Managed to get a few little things done in spite of the heat & humidity and hope to get more done this weekend...
Now have brand new front springs courtesy of Eaton Detroit. Great folks to work with. They also had the necessary hanging hardware to fit this antique, all right off the shelf.
Thru-wall fuel box is ready to mount once the interior panel is positioned and cut. And yes...that is a floor-shift boot that is doing duty to seal off the filler and keep outside stuff outside.
Left & right bumper/deck extension plates. The fold up rear deck will attach at these points.
And finally...the LP tank is now mounted. Fitted behind the passenger side duallies via a 3/8" steel plate welded to the frame & body mounts. Not plumbed yet, but ready to hook up. It is seen through one of the access hatches I cut in the rear quarter panels. I am making hinged doors for them to ease access under there.
