    Andy, I assume you must have been having phone (Apple?) posting problems? Looks like you have now mastered it, great work on the engine and the phone.
    I drive a DODGE, not a ram!

    Thanks,

      I posted pics at the beginning of this thread, four photos at the same time even. I used a resizing app as well at 10%.

        Andy, great job on the photos, engine looks good to. I have an extra 315 in a parts truck, I was thinking about either selling or tearing it down, maybe after I get this project wrapped up.

              Where did I leave off with this thread IMG_20170717_152511985.jpegIMG_20171027_132431986.jpegIMG_20171027_132408589.jpeg before pics stopped loading two pages ago? Oh ya, engine compt.
              After the engine fired and lifters pumped up on second start, I took it for a quick spin around the yard then out on the road to see if I could make it through the gears. There is a YouTube vid of this also, some have viewed it already. It's tough to get into granny but everything else shifted fine. So I backed it into the garage and started removing engine compt components, inner fender wells etc. I installed a new water pump, belts, hoses. Wire wheeled, sanded, degreased, and blew every thing out then began spot priming and painting. I did something different with the radiator, and left the top bare brass. Here are some before and after shots.

                Pismo, that was two summers ago project, had been sitting for 30 years, took me 7 weeks to get it cleaned up and gone thru. Now it's my grocery getter. Have a guy wanting it, might have to pass it on down the line.

                  It's 90% original paint, hard to find anything here in Ohio that solid that hadn't been hacked up. It has 60k miles.

                      Thanks Pismo, it was easy to climb in under the fender once the inner wheel wells were removed.

                      So, after the engine compartment, I moved to the interior. Before pic. IMG_20170717_152215376.jpeg

                        It was a mess as you can see! I sifted through foam and found a few goodies like the horn button and the last license tag from 1992 Arizona. A bunch of replacement wiper blades and a handful of expended 357 Magnum shells.

                        I had no interior trims or panels remaining, so I used visqueen, taped it up, traced out patterns and made my own panel backers and used spray adhesive and wrapped them in a black vinyl. The seat, I took out of my parts truck and bought a slip on cover for now. Again lots of cleaning and elbow grease. Buffing and waxing as I went along.

                          Loved watching that video, thank you for sharing.
                          that engine sounds very smooth. The 315 to me has a very distinctive sound. They all have a very rhythmic, systematic tick and chatter to them.
                          Did you by chance take individual pictures of how you made your interior? That turned out fantastic.
                          Very nice work.

                            No, I did not. It was time consuming since I had nothing to start from. I just taped clear plastic up and traced the individual pieces as I saw them in other people's interiors. Cut out the plastic sheeting as a pattern and cut my backing from that. Dry fit and trimmed as needed. Once I had all my pieces fitting together to what I felt was acceptable, I measured for the headliner. This took the most time since it is the largest piece, and I couldn't really do it with clear plastic. Alot of trial and error. Dry fitting....trimming......over and over. Once I was happy with the fitment I started putting my material on with spray adhesive. In hind sight, I should have gotten a roll of material instead of remnants that had been folded. All in all I am satisfied, it took me the better part of a day from start to finish.

                              Anybody out there have a good bolt in solution for a seat that gives a big guy the room he needs to turn the steering wheel?

                                So.....I'm working on the fenders for this bed. I had purchased a set with the 7 1/2' sides, but wanted a spare mount fender for it. I purchased one but it was pretty FUBAR. I decided to attempt a cut and weld, to make the standard fender which is relatively straight, into the spare mount fender. It's a one shot deal. I hadn't seen or heard of anyone doing this, so thought some might want to take a peek. The welding isn't finished, but it took me two hours to get to were I am now.
