Jim the 1969 ute went through some work over the last week, installed the overhauled brake master cylinder, had to drill the holes into the new front chassis leg and the brake line holes in the chassis, then installed the brake master cylinder return spring bracket.
Repaired and replaced both front suspension including new rubbers, had a hell of a time trying to get the torsion bars set as per the manual to 5 5/8", still not happy so more adjustment needed.
Replaced all brake pipes, brake cylinders and shoes.
Started to install the new wiring loom and hoping all of the tagging of the old one I removed will help. Just a quick winge😣 why dont they give you the wiring diagram included when you buy a $ 630 wiring loom#$%^&* now I have to study the manual and work out which one to use. Yep its a 1960 with factory fitted blinkers. The head aches will start under the dash.
Drained the rear axle, and replacing the bearings and oil seals is next, then start to put all the engine bay gear in, wiper motor etc.
Still cant work out the photo thing 🤔

The wiring might seem daunting but it will all fall into place once you have it routed through the body. There's not too much behind the dash to go wrong & the colour coding should be correct on the new loom.
What sort of indicators did your ute come with? Flashing brake lights I assume.
