Yeah let me know cause that stuff is so rigid and has no flex what so ever...and its actually wider than the opening of the track that's why I attempted to slide it in from the end...

Wayno, thanks for posting this, I finally got my little NL running again! it was the float! I took the carb apart and cleaned it, still would flood out. Fixed it with some solder per DanielC's advice and it starts and runs!Thank you DanielC, this is going to be my new daily driver!

This is what my truck looks like right now, it took a long time to get here and it is not finished yet.

Another sweet custom king cab!  Nice work Wayno!.  Did you get these back 1/4 windows to roll down?

Yes, they go up and down the whole way, I tried going with electric but there was not enough room front to back for the door setup I had bought for just this purpose, I looked into versions where the motor was on the bottom but the reviews on them were terrible, stuff like they only worked 3 times or did not work out of box, and they were very expensive, so I cut a slot in the inside panel that covered the hole, I made a "S" shaped bracket that connected to the bottom of the window, I welded a stud that stuck out the slot on the bottom of it, then I put a washer and wingnut on the stud, I slide the wingwindow to the position I want it and tighten the wingnut and there it stays, simple works.

I also tried a modified window crank mechanism, but it only worked till about half way down, and the window fell off of it a few times, so I gave up on that setup.

I like simple Wayno.  Wing nuts are cheap.

Well the box was painted today, but I made a few run lines, so I will sand the run lines tomorrow and paint the sides again.

This is where I am now, I put side trim on the box sides, it's kinda wet outside so garage photos will have to do.

This is what it looks like today other than putting 521 type rims on it as the ones in the photos hit the front driver side fender.
