Ooooo me like the truck.. :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:
Yeah the scab drives really well thanks . That's down to the 7 degree caster angle I built in . I don't even have a steering damper and she drives in a straight line flat out on the motorway... :D

Sorry dude
Forgot .... the cables are fine but I needed to modify the shift rod and I also put a bush in the shift rod tube to hold the rod in place ,,, Take a look at my thread on the scab or the panel van and see the mods :D

Morning all
Not a lot happening in the cave at the moment ...... Meanwhile over in the redneck restoration cave the hillbilly hauler is coming on nicely ... :wink: .... The engine cover is all stuck together now and the pickup bed is 90% finished so now the cab can come of and the motor and chassis can be detailed and any welding on the underside of the cab can be finished....
Here is a little porn for all you piggys ..... now squeal. :D

Afternoon all
I aint dead ......... And i finally finished my mates pickup ......
So today I started back on the old panel van by stripping the old paint of one side of the roof and sand blasting all the rusty bits ..... wish I had not started now as there is loads of holes were the rust is so deep . Looks like I have some more welding to do ...... Threw a bit of etch primer on it for now just to keep the rust of ......
