Time to go to Macungie 

Got the bumpers painted and mounted, made a filler piece for the top of the front bumper. I made the rear bumper into a junction box for the rear lights, lights all working. Made up a template for the

Anybody have a couple of the wedge shaped chrome collars and retaining nuts for the wiper shaft posts on a B model? Probably the last thing I need to find for this truck. I doubt there are any floating around but it's worth a shot. Punch list for this thing is getting whittled down, relays for the head lights, relay for the power windows so the little lights in the switches don't kill the battery, got the AC working right (I had it overcharged) found the only thing I didn't replace in the front end (draglink) was worn out so replaced that  and centered the steering wheel. Just got to get the wipers finished and I'll have to look for something else to do.

if you got a bit of aluminium round bar and drilled the right size hole and then cut it in half on the correct angle wouldnt this then give you two collars 
Buff them up with in a inch of their life and they would look like chrome to my untrained eye

 

just a thought

Was having an issue with the alternator on this truck, whenever the main electric fan and the AC fan would both be on the belt would start squealing. Single wire alternator that I thought was a 63 amp and the fans together were in the neighborhood of a 50 amp draw. I picked up a 100 amp single wire and a #8 battery cable to run off it and all is well. Looked at the stamping on the side of the old alternator and it said 37 amp, that little sucker really was working hard.
