    They’ve been swapping back and forth from right side up to upside down.
    Last night on the truck website they were upside down, this morning they were ok :blink:

    Got the left backing plate installed this afternoon and the other axle. The brakes are awesome. The truck is off the jack stands and finally back on four wheels. I also made some new hard line across the back of the diff.

    Drove an effortless 80 mph on the freeway yesterday. Unreal how well this truck drives. I’m used to sawing the wheel between 11 and 2 while going down the road. I have to get used to holding the wheel steady, like a normal vehicle.
    I got the sheet metal back on the truck by about 2pm on Saturday, I had to fix a split rear corner on one of the fenders. The lower spot weld on the inner bracing came loose and cracked the edge of the fender...

    Easy fix...

    I’ve decided on 1966 Arcadian blue with a Corvette white grille.
    Do a Google search for that color if you’re interested, it’s a powder baby blue. Should look good on this truck.
    I’m going to need to work some overtime to pull this off $$$. :(

    I’m anxious too. I wish I could afford to just finish it all now but it’s going to take a bit of time. I’m focused and I’m going to stay after it and get it done as soon as possible.

    The hood latch is locked but safety latch is in a box in the kitchen. I’m not taking any chances. :D
