Lift kit (springs, at least) went on too

Rough country 4" kit. New springs and shocks. This is the second GW kit I got that had one incorrect u-bolt. I called and they sent the right one out that day. RC doesn't have the best product, but their customer service is great.

What is that? Is that water that was trapped in your rear quarter?

Your interior looks great!!!

Yep. Bumped it with a rachet and it started leaking. And thanks! Seats should be done next week.

Wow. There's a drain on each side that needs to be kept clear.

This reminds me of my standard advice. Make sure the drains in the rockers, doors and the behind the kick panel vents are open too. Usually lotsa leaves behind the vents.

Got the new heater core installed. The evaporator I got from Rockauto was wrong...sending it back and going to try one for an 85 model at a local auto parts store.
Rattle canned it black while it was out.

Much time was spent researching and working on getting the original temp sender installed. Ended up pulling a plug on the passenger side head, tapping it (without drilling) with 1/4 NPT, and then drilling out a reducer bushing with a 23/64" big so the sensor would fit. Glad that's behing me

Fuel pump with level sending unit. Hoping this works. If not I may look for another sender and put another hole in the tanks.

Got lucky with the cross member! There was another set of mounting holes in the frame for it that lined up with the 4L60E. The driveline angle is close but may need some tweaking.

OK...things are starting to come together. The A/C is installed. New condenser, evaporator (for an '85 model, the one for an 89 didn't fit) and hoses crimped at Napa. Hopefully everything will gel with the LS compressor.
