I only have two small pieces to weld on the cab so hopefully i get it painted soon. I'm gonna shoot for getting the cab back on the frame in the next month or two. and I'm getting a universal wire harness. So by the end of winter I'm gonna try and just have the bed left. I like to have it done by this summer, but realistically it will probably be more like next summer because I keep gettin side tracked with other stuff.

Thanks. snow is around the corner and my plow truck had an electrical fire while just sitting in the driveway so i gotta fix that asap. and the fire was only a few months of re-painting it. luckly i got a wire harness and everything else i needed under the hood for $200 from a friend and i got it mostly working and back together just gotta re-paint the hood and right fender which i hope to make time to finish that this week.

i built the motor and i haven't had it dyno tested, but its bored .40 over has port polished e7 heads from an early 90's mustang. the camshaft has an Advertised Duration 276/286, Lift .471/.471 and i put in valve springs and roller rocker arms that match the cam. i also ground and seated the manely vales myself too. for the intake i have an edlebrock performer, and i still gotta buy a carb. im hoping for at least 350hp, but i have seen motors with similar setups pushing 370 to 400, but i will just have to wait and see.
