                Always a PIA with header/pwr steering box. I'm thinking of going with the Borgeson power box 1962-82 Mopar Steering Box Upgrade With Borgeson (of course for my project that's years away...) much smaller and "supposedly" provides more header clearance.

                  Bunch of detail stuff to do so lining it up. Ran out of time at shop. Had one day and was going to liquidate everything but only one guy showed up so I packed everything up and got it all into my storage except transmissions and engines. Told the wife if I die there are at least 100 items in there and likely more. Sell everything for $10 an item. Lol

                  :thumbsup: Cool......you kept the air shocks. When I got that thing, the air shocks had about 600 lbs. of air in them, and the torsion bars were cranked all the way up. I checked to see if there was a transfer case behind the transmission! LOL.

                    Splash shields cleaned and undercoat removed. Quick shot of paint for plastic. Painted the bumper brackets and filler panels. Forgot to snap a pic but they look like black metal brackets.
