My favorite horns in all aspects have always been Grovers... got them on my CF...

These are the “Emergency”version for fire trucks. They should be loud!.

Over the life of this cab model, I don’t think they ever deleted a single hole or attachment. So many unused holes, the old radiator support rod holes are still there for an LJ radiator, plus the bigger ones for the B radiator. A piece of angle iron added, I think that’s to support the big heater on the inside. A lot will get reused, but man there’s a lot. I guess if you bought it for an earlier truck, as a replacement, it would all still fit no matter the year.

Had a ton of holes in my B-75 but I think you still win the prize! 

Quite a few holes got used and a bunch got filled.

It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.

Fantastic work. You’re going to enjoy the heck out of that truck when it’s rolling soon.!

The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by the people who vote for a living.

The government can only "give" someone what they first take from another.

Final patches on the lower windshield pillars installed and cleaned up the gutters. Test fit the doors and all is well with no rubbing. Obviously, I need to tweak a lot of little stuff. Looking at my last couple of posts, it doesn’t look like a lot of progress. But, there was, as it was all the hard stuff that shows. I am amazed I brought this cab back and now my big headache  is behind me!!

 

I agree on the progress...sometimes I'll spend hours on something and when you sit back and look at it, it doesn't look as hard as it actually was!

Or even just don't see any notable difference between the before and after.
