    Like Peter i like to build the engine first, just spent 4 night shifts building & painting.
    Once installed I will start the plumbing.

    The stand came from my last truck build it's to keep it safe while building the rest.

    Rear axle's primed chassis finished, not decided what color to paint the axles yet might paint them the same color as the truck.
    Front axle & steering finished May do the same as the axle's
