First, I removed the dash so I could get it all assembled and wired and ready to be put back in place. But I was concerned about the steering column being bent by someone pulling on it; more support was needed:
|Not pretty, but it works well.|
I also topped off the fluids in the differential, the power steering system, and the transmission. I figured it was better to do it now than to forget to fill one once I had things ready to start and possibly damage things.
