Make sure the wire bridges the rubber rag joint. It looks like it does, but sometimes pics are hard to make sure.
Sure enjoying the build. I could take a lesson in speediness from you.
You are moving right along.
Thank you. However, it may not be as speedy as portrayed. The first set of pictures are from last summer. I didn't find this forum until recently.
The business that I have acid dip the parts is 140 miles away and it takes a week for the dipping process so that slows things down considerably. I hate driving over the Santiam pass during winter blizzards especially when pulling a trailer with large body parts loaded.
I did find and buy another 70 J2500 from another member on this forum. Will drive to SOCAL the end of this month to pick it up. Between the two I may end up with a great truck
