SanFord has not been forgotten. It's just been too damn hot to work on it. Since my last post, the blasting is complete. It took several hours to clean all the sand and dust out of the interior.
Paint is almost complete.
I haven't quite decided how the front is going to be painted. Hopefull I'll make some progress on that tomorrow.
I've had the devil of a time with side view mirrors. I really don't want some junky mirror hanging off the side, so I've been playing around with using cameras.
This is stuck up there with a magnet to get some idea of what the placement would have to be.
Then there would be three of these screens mounted in the dash. One for each side camera and one for the back. The screens are 7". The view is several times better than what you can get with a mirror. I will still probably mount mirrors, but they will be more for redundancy than primary.
More to come, and as the weather down here cools off, it should happen faster.
