I want to say "Thank you" to all of you for the nice comments on my project.

This sweet old girl if finished and back on the road again and I'm really pleased with the way she runs.
I put about 40 miles on the truck just before these last photos were taken.

Only found two problems so far. ......
The gas pedal bottoms out on the floor before the throttle is open all the way and I still haven't gotten the ammeter to read yet so I still need to figure that out.;

Here is the finished interior.

When you lift the hood, this is how it looks.

I removed the " Cummins Turbo Diesel " emblem from the tailgate of the Dodge and mounted it on the back of my truck bed.

I also got some emblems off ebay and mounted them on each side of the cowl, just in front of the door.

That is sitting up proper and proud, Ray! Glad you got a few miles on it. There are always a few bugs to work out. Sounds like a couple simple fixes!

Looks absolutely fantastic. And as far as I'm concerned it couldn't set any better. I'd be proud as a Peacock if that was mine.
