Sorry for posting late status of progress. Kept steering box as this is just a daily and not really something im trying to dump much funds as well as not being able to source the parts in time for fabricator. Agagin sorry for the late status but as always your feedback is much appreciated. Im still learning as I go and do not know much of these swaps so i learn form other's builds and of course searching online.

I think that I liked the old brown better. Had more patina. The new orange is really nice, though. ;)
