Well this weekend was a busy one! Was able to hit a major milestone this weekend. Started with rearranging the shop, so this was the first time the frame had hit the sunshine as well as the freshly painted cab.

One the rearranging was down it was finally time to drop the cab back onto the frame and get it bolted down with fresh mounts. Didn’t take any picks of the process as it was touchy the entire time.

Once the cab was secured back onto the frame, it was back to bolting stuff back into the cab. Got all the door trim and emblems added, door seals installed, door handles and locks, got the radio in, gas tank bolted back in. This coming week the goal is to get the dash back together and steering column back in.
