Gates done this morning.
We will build it if it comes.John JonesKeymasterSeptember 5, 2019 at 7:28 amPost count: 6446
Nailed them GATES!!!! They look super awesome!!! The whole truck came out awesome..!!
We sorted parts and such yesterday.. Fished some bailing wire through the frame and pulled the main wiring harness through, front to back, tapped all the holes in the truck for smooth assembly and am ready to hang some more parts this morning.. 😎 The only item I see so far we are missing is one fuse block…. 😎John JonesKeymasterSeptember 5, 2019 at 7:57 amPost count: 6446
I haven’t seen a Starter switch yet… This one takes the big one like a split bug….
You guys want us to use the reducs off the box that was in the bus??? Or.. Didn’t you guys buy a pair?? Maybe keep this one together and use those??CorporateModeratorSeptember 5, 2019 at 1:05 pmPost count: 835

Were getting this thing back together and polished up. JJ wet sanded and buffed the nose today and helped me bolt parts on.
Nose is like a mirror now!!!
Lids and gates on.
Maim wiring harness pulled. Lid props on.
Paint matched screws/bolts for latches and hinges.
Door mechs and strikers, cleaned, lubed and installed. Treasure chest mech received the same treatment.
Smooth long side rocker looks great!
More buffing and assembly tomorrow. More pics now!!!
We will build it if it comes.RustabusParticipantSeptember 5, 2019 at 8:24 pmPost count: 1902

Holy shit. KCW rocks. Killed it😬🤪😜ColeBModeratorSeptember 6, 2019 at 8:32 amPost count: 1525
Man this is an awesome truck!
So no fuse box or starter button at all? I’ll ask around.
we have a set of reduction boxes I believe. At the warehouse. Would be good to keep that trans together since I thinks it’s the original and then throw this other set of reduction boxes on it.FranzKeymasterSeptember 6, 2019 at 9:33 amPost count: 3461

We have one fuse block, but your fancy pants 52 takes 2!!! …. and if it comes to it.. I could steal one from the single cab out back.. (storage fee)
Remember.. it takes the larger split bug push button starter switch.. black please….
We went ahead and gave it the California rub down… Today, I will give it the California SHINE!!!! 😎John JonesKeymasterSeptember 9, 2019 at 6:57 amPost count: 6446
the more you rub it.. the sharper it gets…. 😎ColeBModeratorSeptember 9, 2019 at 10:01 amPost count: 1525
Cool! I will get on the one fuse box! Can you post a pic of the one with the truck? Is it Metal knob, or bakelite knob cover? Picking up the push button today and I will send pics!ColeBModeratorSeptember 9, 2019 at 11:20 amPost count: 1525
