    Update, haven’t done much lately, been flying and waiting on my painter. Putting some miles on the truck but having idle surge issues with the Holley Sniper. It will all work out in time.

    Is there a story with your third photo? Did you add extra fiberglass to the cab top, or just smoothing things out?

    No thatís just the way it came, still need to add a headliner or flock it. Leaning toward flock as I donít want issues down the road with glue not holding in our desert heat. Will keep everyone updated on which I use.

    On post 169 the middle picture is showing a bracket for the shoulder belt. Did you purchase or make it? I am building
    a roadster with 3 point harness and trying to find a nice bracket for the roll bar. Hope to see the truck at HB 2020 since
    2019 seems to be a bust.

    Bracket is available from factory five hopefully the roll bar diameter is the same, thinking it’s different.

    Warning!! Check the stainless steel panels for good adhesion to the resin parts. As you can see mine has several loose panels requiring me to purchase 3m panel adhesive and applicator to repair. It appears the FFR adhesive sticks to the resin parts fine but not so the stainless steel. I am going to scuff up the SS before applying. It appears no preparation was done prior to installation at FFR.

    Marv, in post 187, is that a trap door opening for battery access? I am thinking about that.
    Looking good.
