Here is todays progress.
The cab is bolted to the frame, at least temporarily.


Next, the temporary cross bracing in the cab can be removed. Then more tubing to cab connections and the steering column install

Hmmm. That brake pedal looks like the type I ran in my 'Buick powered Ford coupe back in the proverbial "Day."

Thanks. The space isn't bad. I mocked up the seat and floor early on and it seemed spacious enough. I started welding in the center floor section today and plan to post some photos with the seat in place with me in it. It may also be that I am just used to tight quarters!

I almost bought a 360 van back in 2000... sure wish I had done it. I was going to swap in a VW drivetrain.

yeah, i think you've just gotten used to it. at first i thought you might be a midget or something but i didn't wanna say it.

road tripping in my stock single cab feels kinda tight on space so i was just wondering what it was gonna be like sectioned.

awesome work on the build though, keep the pics coming so there is fun stuff for lurkers to look at.

Thanks! I tacked in the center section of the floor today and put the seat frame back in. It was actually quite comfortable! I did reposition the stock seat mounts. I was able to slide the seat base back a bit and make the seat back more upright. I wasn't happy with the most upright stock position. It felt like I was leaning back too much. It did also give my more leg room.



Several people have asked about the leg room so I also made a short youtube video which I plan to post later today.

Drivers side floor is finished and welded in.



I was able to drop this side down a bit and give myself even more leg room
