Looking good. Were going to do our 34 Dodge tow truck in a couple of years.

Can you take a good picture of your spare tire mount and tell how long the tube that holds the tire? You have been a great help.

Thanks you

Dave

Busy weekend getting back into the shop, 

 

1) Wired up the gauge cluster, added thermostat to the block, and bent and attached 3/16" tube for the oil pressure gauge.

2) Wired up the igntion switch, panel lights, and headlights.

3) Installed Wiper, and added the top covers....

4) Installed glove box, hinge and cover.

5) Cut wood for the floor boards, will add a thumb hole on the battery side with terminal access...and need to cut out the half moon on the bottom for the E-Brake drum....

 

Tested panel lights, horn, and the starter pedal, all checked out fine....

Ran the cordless drill on the Speedo, added another 1/10 of mile....😁 

 

All interior nuts and bolts are original hardware, cleaned up and polished.
