    Finally got almost all of the wires extended. Need to move some stuff around a little to get it all to sit nice but it looks infinitely bettwer than before I started.

    so one of maybe 3 things i have to do to wrap up the whole wiring is remove the heater stuff behind the dash, and push a plug inside the side of the cab for the ecu. so i spent my morning pulling the dash out. after seeing how much stuff has to come off im really debating on just going full racecar and leaving it off. ill make a mount for the gauges, and then a center panel for my lights, as well as the push button start and switches im about to hook up

    got the dash out today, as well as picked up the switches for my push button start. ive decided i am going to leave the dash out. ill start by making a mount for the ecu and gauges, as well as a center dash for switches and stereo.
    eventually i will start to build the dash out.

    Got the rest of the heater stuff out of the truck today, one more plug to extend and the ecu should be able to be plugged in inside the cab.

    I've gotten quite a bit done these past 2 days. Fenders back on, wiring harness is ran inside the cab and the ecu is ziptied up temporarily, egr delete is on and I received my drivers side mirror. Things are finally coming together.

    after some thought i have decided to at least put the dash back in for right now. so, this morning i got it inside and pulled the last of the heater venting and the hvac controls. its just set in the truck and held up with the steering column bolts in this picture. i need to secure the ecu behind it, ziptie up some wires, plug stuff back in and then this massive project is nearly done. tomorrow ive gotta get the spare dif ready to be welded so those things probably wont happen until wednesday.

    this morning i got the trans, o2 sensor, and starter all hooked back up as well as put the hood back on. i need to plug the dash in, bolt it up and then i should be able to start the truck and see if it catches fire.

    yesterday i put the tow strap on, got the seat in the truck, one of the mirrors on and started the truck for the first time! just need to get the dash in, its proving to be quite difficult since i was dumb and just threw screws in a pile thinking i wouldnt put the dash back in.

    not a big update, at all. bent some shit and got the breathers on. itll look much better once the valve covers are colormatched. after doing a bit more reading im really redebating sheetmetal dash because the damn thing refuses to go in.

    Yea it's coming off. I'm just trying to finish one thing before I start another lol that's what overwhelmed me so much when the harness was out.

    spent part of the morning pulling the wiring and support bracket from the dash, bolted the bracket in the truck and finally had an epiphany as to how i would build my own dash. basically just gonna make some brackets from right below the windshield to the dash bracket. ill then lay down and rivet sheetmetal on top of it. obviously a bit more will go into it than that. last part of my morning was spent with my homie in the hospital so thats always super fun!

    Freakin sweet...I love builds that have details like that. Some people would have went crazy and bought a different bumper or a big splitter or something and ruined the look...but that’s still somewhat subtle but also adds to the general vibe of the build. Nice.

    got the dash bent up, painted the bumper (need one more can to finish it), primed the valve covers and crank pulley, then the truck made it out of the garage on its own...and got stuck again lol
