    No target date at this time, I have an injured back and Im having some procedures done, probably will be a month or so before I can get to it. But I will continue to dismantle my 76. Here is a pic of the chassis sitting in my garage.

    Got the interior gutted and wiring removed. Started pulling fenders and hood off. Cab will be coming off shortly. Then I'll set the chassis on the truck to figure out where I want to locate it.

    I ordered 4 more 1 1/4 bungs for my 4 link from BTF, as well as a 14 bolt axle truss.

    On the way home Im picking up the 2 in .250 wall DOM for my link arms and 4 more 2.5in johnny joints from john at Currie.

    Here is a picture of an older model truss on a truck

    And here is a computer image of the newer style one.
