A Welcome break from things political...

Whoa...he's been a bit busy today. Starting to look like something. We'll prime it and hit the switch tomorrow evening. (Hope we remember to take a video clip during all the excitement). Christmas comes early!

It's a factory Air Conditioning equipped truck, but that system needs some work so what you see for now is the mounting bracket modded a bit to mount the Alternator.

Thank you for all the threads, encouragement, and complements. Working on the truck my grandfather used to take me hunting in..well it's just a great feeling. Many Thanks to Normaldave for all the help, words can't express my thanks... I just received access to GON today, so I'll attach some updates
 
Sweet! After redoing a 68' half cab bronco that was a farm truck myself, my hats off to this good looking restoration.

Needs some dice hanging from the rearview.
 
I wanted to thank everyone for your comments, this has been and continues to be a fun project for me. I am very thankful for normaldave's guidance and help turn wrenches. This was a huge learning opportunity that I can't thank him enough for. Attached picture of my dad who has been Making America Great since 1947 and my son at Star Mill on old 85.
