Truck is almost done!!! (besides body and paint)
Exhaust is finished. Ran 3" Magnaflow mufflers right off the headers and have a turn down right after the muffler. I'm eventually going to run side pipes out in front of the rear tires, but this is good enough for now. Sucker is almost too darn loud. Not going to be able to sneak around anywhere
Installed a Lokar kickdown cable, and a B&M megashifter. Was my first time with both of these products, and I can say I'm impressed. Using the Lokar cable was a heck of a lot simpler than trying to mess around and get clearance for a kickdown rod off the carb, and the megashifter was the same deal. Also looks pretty cool in the truck.
Also go the rad in. Used a rad from my 97 Concorde. Had to modify the core support a good deal, but it fits. Not sure yet if it will adaquately cool the truck but it should. Running both the stock electric fans from the Concorde.
Lastly got most of the exterior back together. Had quite a bit of wiring to do to get lights back on the truck, but it's almost done. Just need to inner fenders put in (need to find a set first) and touch up a bit or wiring for water temp, egt, and the neutral safety switch and back up light switch. Should also get an oil pressure gauge to get rid of my pop bottle catch can
Pics of progress (not much to see)

Clearance (yeah right) to electric fans
