    SYCO, I knew that was gonna come. I guess thats the price that has to be paid right? Me and Vince got the steering colum mounted and secure. Gotta say this thing is starting to come together. Now I can start on the driver side of the dash. These late nights are killing me but its the only time I can get down to the shop and put in some hours. I should be able to get the dash all done by this weekend.

    Well she is almost ready for the Mud. Got the last piece in place. It needs something around the steering column where it meets the dash, I think. I'll come up with something. So what do you guys think? Good, bad, ugly???

    Started in on the steering AGAIN. I picked up a box from an early chevy pick up like the box that the Durant has on it..Its way to freakin big. So its back to the Corvair box. Cant wait for the swap at Turlock. Need to pick up some steering joints so I can get back at it. Wife is kinda ticked off due to the nights that I come in at 3 am. She told me "No more comming home at 3 am." The next night I came in a 2 am. Nope wasnt good enough. Man I just cant win. Im just glad Im not working on it in my garage.

    In my opinion, that's looking to be the coolest dash I've ever seen in a T. VERY well done.

    Thanks tfeverfred. I was thinking that it might be to big of a guage for the Dodge but as it started to come together I saw that it was be just right for the roadster.

    Well I got the trans tunnel done last night. It sucked trying to get under that dash to weld it up. kinda think that I shoud have done the trans tunnel first. Well learn as you go on your first build right? Pics to come
