    Am I reading that Dakota speedo shows 415,000 + kilometres on it? About what does the equate to in miles? I'm surprised the wheels went around that many times and still function!
    I doubt you will be able to change the odometer, most governments don't want people messing with odometer readings and I suspect you may end up destroying it trying to change it. Sorry, Gene

      Hey everyone, quick update. Dad stayed out of the shop for a few days so I could get in and work. We will be switching off like this for the next bit.

      Downpipe I ordered came in but it was the wrong size.

      Dad finished the speedometer and it looks mint.

      I got the pedal assembly completed and the transmission hooked up properly(ish)

        Here is an update. COVID has made work crazy since we make medical devices and I have been essentially working 7 days a week since March, hope everyone is staying well.

        I found the stock headlights from my wifes Jeep Wrangler when we upgraded them, I think these have maybe 30,000KM on them and they are the correct size.

        Dad got more body work done. Cab corners have been cleaned up and painted to look old again.

        Cut the cross member to make room for the radiator and installed a Channel with a 1/4" wall to put structure back in.

        I bought a new radiator but needed to modify it. I am not sure if there will be enough cooling so I also bought a new water temp gauge which is not pictures or installed.

        Bought and installed a filter that fits better. The one I had before was rubbing against the alternator.

        In the next month I should have the radiator finished and plumed and the inter cooler installed.

        Cheers
