Any more updates on your 65 project, Les?
BTW, I'm just up the road from you.
Not much visual to report. I've been working on brake lines, power steering lines, Vintage Air lines and wiring. I have a American Autowire kit and, while it's really complete, virtually all of the under-dash wiring is much longer than it needs to be. Plus, I have a Dakota Digital dash and I'm using their adapter that feeds the instruments through the OBDII port so, a lot of the instrument wiring from the harness is not needed. I'm spending a lot of time trying to cut off some of the excess and reduce the "rat's nest". With the Vintage Air ducts behind the dash, there's not a lot of room unnecessary wiring.
I probably could have started the engine weeks ago but, I don't seem to be able to concentrate on one area until it's done. I'll work on one thing for a while and move to something else. I rationalize that it doesn't matter what I'm working on as long as I do something every day and, it contributes to the end result.
Were you at Goodguys last month? My wife and I worked parking in the "Home Built Heaven" and "Young Guns" lot on Saturday. I will
have my 65 done for the Fall show so, I don't know if I'll work the show or, just display.
I live in Justin, which is just a few miles north of Texas Motor Speedway. If you're going to be down this way let me know. Maybe we can get together and talk trucks.
BTW, I love your 70. I had a black 69 many years ago.
