So this weekend made a little more progress. Got the side moldings on the bed mounted, went to fit the passenger side fender trim and its off by a mile. No amount of tweaking will get it to fit, so checking with the manufacturer about getting another piece, every other piece in the kit fit perfect. Checked the fender and its good.

Also got the driveline from the shop and got installed and got the brakes bled so it now moves on its own. I backed it out of the driveway went up and down the block slowly checking brakes. Got one dragging and I have to mess with the parking brake cables as they hit the shifter level when its pulled.
