    The text was about the truck in general. I swept the bed of the truck, and started cleaning the cab.
    Ok , I thought it might be but I thought you hadn’t started opening it up. I’ve never seen anything quite like it before.

    I have to decide what I am going to do with the lighting before it gets a thread. I figure I can just mix it in here. Not alot yet. Next week I hope to get the heads cleaned up and the intake back on. I need to get a new PCV and the rubber grommet that it goes I guess it needs one of those metal screens?

    Ah.. I see. I was trying to say nobody will notice except you. I wouldn't have known. Turbos tend to end up where they fit....

    I am proud of my bracket, but very few numbers and no calculations where used in the making. So I would call it custom fabrication! I have been around Dan too much so I am going to put a gusset or 3 on it just incase I ever want to stand on it or use it to pull the motor.

    With the shape / angles I used the trim fit, trim fit, trim fit, tack, cut, adjust, tack, trim, weld method. It's not square, it bothers me but not enough to cut it out and adjust it.

    Got the lower off the gaskets had been replaced before, they were bad. Pressure washed the intake.
    Made a bracket to mount the turbo where the power steering oumpwould normally go.
