Bob, I take no credit for the horns orientation. There are as they were removed from the f150. The 1st pic is an Eastwood metal saw. They were on sale last week so I thought I would see if it was better than cut off blades. Smile The next are of a seat mount and a seat. Before you suffer from vomitus maximus, remember that I'm cleaning out all the left over stuff. The seats were given to me. They have the matching upholstery also.

love the seats ... really ! I think if you could get some kind of memory foam or some type of gel pads under the upholstery they might be quite comfortable . I used to have a pattern for the upholstery covers for those seats somewhere , long gone now .

1st item completed today: 2nd seat mount finished. Pay no attention to the assortment of bolts. Smile The seats had flat strap on them. I put them in the mill and equalized the bolt spacings. The rest is cut and weld. It took 3 hours for each of those. I'm surprised that it took that long. Next up is fabbing dies for the bead roller for the radiator tubes.

I'm impressed with the volume and quality of your work . You don't have to time yourself too. How are you coming with that bundle of wires? Are you going to use the dash and instruments from the truck too? GPster

GPster, thank you for the compliment. The wiring is waiting until the mess of heat shrink splices I ordered arrive. I will be mounting the f150 gauge cluster into the 49 dash.
Today's stopping point: 1st pic is on the 2nd version of bead roller dies for the radiator tubing. None of which has worked so far. The tubing is 16 gauge and the bender can't do it. I modded the dies 3 times and clamped braces to my roller which has been modded already. Still no success. Back to the drawing board. Smile I moved on to the exhaust. C.K., I pirated the O2 bung and 1 sensor from the mustang leftovers. Smile The last pic is a generalization of how I'm planning to run the exhaust under the frame. I think 3 pie cuts will send the mufflers back under the cab on the outside of the frame rail but under the cab hiding under the overhand of the cab.

You do accomplish an alarming amount of work when you work! Smile

Better luck with the exhaust than the hose ends and I was wondering about exhaust and the exits. I like a tasteful side exit. I dig the hoses. We made beads in a 16 gauge bed floor once. Could you support the "hose pipe" with a ring of pipe that barely slips over then press or whack a hitch ball down it, then support it on the inside with pipe that slips in, and use another ring of the larger pipe to crimp that into what you want? Then cut the lower ring of pipe off. The first end could just slip off if done before bending. Just thinking out loud and Frank or somebody here probably knows the simple way. But there are tools for that, eh? I see no sin in making the hose ends in two halves then welding on, all hidden by hose and clamp. I know your affection for grinding, so...

Keep up the good stuff but simmer down and pace yourself. Do you have a personal goal on timeframe for "ol' Cleanout"?

About the hose ends . Could you not just roll a metal ring and but weld it to the end of the pipe ? you might luck out and find a metal ring the right size at a hobby store or a sewing material shop . Come to think of it I think the ones I have came from a place that sold tack for horses .

I had seats like yours in my Anglia . I made my seat risers out of aluminum . Bent flanges to the inside at top and bottom so the fasteners were out of sight.

You mite try the modified wire connector crimp pliers I used on exhaust tubes to create a bead for radiator water hose.

Maybe you could make another set of dies that are only half the shape and do your forming in stages ? GPster

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I'm moving on to exhaust while thinking about what I have to make the beads in my shop.
The left side is mostly complete except for a hanger and clamping or welding to the header extension. There is no room for a muffler. In between the cab mounts and braces, there needs to be about another inch.

Ok, this will be the last update today. Smile The pics are of the right side exhaust. Once again needs hangers and clamped or welded to the header ext. The next item is the 1st start up. It has no exhaust gaskets so there's about 8 leaks. My plan was to make sure it ran before dissecting the harness. I pulled the fan belt because there's no coolant yet. It has good oil pressure and that's about all I know so far. Smile Have a Pepsi Have a Pepsi

There will be another video as soon as youtube is done with their part. It didn't sound right the 1st time I cranked it over. I thought maybe my small cap conversion was the problem. I installed the original cap and looked on the internet for a firing order diagram. Found a hood sticker and put the wires in. Turned out to be the wrong one. The next video is of the correct firing order. The 1st wiring on my part was correct. It hasn't had time to do a heat cycle to program the ecu at this point. Smile

Don't know if this is the type of bead you are looking for. Made this one on a piece of exhaust tubing to use as a gas filler line with gas hose. A little more time with the die would have given a smoother appearance. Works great with no leaks.



The tool I used was made from a old pair of vice grips with a male and female die welded to the jaws to form the bead and include a stop to insure even spacing from the end of the tube. Just work your way around the tube a couple of times to get the desired bead and smoothness.



Sorry about the size of the images, having a little trouble posting pictures here.

KB, I asked Mike about the hoses and I thought his idea was simple and effective... wrap wire around the pipe and TIG it in spots. Idea

Thanks for the suggestions on the beads. I'm looking at the options to see if I can adapt something to a press or some hydraulic tool that I have.
Tonights mission was to have way less exhaust leaks. I connected a ground that I didn't think was real important. Now the idle air control and the fuel gauge works. Smile I have a vacuum hose connected to the bap sensor so most of the richness is gone. The only exhaust leaks left are where the header extension connects to the under frame pipes. The 12 point bolt order arrived. Smile
