  1. I'll be there, I missed this years since I didn't get all the paperwork sorted. I'm already now 😄
  2. Not posted in a while, I guess I've been too busy working on my truck. Here's a few things I've done over the last few months. Cut the steel bed out and replaced it to some new wood. Used poplar from Lowe's and stainless strips from the web Fixed the two side windows with new glass. Fixed all the gauges and sourced a used speedometer All the exterior and gauge and blinkers lights working now Replaced the rear shocks, they were really bad. Cleaned up the interior and made some temporary seat covers. See, I've been busy 🙂
  3. Use an ohm meter across the Fuel Sender terminals (with the wires disconnected from the Fuel Gauge). You should get somewhere between 10 ohms (full) and 90 ohms (empty). Then reconnect to the Fuel Sender to the Fuel gauge. You should have a wire from the ignition switch that goes to the SW terminal on the fuel gauge. When you turn on the ignition switch, you should have about 6 volts on the SW terminal. On the GA terminal on the fuel gauge you should have less that 6 volts on that terminal (the voltage will vary depending on what the fuel sender resistance is). Make sure all the terminals are clean and making a good connection. You also need to make sure that there is a good ground connection on the fuel gauge itself. That ground connection relies on grounding the fuel gauge through the small mounting screws on the back of the gauge, and then the mounting screws for the actual mounting of the gauges, grounds itself to the dash. If either of those screw connections don't make a good connection to ground then the fuel gauge will read intermittently.
  4. Here you go, here's two pics from the back how the fender bolts to the grill
  5. I can take pics tomorrow for you, what would you like specifically pics of
  6. Headlights in and wired, tug goes to the garage next week to fix the brake leak, and have twin exhausts fitted, then it's brum brum time. Wiring is about 90% complete
  7. Almost done with the metal bashing, before and after pics
  8. Ha, ha, PB blaster, most of the bolts I've encountered on tug needed a cut off wheel.
  9. It's the angle of the shot, but then again, very little is square on Tug, he's got bits drooping all over the place ,😂
  10. Ha, ha, I'm sure that will be in Tugs future, there's way too much room at the top of the wheel arch. Btw, that motor runs sweet, starts right up, just a tad of throttle, and brum, brum, brum, every time.
  11. Well lookie here, Tug slipped into his new shoes today. Full lock, left and right, no clearance issues or rubbing whatsoever.
