so with the truck in paint .. I need to get a gate built . the original one was steel , and I don't want that , it's gonna rust eventually ..
so started cutting the hinges and gutting the inner ... also going with a little different , haven't posted this before , but I also build a smooth gate that has the handle moved to the inside .. (mock up on the old gate )



also .. never done this before , and I have never seen it done ? but I'm going to try "clean up" and powder coat a throttle body
so I tor it apart , and got it all cleaned up .
I needed to first make sure I could secure the butterfly plate , and done .. so , lets see where this goes Smile

so got a phone call today .. inners are all done Smile




so with that , I needed to get a few more pieces done ..

started stripping the firewall brake and clutch lines





cleaned up the clamps and got some powder on them , as well as the hood lock , and the fuel line clips .



also ... I'm going to try something I have never done before ... so wish me luck
I parted out an original 2WD Mojave a couple years back , and I kept the leather wrapped steering wheel . leather is not in good shape , so I'm going to re-wrap it .

so a change in plans .... so bare with me here , this is absolutely going to add some time to this build !
my original plans were to do parallel twin turbos . doing some research and talking to people , well they basically talked me out of doing it and I put the idea on the back burner ..

well it's now front and center ... forget the neigh sayers , I'm gonna do it anyway !

so I'm starting with a NEW custom plenum .. as I want the throttle body at the front , not the side .

and it all starts with a throttle body mount





matched to the T/B




now time to clean it up Smile
