Rear floor assembly installed.
Custom radiator frame. $580 spent for 4 Skyjacker shocks, a pair of 10 leaf front springs, 2 spring plates, 4 U bolts, a polyurethane bushing kit and a polyurethane body mount kit.
All new brake lines, pedal and master cylinder were installed. New 15 gallon gas tank partially coated with 2 coats of Heculiner will replace the under driver's seat gas tank. All the wiring is being replaced.
The seat frame installed. According to rat rod standards the seat should be plywood and blankets but since I already violated a standard by using colored paint instead of primer for the body I will build a genuine seat.
Painted one piece front end.
New windshield and doors installed. Sides are being fitted.
SS Dauntless drove out of the shed on the 4th of July.
Bestop's Tiger Top is being installed.
Getting closer to the finish line.
CRT Performance HEI distributor.
Proform 100 amp alternator and Optima Redtop battery.
Holley 390 cfm 4 barrel Street Avenger carburetor. FlowKooler high capacity water pump.
Seat upholstery in progress.
I just purchased a 1977 Dana 30 front axle assembly with disk brakes. I have to change gearing and maybe put in a locker before installation.
Tube bumper and 2" receiver hitch. Driving lights for backup lights.
Work begins on the Dana 30 front axle. It will be completely rebuilt with a locker.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or comments. Enter SS Dauntless as the subject so it gets past my spam filter. More later I have to go work on SS Dauntless.

Nice job restoring this one!
The plow is great! I just bought a used Western plow and I am trying to do the same set up. Was hoping you could send some close up pics of the tie in points to frame. Thanks Terrytbeebe528@hotmail.com
Yet another cool project. Great stuff.
Holy crap! I saw the wood thinking it was just a template then as I scroll further it was actually utilized. Turned out nice. Especially compared to the original photos. Brilliant job. 5 stars man, all 5 earned here.
