine bay ,door jams, interior and around the windshield ready for some paint

Not too much progress lately , I did get the engine bay body work partially done. I resprayed the engine bay with primer to seal the filler and bare steel. Looks like it will need some more work to get it completely ready for paint

I've been following you're thread since it began and it's great what you're accomplishing and the thought put into it is top dollar. $$$$

I maybe a little biased, but great to see another Pick Up coming to life.
Makes my little Pick Up a Whimpering hound in comparison. :D

Keep it up and look forward to next installments.. :positive:
