This is a site built by a buddy of mine (StudioRhoad.com) to document the progress of my project 620 build that Iím doing. I hope I have the patience to continue adding and updating as I move further along with the project. I will also be blogging about general stuff in my life as I experience them. Feel free to check out my About page for more info and background.

Transmission tunnel taking shape.

Nothing real new. I’ve been working on this thing but the footings on the cage took quite a while because I wanted them to be solid but yet removable incase I ever need to remove the cab at some point.

I completed the tunnel yesterday and today I have to pop the cab up one more time to finish off some welding on the bottom of the cage before I can install the dash bar and strut tower cage supports.
Then its steering column, pedals, door bars, seats, fuel cell, truck bed, more cage in the bed, rad and intercooler support, piping, etc,. All in that order.

Tranny tunnel and roll cage

Ok, I havent posted anything in a bit so I figured I would put up some more stuff.

Time to make the firewall and tunnel
Image

Image

Image

remembered that I needed to make the tranny mount and do the exhaust before finishing the firewall and tunnel.
Image

Image

Image

Added one more x-frame for support and was able to run the exhaust over that and within the frame rails to keep it from scraping.

My brother came into town last weekend to help me with the cage since he’s built several and I’ve built none.
Image

We drilled holes in the floor so we could drop the cage down and weld and paint w/o having to mess up any thing.

The cage isn’t 100% yet. We had to stop because we ran out of time and I need to see where the steering column is going to be and also the pedals before installing the dash bar.
