so with the truck in paint .. I need to get a gate built . the original one was steel , and I don't want that , it's gonna rust eventually .. so started cutting the hinges and gutting the inner ... also going with a little different , haven't posted this before , but I also build a smooth gate that has the handle moved to the inside .. (mock up on the old gate )
also .. never done this before , and I have never seen it done ? but I'm going to try "clean up" and powder coat a throttle body so I tor it apart , and got it all cleaned up . I needed to first make sure I could secure the butterfly plate , and done .. so , lets see where this goes

TREKKER PARTS 86 "shop truck" lots of fiber parts . 84 2WD "hotrod" widebody 1GZ V12 83 Trekker custom , S/C 3.4L 82 Limited Edition MIRAGE # plated 001 of 500 83 limited Edition MOJAVE # plated 465 of 500
so with that , I needed to get a few more pieces done ..
started stripping the firewall brake and clutch lines
cleaned up the clamps and got some powder on them , as well as the hood lock , and the fuel line clips .
also ... I'm going to try something I have never done before ... so wish me luck I parted out an original 2WD Mojave a couple years back , and I kept the leather wrapped steering wheel . leather is not in good shape , so I'm going to re-wrap it .
