I'm so happy to hear it run. Now I just need to figure out how I can finish it with one hand. Have a rotator cuff issue that I see a surgeon for today.
Might take a bit to finish all the little stuff that's left.

Have about 1" left to have exhaust together? (fabbed-not yet welded)
Lots of cutting and blue masking tape.
Have new steering rack in but still thinking about how to center everything to get close to bolt up tie rod ends. Suggestions welcome.
It only needs to be close enough to drive onto truck to get a real alignment.

Also picked up newer Bertone wheels for it.

Exhaust is really close to being 100% I just had to hear it with the muffler in place. Ran poorly and leaked coolant. Have to figure out where its leaking from. I have hope its from the front even though it drips off the starter.
Be checking soon. (just read up on a Ford Explorer forum)
I have a buddy who had issues with his injectors after sitting a short while.
So depending on what I find with my coolant leak and if it passes a compression test. I will then re clean the injectors and cross my fingers that I will finally be able to drive the silly thing.

Pretty welds huh? LOL

Hood is now painted. Many items yet to finish. However we did take it to a local Volvo show 2 years in a row.
