So I still can’t get it to run from the tank but I’ve been making progress! Mostly making a giant shopping list and buying a bunch of stuff for it. See list:

I was really debating full headers and HD shocks, but given how much of a turd this thing is, I decided to just do everything the cheap way. I also tracked down free rear glass and I’ll be buying some 14" wheels for it soon too. (It currently wears 13" wheels)

This is all stuff I know I’ll need. I haven’t even touched the brakes yet so I’ll have to probably buy wheel cylinders for the drums too. Hopefully this thing can get on the road soon!
