OK so knocking more things off the to-do list. Added a couple diagonal tubes to another 3rd removable clamp for under the spare so if the tire is flat there is more tubes for the rim to sit onto with the 3 point strap holding it down. Also made some tabs for the 3-point straps to hook onto as well. The Driver side tab had to be longer since that tube is bent to clear fuel cell fill plate so I added a piece of plate on top of it for the tire to rest onto instead of an edge of 3/16" plate.

OK so i got the Restomod Air Conditioning Evaporator mounted up in the cab AND i got half the bulkhead mounted to run the lines. Also once I got that mounted up I mocked up the seat and tested the gas pedal and such and I realized the gas pedal was in the wrong spot and too close to brake pedal so I made new gas pedal And I cut/moved the brake pedal over about 1.5". Everything clears and is super comfortable with my feet too which is necessary

Well I been working on this thing everyday but it's all the small more tedious things that look like you didn't get anything done. Tabs for the brake lines and such. Also I got a couple more taller adjustable stands and put the truck up around 4" higher do I can cycle suspension easier and fully as well as get under it to wire/plumb on the sides of the frame. Cycled the rear suspension and it will swing a bit over 36" of travel. Front will swing 24" but I will limit those numbers down. How much travel should I shoot for front and rear? It's around 115" wheelbase.

More tedious mounting of stuff and I know for sure I will forget some stuff after it's painted so I will have to touch that up, but that's fine and expected.

Also this morning I went to the RPM Nationals Drag Race up in Santa Margarita which was really cool since it's all vintage cars and they actually drive them hard, Flatheads, 4 bangers, etc. Didn't take many photos but here's a few
