Default Todays progress.....

Still at it.
Frame and cab stripped down to the essentials.
Dakota seat is a near perfect fit.
A few holes to patch on firewall, cab mounts to fix.
Doors waiting to be taken apart.
Engine waiting for a pan change to clear front of frame.

Made a deal with a mobile sand blaster guy to blast everything in trade for a sign design and cut with my CNC plasma set up. He will be here Wednesday.
I love a good barter.

Default The smell of new tires in the shop....

235/75r15 tires on rims to be determined.
Probably plain painted steel with beauty rings.
Should ride smooth as glass on the Michelins and the Dakota suspension.

Is this an optical illusion or does the tranny/engine set to one side on the Dakota cross member?

It does look like it in the picture. I looked at the drive shaft when taking it out and it was parallel with the frame. So I'd say its "delusional" or something.

OR NOT!!! It is off set. I guess to get clearance for the rack and pinion steering..

Sorry about the picture. I tried to rotate it.
