Used some of the sheet steel left over and made a cover for where the stock heater blower use to be. Mounted the Robb MC power surge there instead. Just need to clean up the cover and paint it.

Also fabricated a bracket from angle iron for a generic radiator overflow container. Thanks to @ToyotaMatt for the mounting hardware.

Then marveled at the previous owners sweet electrical skills.

Yeah it appears the PO was a master electrician. I saw your offering. I have commitment issues at anything over $25.

Thanks. Our 71 needs the same thing you did. Split the springs paint and rebuild. Do the shackles give a slight lift?

The shackles I replaced were pretty beat as well as the bushings. So with that said I am not sure. I did gain some slight height, but I feel like it came from everything tightening up on the ends and center.
