today did a bunch of the little stuff, got the exhaust fixed, had to cut the cat out cause of the transfercase. ran all the brake lines today and bled the brakes tore out all the a/c garbage along with whatever else looks like it was taking up space under the hood. also made a drop section for the crossmember to clear the driveshaft, ill put that in at work.
this thing has been sitting for about 2 months, and one crank it fired right up and ran. i guess thats good but i never seen any fuel injection cars/truck that would fire up after one crank, usually they go after 4 or 5. but whatever
heres some pics, nothing really major, just brake line routing and the engine.
sadly i actually did something right for once, got a set of stainless steel braided brake lines for up front, figured its safer and easier then trying to rig up some kinda lowered bracket to use the stock rubber lines
my artistic mounting of the rear brake lines, kinda sucks when you cant get the exact length metal lines
nothing special here
so alls im waiting on now is the drag link rod to connect the steering box to the axle and itll be driveable
