Engine has been mocked up. Exhaust manifolds sent out for ceramic coating. Spent some time this week on the harness to get it fitted correctly. Axle work being done this week, along with swapping in the RE suspension. Got a set of 33s mounted to the chrome wagons.



Next up, body work to get the W-O replitub shored up.

Some photos of the worst offenders in the replitub:










There's also a spot in the firewall where they bent the opening for the throttle cable. One of the fenders has a good bend in it, too. Pretty whack, but didn't get a picture of those. The internal measurements are just a tad off - the bulkhead doesn't fit in perfectly like it did in the OEM tub, but should with some work.

All in all, it's OK considering what I was working with. Provided it mounts up well (which it should, I had to replace the tub to frame mounts after all), it should be an acceptable working replacement.
