Over the past few months -
Got the motor rebuilt.
Got the seat rebuilt.
Picked up all the interior plastics (save for the dash!) to clean and paint Navy Blue to contrast nicely with the Pacific Blue seat.
Installed brand new seat belts.
Installed subwoofer behind the driver's seat back.
Added wiring for an autodim mirror and a 2-port USB power source, to go above the headliner.
Oh, got the headliner recovered (nephew started an auto upholstery shop).
Had to get the column fixed AGAIN - this time the wiper switch broke (which on the 1991 and earlier Dakotas, the wiper switch has a cam path on the back, which triggers the cam to the separate turn signal/hazard switch. Said cam path broke due to age.)
And as I type this, I'm about to go out and curse in still another language as I get that column back in so I can get my truck back!
