Made good progress on this yesterday. Finished pulling all of the wiring harnesses to their locations.
Modified domelight harness from a bus to a single cab. Domelight installed.
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.
Passenger door window mostly assembled, need to order a couple of small bits to finish it up but that won’t hold up install.
Rounded up parts that need to be sent out for chrome.
Semaphores sanded and prepped for paint.
We will build it if it comes.John JonesKeymasterSeptember 17, 2019 at 6:48 amPost count: 5394

Theme for today was transmission.
Had to pull some parts from your old split trans. Had to hunt some part from the stock pile.
Clearanced nose cone for the lollipop adapter.
Seamless axle boots by Franz.
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.
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!!
We will build it if it comes.JbParticipantSeptember 21, 2019 at 7:25 amPost count: 503
