    Have a lot to do so I bought the 12 point roll cage and rev. shifter with trans. brake switch. That's already here so I need to pick out a good seat.

    Need to do some reading first.

    Thanks we will be done next week on another truck then it's time to start mine. I have already stripped the interior next will be all the suspension and complete drivetrain will come off.




    put my Toyota seat for transporting.





    This is where I'm having my TH400 built with fully manual rev. shift valve body with trans. brake 700+hp hardened with 3500 stall converter.



    Bought my buddy who's helping to do this build for free a Bead Roller for the alum. dash and side panels hes going to fab. for me.




    This is what the dash will look like when done.




    My buddies shop it's ready to roll!!!!

    I'm looking at the same seat just waiting till I need it. I want to get the motor to the dyno shop to see what we really got in that motor. I think the HP and Torque should be two lines almost touching and flat as a board around 6000rpm. I'm just not sure how far we should push it even though I know it's built solid.
