Was going to build a custom full console, but still wanted it to look like a old truck .. Thought that the console was not the look I was after ..

Made up the weld-in crack spacer ..
Looks to fit the need ..

Started in on installing the power cowl vent motor ..

Wasn't intending doing power on the cowl vent ..
After I made up the A/C Pod and did a test fit seen a problem ..
The Pod was in the way of working the factory cowl vent handle ..
Could have made it work by making up a S handle to replace the stock one, but that may of been somewhat off the wall and looked funky ..

Watson's Streetworks ( www.watsons-streetworks.com ) had the cure ..

Most likely with having A/C on line the cowl vent won't be seeing much action ..
Since the keyless door locks remote fob has a few unused channels, could hook the vent up to work by remote control ..

.. That would freak-out some folks !! Lol

Been giving some thought on the new aftermarket wiring harness ..
Bought this critter a while back for running the wires though the firewall ..

After some more thought went down, it's not going to work for me ..
The truck is going to have a world of wires going though the wall ..
There's the common wires for the motor and all the lights, this would work well for them ..
But, I have the wires for the trans stand-alone controller and trailer electric brakes plus a few others that will be seeing the wall ...

New game plan is in the works ..

This one should allow room for all the wires ..

I gave the vent a slight tilt ..
More cracks to be filled ..

Eek ... (Maybe I should rephrase that ?)

Done with the cracks ..
Left a rolled edge where the Pod meets up with the dash ..
Thinking that would be a better look than butt to butt ..
