• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

Cab and bed are out for sandblasting, bottim line I would hate to die with a pocket full of cash and have a bunch of stuff I wanted to do. I will keep it, I really think it has already been through it's depresation cycle anyway. Plan was all along to put a real fine paint job on it so all the mock up is done and it will be at the paint shop for a bit then hope to be riding this spring.

I am pressing to get a few other winter projects out, this is the time of year my wife and I bond in the shop. Cool thing is this is my junk so do it the way I like. Here's the tette with a cummins going in. It is also getting, power steps, power windows, power door locks, ac, cruse, back up camera, heated seats, air ride w/in cab controls, and a killer radio with xm.

Well it's been a little longer than I had thought but here are the updates. Gauges are in and working. As you can see always use a sharp drill a little touch up is required on the dash.

I have a few penny's in the grill and custom radiator but I think the look is spot on from the front. The triple diamond badge came from a fellow in australia was a little spendy but is like the cherry on the Sunday. Also the folks at the chrome shop did a great job with all the trim and chrome.

The led tail lights look good the rear will look better when the pin stripping and air brushing is done. Also need to get the bed floor done.
