It is just rubber strap I ordered off Amazon that is the same width and thickness as the old deteriorated cotton stuff that was on it. I used weatherstrip adhesive to fasten it in place before I installed the tank. Hopefully the adhesive is strong enough.

It's kinda funny when ya think a 45 gallon drum is 11 gallons short of fillin' that tank.

Are you going to drive that museum piece in the mud or build a back up truck we can get dirty? Once this is done you'll be bored. :D

We are finally seeing some things come together. I dropped the ball on getting The Low/High Range decal for around the speedometer, but will get back on that.

The rear window got a new gasket cut and is installed. The upper drip edge will be installed later.

The fall camo is ready on my other project.

I emailed the dash marking pictures from Plowboy to Dave at Delta Team Decals last night. First thing this morning he had this ready and I have ordered a set.

I'll post pictures of them when they arrive. He is calling them the M135 Dash Marking if any of you want to order a set.

I got the decals in from Delta Team Decals and finished my instrument cluster. I am very happy with it. If any of you need the Low/High Range decals or stencils, ask Dave for the M135 Dash Markings.

Let's take your truck on the left.....it's got more gas in it then the other one. Cool website over at Delta so if they're going to be fast and reasonable to deal with, they should get a plug. http://www.deltateamdecals.com/ I'm going a little nuts wanting pictures of it going back together so I know you're sniffing the finish line like a Bloodhound. ......let's hook up the batteries!

I did get new batteries a couple weeks ago and started the truck last weekend after almost 2 years of it sitting there. It started right up and ran great. I expected a little bit of a fight after sitting so long but there was none.

The M923 windshield seals work great. Get them into place and cut the few inches of excess off the top.

1/4 inch round weather strip was glued in above the windshield hinge.

The passenger side windshield is installed. Will work on the driver side later.
