    Pat on the gun!  Nice job!  Blocking with a paint stick?  Looks finger-numbing….

    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….  😎

    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??

    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.

    Think I located a starter button. I’ll give it to you guys this week at the open house. Now I just need to find a fuse box?

    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!!!!  😎

    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!
