        Finshed the fencing project with my brother yesterday.
        Replaced all the rotted wood with steel.

          Not just today, but all weekend. Work on the Duster seems endless but the list is getting shorter.
          Fitted the fiberglass hood on hinges with low tension springs. Set up the shifter and made the KD linkage work with the TTIs. Tie rods, alignment. Installed driveshaft and some other garbage underneath. It all runs together now.

            Removed the exhaust, wire brush and cleaned the underbody. Getting closer to reassembly. Planning to use Eastwood encapsulator underneath

              Knocking some rear spring clamps off and adding some drag shocks in preparation for test & tune this coming Saturday! Hope to get a bunch more little things ready too!

                Cruise-in & car show in Willow Springs, Mo. (about 20 miles away). Had been scheduled for yesterday but showers and clouds postponed to the rain date... free burgers/dogs/pulled pork provided again, but this year we had to pay $1 for sodas. Not a problem :)

                This tankful, with one drive to town and back and today's 65-70 mph run up to Willow, actually broke 10 mpg (7.26 gal, 73.5 miles). All that carb tuning seems to have paid off

                  Just a 170 mile round trip to work in the Duster today. If a guy has to drive that far it might as well be fun!

                      Got my new transmission yesterday, mated it to my stroker sb.
                      It's going in real soon!!!
                      I can't wait.

                                  I was going to put my motor/transmission back in my 67, but then I realized I didn't have the shield!

                                  Ordered one from classic and it will be here tomorrow.

                                      Underbody sealed up...

                                      PITA but now feel good about getting at replacement of brake lines.. All that scrubbing and degeeasing paid off. I'm happy with it

                                        Thank you :thankyou:... the prep was brutal. Great to see the payoff finally.

                                          I remember seeing your posts while working on it. I also know how brutal mine will be if I ever decide to do it.

                                            Made huge progress on the duster. Finally added brake fluid to the system and bled brakes. Changed out the slant torsion bars for 340 bars. Put a few gallons of gas in the new fuel system. Cranked her over and fired the engine!
                                            Had my 5yr old add 5 qts of trans fluid. (He was so excited to see it run!) Ran it through all gears (on jack stands) which was the first time it has turned it rear wheels on it's own power since early 2000's!
                                            Huge milestones today. Getting real close to finishing body and paint.
