I think it's time to make a list of what else is needed done.
 No particular order:

 

Parking Brake

Fuel tank (just got the new fitting for it)

Drive Shaft (waiting for the second one to arrive)

Hydraulic lines

Hydraulic filter mount.

Oil cooler mount

Wiring (adding in an oil pressure gauge)

Mount headlights

Exhaust

PAINT

 

That's about it as far as I can tell at the moment!

Finishing the exhaust things out.Took an air die grinder with a scotch bright to the pipe. That looks better.

Made up the muffler brace. It is 3/8" square stock I bent with the press. Plates are 3/16" strap.

Looks good. I can imagine that it must be pretty quite.

Don't know yet! I haven't wired the engine up.

I welded some bushings on where the hood bolts on, hoping for a better fit but it bit me! Hood was leaning and did not fit near close enough. So some tweaking was in order.

First off I identified the hood was leaning to the left side.

And it was not fitting well around the dash.

2015-09-13 09.54.37.jpg

 

I took the hood off and sure enough I had a problem to solve. The RH side hinge pin location was about 3/16" lower than the left.

Here's the LH side.

2015-09-13 10.40.39.jpg

 

And the RH.

Pic showing the gap. The stack of metal was snug under the other side.

2015-09-13 10.41.15.jpg

 

I cut the RH tab loose and reset it to match the LH. A bit of metal forming at the dash area got things more to my liking.

There is a piece of belting that goes between the hood and dash, similar to the type found around the seats. That will help with any other issues. I think the hood is now ready for Steve to work over!

Always little things that sneak up on you during such a project, but no biggie.  Hood is sitting pretty now!  I look forward to what Steve does to the hood finish.

I moved on to the parking brake. I am planning to use the original, just mounted differently. I had to take everything back down to basics to figure it out.

2015-09-13 14.28.55.jpg

 

Here's what the original linkage looks like.

2015-09-13 14.29.27.jpg

 

I made an adapter for that to hook to.

2015-09-13 15.06.47.jpg

 

And found out I need more clearance for it to work!

2015-09-13 16.27.03.jpg

 

I'll strip it down tomorrow and cut the required clearances. I will also weld a bunch of nuts to the inside so everything unbolts from outside. I set it up for minimum space and am paying for it now. Oh well, I'll enjoy it when done! But I pity the next owner!

He worked over the LH side (exhaust) the other day and it is real good! I still had some things to do to the hood, so I stopped him from going further. I'll be real happy with it, for sure! I'm not looking for perfect, just very nice looking overall!

Time to revisit the list. It's getting smaller!

Looks like your making some head way. Seems to always be something that needs to be reworked to , get it to fit and work the way you want it to. The end result is going to be well worth all the ups and downs. Meanwhile going to keep a eye on your progress.

There's always something you didn't think about originally, especially doing a build like this. Glad to take you along as I progress through it! This is when I have the most fun, just building it!

Kenny, I thought about doing the exact same thing with the lights.
