    Thank's for the kind words Mike! These arrived this week - new 14 circuit body harness from KwikWire and what will become my new high-beams (after some 3M treatment).

    Road trip with my brother this weekend to grab some doors from a 69. primary rust free they come with a little bit of swag: (driver door has some small dents but also features a 9mm/38 hole from back in the day) Guy had a great story about his project truck in the garage. It was his uncles / then his dads and then he sold it a decade ago. He tracked it down online in Portland - talked to the woman who owned it and bought it for more than he sold it for but finally has it back in the family. Nice guy

    Prob is I'm not starting with a clean harness to start with and it has a couple electrical issues, so I rather pull an entire new harness and update the entire vehicle at the same time + toss in some extras like a kill switch / easy room to expand. As far as swaps goes I am leaning towards the Beams 3SGE + boost down the line. I will be able to get a better idea though this winter as I pull the truck over to a garage and start going though it with my brother. It was running + driving just fine - then had a couple starter issues traced back to lose / corroded battery lines. Then more has unfolded - so rather than just trace though what it could be I rather pull the motor / sell the tranny / start on the swap to make it more reliable anyway.

    Definitely not a 720 frame as the previous owner had to make custom mounts for the 720 engine to mount with the suspension. Should be able to make some more sense of it soon as it appears the 720's engine has given up the ghost and the swap will be happening sooner than expected. ots of parts on the way - but the next one is a full aftermarket wiring harness: https://kwikwire.com/14-circuit-wire-harness/

    Yes, it uses the Front Disks from the donor truck in the front. I will take some pictures next time I work on it.

    No pictures of the previous work, only what was in the original listing for the truck.

    It also has the front suspension and disc brakes from a 720 - 1 leaf removed from the rear leafs - and stock stoppers in the back.

    Nope, Orig frame. The guy did make custom mounts for it though.

    Thanks! The truck came with a Z24 + the upgraded front suspension. I plan on replacing all of the wiring in the truck, so that should make it a bit easier to push the power I need to actually be able to see out of the truck lol

    You will enjoy this then here is the listing pics Thanks, I have been lurking for some time, saving lots of pictures and chomping at the bit for a while to get started on my own project. Progress over the past 2 weeks since picking it up: factory mirror is cracked down the middle so I removed it and went hotrod (keeping all factory pieces for now) I have new window gaskets already as she leaks badly on the passenger side - so I am also looking into doing my own door panels at some point. (CRX seats included) Got some ellipsoid headlights. And my Brother is teaching me to weld Fortunately he does metal fab for a living and can clean up my work: She's developed a bit of a staring prob so I am going to have to dig into the electrical with him and I'm weighing just purchasing a kwikwire 14 circut harness and not worrying about the gremlins. Sticker for the namesake:
