May be because these are off an iphone. I'm Not a tech geek, so I don't know much about that.

Can is blasted, got the fenders and doors yet to go...

Yes he's on a roll. This all going fast...But we all know it slows down with the details.

Tommy Woods driveshaft shipped today.

I figure it will be end of April at the earliest. Lots to do yet...

Looking good! That engine sits that far back from the front tires? I know its under the cab, but it seems like it halfway to the rear end!

Tom, it's behind the cab. True mid-engine diesel hauler. Rear driveshaft was built to 10 inches by Tom Woods.
Engine is now torn down and steam cleaned. Leaving tomorrow to the builder / guru. New firerings, bearings etc. Getting ready for the horsepower.
