    There you go. Nice and I agree about no key switch on the column. Big no no.

    That's what I call hot rodding . You take what you got and make what you need! Of course using Rich Plichetts the late head of West Coast Customs 57 delivery as inspiration with its Bill Hinz chop and paint with a Jerry Wesner of Street Rodder /Custom Rodder fame scallop layout and Larry Watson pin striping put's a little pressure on you to do good! lol Larry

    That was worth it. Nice. Always liked the shifter on the column with automatics. Makes more sense to me especially with a bench seat.

    Thanks man! Still got figure out how I'm gonna make the linkage work to the trans, the shift lever is just inside of the firewall. I can cut it and transition it further down the column but space is at a premium lol. I've got this idea of using a morse cable? I'll figure something out. And thanks for pushing me to cut the column, i read your post and it was like an old high school football coach giving me a pep talk lol

    Heck yeah! When you tell people that you work 24 on/48 off, they always say "i couldn't stay awake that long" i used to explain that the station is just like home, we have bedrooms, kitchen, living room etc, and after 8pm we're allowed to go to sleep, but now i just say "you get used to it" lol

    Do you have a pole you get to slide down and is the mustache part of the uniform?:)

    No pole :( and the mustache is in rebellion because you're not allowed to have facial hair past your jawbone. The pole was removed because sleeping quarters are no longer above the apparatus bay, thanks to all of the carcinogens in diesel exhaust

    Is that the cable that normally goes from the floor shifter to the column for the key lock?

    I thought you guys had those mustaches so you didn't look like cops. A fire house without a pole that's a shame.

    I want to apologize on this thread also for going off topic. I did the same on my own thread and had some posts deleted. I don't want that to happen here so I'll be sure to stay on point from now on.

    I think i could make that work easier than modifying the column

  25. Worth a try, it’s a “push-pull” type of cable

    Power steering hoses.... there's a plain standard power steering pump on my motor, and the 605 box which I'm gonna run with until i see how it works, so what can i scavenge hoses from? I don't have no idea what cars that box came on originally...

  30. Nice project and progress Lloyd! Maybe Satin for the body like you want and silver flake vinyl wrap for the roof! Just an idea.
