    turn signals

    Ok I am ready to go get weighed for registration. Now I have all functional lights, horn. The outer bumper mount turn-flex lights were there already and match rears so I just had to rewire for my turn signals and stock ones are now running lights.

    I rerouted the vent hose under the hood hinge since my air cleaner takes up the space where it use to go.

    Next make the supports for the air cleaner over valve covers like originals had.

    I really want to go get these tires dirty now

        I have a old auto shop with lots of stuff in the attic, I went digging and found these.

          Nice shape for about 40 years old....

          Did some Googling and found some history...

          http://articles.chicagotribune.com/1...parts-products

          The Everco name pops up a few times but the Malaysian Exhaust manufacturer looks like the big gun.

          I'll keep looking, found it once before and will find it again
          Thanks,

              Air duct hose

              I found some nice 4" hose here: pegasusautoracing.com
              Look up "air duct hose" in the search bar. They have single and double wall neoprene, and their prices are about the best I could find.

                The 6' should be perfect.

                      It looks like it works well, I like that truck more every time I see it.

                        I'd be interested in seeing close ups of the spot light inside and out please.

                          No problem, back on #28 there is a good inside shot and I will get an outside.

                            spot light

                            Unity spot

                            All I see is the ugly mirror in that last shot haha, I fix that soon. They were on there when I got the truck.

                              mirrors

                              I am glad to have found a pair of mirror bases for Al yesterday up in the mountains, they came with a pair of doors that are in pretty good shape too. I don't need the doors but won't hurt to have some spare parts.

                              I need to look for the round mirror part as these are rotted and no glass.

                                Hauling Power Wagon parts in a Power Wagon is something that makes me smile.
