    Modified domelight harness from a bus to a single cab. Domelight installed. 8B20D96C-C962-4DC0-8A9F-C0FCD0DE4399

    Looks like we need to source 3 special clips to secure the dome light wire to the pinch weld seam along the back of the cab.10E6472B-C552-462E-9D38-E32E3839438E

    Passenger door window mostly assembled,  need to order a couple of small bits to finish it up but that won’t hold up install.4CFDF766-02D1-4F4C-A915-D3987FCC0C6B42B90569-338B-48DB-8F62-05F912888B3DBF373D53-4A05-4831-8974-B72A26578633BF701D10-88F8-4FE6-904C-B2812BA2CE2E

    Rounded up parts that need to be sent out for chrome. 6947C31B-4489-404D-915F-ECDB26363042

     Semaphores sanded and prepped for paint. FE561CF6-C777-4574-9E8E-5ECF73B1809A

    Theme for today was transmission.

    Had to pull some parts from your old split trans. Had to hunt some part from the stock pile. FBAEB350-CA92-465B-8C5B-8B7AEA706FB4741FD39D-7725-4EE8-ACCE-F908411CAF73CDF4EEDA-2847-44E8-80AA-404082F2AC02

    Realized backing plates I pulled from the spit case trans this morning would not work due to the donor redux boxes have been switched to later outer half’s. Backing plate fitment issues.7D97E741-FFA2-491F-9628-BAC0A5927D6A74D58AB3-687D-400B-B3A4-DCB93B04ED9B

     

    We had a set of later backing plates sealed and painted, score!!!  We will need to order some brake parts to  accommodate the later backing plates.

    Transmission all together and sealed!! 1A0C8744-A18F-406A-BA56-074F9069555FEC1EEA53-1A3C-4CFB-B556-9D3A076A04522693A0AC-0107-434E-8986-C80DD14BF261
