    That’s stinks, worse comes to worse you’re welcome to bring the truck down here, just gonna be a good bit of time before I’ll be able to work on it with the shop addition and my current projects.

    Sounds good man, I'm gonna try to get it down to that place we're going to stay as soon as I can, hopefully I can so I can just pick up parts and button it up before I bring it to you. If they try to tow it or something before that, I may holler at you. I hope I can trick em til then though, thanks man

    Got a few things back from powder coat and installed. Bought all new stainless cap screws for everything under the hood. Put some heat tape on the edges of my heat shield to clean it up. Does anyone know if this is how the clutch line is supposed to be ran? It looks kind of awkward looks like it's just in the middle of nowhere.

    How did you get all the factory paint off? I'm pretty sure the factory E-Coat is done by total immersion, so any lap joints would still have paint in there, even after a thorough sandblasting.

    Whatever you did, it looks good.

    Just sandblasted, it came off fairly easily, no real problems?

    Hey guys, I wanted to hit yall up, I'm working like 84 - 94 hours a week, I just don't have time to make it to the junkyard! The powder coater lost a couple of my parts, or I lost them before I got to him? But the two brackets that bolt the radiator support to the front fenders? L shaped, 4 bolts in one side and 2 in the other? I am hoping somebody has a parts truck they could sell some pretty cheap!

    In the middle of this pic you can see a clip on the firewall painted black. As I recall, the clutch line clips here and one or two other places along the firewall with similar clips. As it leaves the M/C it should route over to the firewall and travel down mostly against it meeting the clips as they are encountered.
