I started welding in the tunnel arches today and got the new tunnel fitted. This week we'll weld that up and get this phase finished!

I did some reassembly today so I can start working on door gaps, etc. Hopefully the air management system will go in next week.

Over the last few days I have been framing out the new trunk floor and the '65 Mustang gas tank. Pics:

I was making good headway on the trunk floor this morning and then ran low on argon Co2 and OUT of welding wire at the SAME time. I guess it wasn't meant to be. Other places to be now, so I guess I'll call it a day.

Not today for the air system install, after all... I cut my day short, but it's for a good cause. I did button up the floor, shorten the filler tube, welded on a vent tube from the oem '50 filler, mounted the tank to the platform, and tried a few set ups with the compressors.

I finally started actually installing the air management today. It's a much slower process than I imagined. It seems like the decisions you have to make are harder than the physical work on this phase. I figure about 4-5 more days until it's done:
Mon - Continue Wiring and Rear Plumbing
Tues - Front Plumbing, have to remove front wheels,calipers, discs, and separate spindle to open the control arms to lower the bag plate/rod to access and install new bag fittings.
Wed - switch back to one wire alternator, new 105 amp, fabricate bracket
Thurs - Finish fuel line to gas tank, paint touch ups, bolt down tank, bolt down air platform.
Fri - Test Drive?

Thanks! Today I had lots of progress, still not done. I painted and seam sealed the trunk, installed the gas tank and air rack, trimmed all the wires and hoses, and cleaned up the routing and harness down the middle. I still need to lengthen the power wires, pass through the firewall, install the new alternator, mount the relays, and run a power wire back to the aux terminal on the ignition switch. We're getting close! I hope to drive it tomorrow or Saturday!

Thanks guys! We've run into a small issue; nothing bad. The brakes were fine...until I reinstalled the wiring harness and the BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH. Guess what happened? Being that the body is on a new frame, the brake light switch throws the dual master cylinder adjustment rod out of whack a little bit, and it's not releasing pressure! And, now that the car is a lowrider, guess what I can't reach...the adjustment nut! Lol, it will be fine. I will likely have it towed to my mechanic where he can put it on a lift and reach the adjuster. Ah, the challenges we face!

Otherwise, the car handles pretty well and I am getting a feel for the air ride suspension. I've spent a lot of time figuring out my clearance and the do's and don'ts of air ride travel. Anywhere we drive in traffic, I plan to have the car at ride height. If I'm going super slow in our subdivision (lots of children out playing, so we always drive slowly in all of our cars!) I can cruise with the bags at 50 psi, which leaves about 2 inches of ground clearance. My car buddies in the neighborhood (including my friend on the sherrif's dept. that originally located my 1st timer in a field outside a nearby town!) have seen me test driving and say the car looks great! Let the real fun begin!
