    I recall that one day I didn't bleed working on something with a motor. To fast strong, too slow smart. Might need to use that theory on the temp gauge. If you don't get it I'll follow up with the guru but I think it's a violent pull.

    Grew up around the 40's chevs so really appreciate seeing those dash pics. That curve sure kicks the motivation in gear to find a dash like that I can sit behind. Keep those pics coming!

    Finally got the dashboard out. Had to remove the steering gearbox mount bolts. The dash has to rotate up in order to clear everything under it and the steering column was in the way. Tried to do things a bit easy and just remove the pitman arm... nope, not going to happen. Pics below. No rust at all on the dash metal. There’s some surface rust around the vent that’ll need cleanup. Have to get the insulation removed as well as the fire extinguisher bracket. Once all that is removed I can finish getting the firewall cleaned up. After that, time to get serious about paint and greasy, oily dirt removed. I’m hoping I can start painting within the month but that’ll depend on the weather.

    Could your steering wheel be from a CCKW? The truck might have gone through a depot rebuild at some point and the 4 spoke wheel was put on....you know grab one from the pile of parts kind of thing?

    Not sure if it’s a CCKW wheel. If I find a part number, I’ll see what I can find out about it.

    Well you can't even see the back gate, the CONEX has about 4' in front of it, and the doghouse has snow halfway up the roof.

    Nothing done due to the snow. I get migraines from too much light exposure. With all the snow and bright sunny but cold days, it’s brutal going outside. Hopefully the snow will be gone enough for me to get back to work today.

    Finally got out and get some stuff done. Got the fire extinguisher bracket off, dash supports and oil filter assembly. The firewall is pretty nasty so there’s going to be some heavy cleanup before too long. Getting what few pieces left to get out of the way to I can get the sound proofing removed. I’ll be painting over the white as there’s no feasible way of removing the white paint. The rust around the vent is going to require some work. The rust is only on the surface but nows the time to clean up the area. Pics:
