Great job on the brackets.
Left over pressure treated plywood, from my neighbor that replaced the floor in his boat.
Just one note (and you may already know this), but pressure treated lumber is very corrosive to certain metals. Make sure to get a good coat of paint on the plywood once it has cured well.
I'm loving your project, tho.
Thanks Guy , I did not know that.
It can also have nasty lung stuff in it. Careful sanding/cutting it.
Too much of that around without adding treated wood dust...
Corona treatment......it's arsenic I believe...Just another Hazard in the Shop...
Moral of the Story...
Always be careful what you dirty your nostrils with...no joke...right up there with those NOS asbestos laden brake shoes one might find at a swap meet.
The treated wood products I buy from Menard's are listed as arsenic free!
That's good too know Dick, I was just going on past perhaps very dated knowledge but might be worth reading the fine print beyond that statement however...
So I found this foam at work several months ago and tried several conglomeration, and this is most comfortable. I can’t move forward till I’m comfortable as a 56 year old fat ass can be.
I found this on the internet last week and ordered 10 yards , at 54” wide . Gonna have enuff to cover whole truck . By now all followers know I’m A.D.D. and wake up in a different world every day.
Seats, door, quarter and kick panels, tonneau cover for the cab and bed, pedal pad, shift knob and steering wheel wrap, shift boot, pedal boots, the possibilities are vast!
I finally got around to working on steering column .
Great work. Keep it up.
Steering wheel at final location, Shifter will be altered again to work around wheel.
Bottom steering column bracket made, pedals shortened another 2”.
See it better.
Thanks for this tidbit!
Now I’m on their website! There’s all kinds of cool stuff!
Going to have to remember these guys!
I drug to work today , will be taking to Ennis Muffler when I get off for exhaust. Lowmaster from HAMB will be doing it.
I normally don’t let other people work on my project .
While we may all strive for complete mechanical mastery, there is something to be said for the guy that does something 40+ hours a week and has all the equipment and supplies on hand. It often doesn't hurt to have a fresh set of eyes look things over either.
Excellent job by your exhaust guy! Clean bends to clear steering shaft and oil filter.
Well I’m about to turn 77 and I enjoy the mild sound of my Stainless Works steel packs exiting all the way out the back

Got the lawnmower tank hooked back up , and did the old pantyhose legs tied around pulleys to work water pump ( this will work on alternators and generators to keep you off the side of road) . I cranked first time with new oil pump, timing chain, and water pump. Sounds like a 283 with straight pipes.
Nice work Peck.
Started building the throttle pedal , I copied the way RUSTY mounted the pedal on the Arnett Roadster, that he built. But mine will be using a Lokar style black cable. Swap meet pedal came from Pate swapmeet in Texas , the rest came from hardware store and Atwood’s Farm Supply.
Finished up your shift knob! That ounce of silver sure does shine
