Nice to see it progressing, way to improvise with the DIY spring compressor.
Thanks for sharing the pics!

Even with a bit smaller tires that bad boy is still going to be able to burn some rubber!

Been buying parts and getting it road worthy. Just getting turn signals working was fun rebuilding the front sockets. Bought new rear quarters, new front and rear bumpers. Finally got some mufflers on it. Didn't quiet it down much. Need to dig out my spare hood to see if it'* any better than the one that'* on it. Want to get it to my body man soon. Was thinking about painting it new a Ford blue but I think it will go back to original Teal Tourquoise (I can say it just can't remember how'* it'* spelt) LOL! Got all the interior out except front bucket seat. Didn't get the tranny changed cause of the weather changing and not having time. Been fixing the leaking 2-speed. Got pan gasket changed twice and finally got a new O-ring for the dip stick (also had to bend it a little cause it wasn't fitting all the way down inside).

Glad to hear there is some progress going on, buying parts is fun, I always feel like a kid on his Birthday when new parts come in.
I'd definitely stick with the original color, if anything give it some fine metallic flakes or something.
Can't wait to see pics of it when it is done, if you takes pics of any work being done, please share those as well, we'd love to see them.

Got the pivot bracket tack welded today. It'* the wrong clutch pivot but it'* the right length so I can get the bracket welded up while the front end was off.
