Been a while since I posted. I sold Voodoo so I could concentrate on my other projects so I have to get this one going so I have a ride. I finished the cage and put in a hinged door bar on the passenger side for easier access. I built a panel for the msd and relays. Hopefully keep away from the rats nest I had with the other truck.

Getting the fender extended so we can start on body work.

I got the bars done in the bed and fitting in the fuel system.

That is so I can work on the electronics. I used to have a really hard time accessing the wiring and such.

I hear ya but she is still out there. I sold Voodoo to Mark who drove her for quite a while.

I started working on the fuel system. I got the pump mounted and the intake hoses ran.

Started getting to work on the body, test fitting the fenders. They fit pretty good, starting to look like a truck again.

Still working on the front end. I have a new hood that sat out in the rain before I got it. Lots of surface rust and the front edge was rusted out. Funny thing I figured out, the valance has the same exact contour as the hood. I had a spare so it got sacrificed. Now how the get the surface rust off.

Just about got the dash done. Still need some tweaking but its starting to come together.

I striped all the old paint off of the drivers fender. Amazing it looks really good without all the crud on it.

I have been making progress. Getting the interior ready for paint. I have new tires and wheels for the front etc. I will take some more pictures later. Here is the trans cooler mounted in the bed. I made some brackets to set it away from the wall. Should I cut a hole for airflow?
