The ARBs are suppose to operate with something like 80-100 psi. More pressure = faster engagement. The volume is small.

Haven't decided on a compressor. I've got a york stashed away for future use. I'll probably start with filling at home and carry a small 12v with on the trail.

Do a search on Pirate those Co2 bottles will engage and disengauge your ARB a ton of times before you need a refill.

Just carry a little 12V tire pump that way you can refill that deuce airtank on the trail if necessary.

Made the top for the fuel tank. Still need to finish welding the stiffeners, put on filler neck, vent port and cut a hole for a fuel gauge. I hope to mount the air tank(s) to the fuel tank between the tank and cab. Gotta check measurements...

More pressure = faster engagement... also = blown seals!

Well I put $408 into parts for the 203/205 and now the guys phone doesn't take messages and he doesn't answer PMs (I've been trying for almost 3 weeks). I guess it's time for small claims court.

Looks good Scott.
I lost your number when I switched phones. Give me a call when you have time. I may have some more springs depending on what you need.

Thanks Greg! I need some spring options. I put stock 5500# F350 springs under the rear and they are way too tall, not to mention stiff I'm putting up some mail boxes over on Falk Fri & Sat. You gonna be around in the aft/eve I'll swing by to BS.

I've been slacking on updates. Someone asked so...

Nothing very exciting. Cab mounted for the last time, I hope. Seats mounted, probably not the last time. Front and rear drivelines made, still need new u-joints before final install. Working on a design for hydraulic pump mount and trying to fit four shifters within reach of the driver w/o moving anything but the right arm.

Figured out I'll probably need hydroboost to run the F550 calipers on the rear so removed the brake petals to start over.

Got some pics on the phone but gotta dl & ul & post...

This is gonna sound stupid but it really works. Get the cheap rope lights and wrap them around the frame of your truck, plug it in and the whole bottom of the vehicle lights up for wiring, suspension work, whatever. I wouldn't do it if I was welding on the vehicle, but they last forever. If you blow a few bulbs it doesn't matter and i gets light just about everywhere.

Finally some updates. Been bad about taking pics. Been wanting to wait till things looked better, painted etc... ah well it's a work in progress...

The front clip. Cutting the hood was a chore and I missed the mark on the front edges. They needed to turn back out after the bend. Need to straighten the light on the drivers side.



Mounted the rad out back and began running plumbing. Took a few tries but I got the numbers figured on making 90s with 1.5" exhaust tubing w/o kinking. For those interested make 8* bends on 3" spacing. That and I modified the pipe dies to fit the tubing better



The rear seat mounted and pockets for batteries underneath. Came from my blazer. Front legs are 4x4x.125 tube w/speed holes. May have to add some gussets for side to side strength but seems solid as is. The arm rests will be removed.







Started on the steering valve mount. It's mostly done but I forgot to take a pic before putting it in the acid bath.






Got some other things done but haven't taken pics. Mounted master cylinders, roughed in brake lines, steering column roughed in, need a cheap 1" id hiem to finsh, cut out holes for gauges and cut in a hinged panel for dash switches.
