Installing new inner and outer rockers along with kick panels


December 20th - New crossmember, new fuel tank (90 ohm gauge)

Pics taken the day after I received the motor - December 30, 2010
You can see pics of the motor the day I got it here (December 29,2010)

In the meantime, still doing a ton of work to the cab. Figure it will be ready to paint within a month or so.

Filled the torque converter with fluid before installing. Started at about 4PM, and had it installed by 4:50.

White Racing Engines sent me a CD of the dyno of the motor.
