Still have the rear diffuser I'd like to get done this winter, eventually a carbon fiber hood and full weld in cage. But aside from a few things yeah, motor and turbo are basically the final step.

New storage/transport tires and wheels. VMR V705 18X9.5 et45. They tuck pretty hard but will work just fine for their purpose.

Guess I did more than I remembered lol. Also found another way to get more weight out of the car, ditch the passenger seat lol.



Picked up a BFI shift knob and Alcantara/carbon fiber manual surround.





And remounted my water meth tank, I can literally move the whole car with my bracket setup lol.

You should really do an aftermarket steering wheel, that would save a surprisingly large amount of weight. Did you already take the airbag out of the dash?

It's on my eventual list of things to do, but money is pretty tight right now. I've removed all the airbags except the steering wheel bag. Trying to figure out how to remove the bag but keep the center.

AND RED!!! Smart ass... lol.

It's a Ford, of course its rusty lol. Sitting at 430k miles currently, just shy of my 83 K20 monster truck. The 7.3 are damn near bullet proof and since I'm a diesel tech for a living I dont have any issues working on it.

Oh dude, trust me all my friends are already beating that dead horse lmao.

Well went and picked the van up last night and I'm pleasantly surprised with it. In better shape than I was expecting. Drive 45min home with zero issues. Obviously at 465k miles she needs some work but overall I'm very happy.
