I spent a couple of hrs in the shop today.
Was able to bend around on the power steering lines enough to clear the bottom of the radiator and fan shroud. Not a problem now. Kinda hard to tell in the pics but it will never rub as long as I don't crunch some thing.

Then I got the condenser mounted in the grill. Just bent up some 18 ga steel for mounting brackets and painted black. It's a pretty tight area to put a condenser in. Still need to close in around the penetrations for the tubing and figure out how to get access to make the hose connections.
Going to need a couple of extension tubes to accomplish that feat behind the extended mounting flange for the over sized radiator. I know what I need, I just need to find a source, probably Classic Auto Air.

More manyana.

Life has been rough lately. I haven't been in the posting frame of mind but I have been getting some done on this.
People sick, people died, identity theft,
Insurance company, lawyers and on and on.
Hopefully I can get out of this funk and back in the groove.

A few pics. Got the tubes on the condenser and the front end on.

The over flow tank was in the way of the grill brace so I went around it. They both need to be there so.........

Then the bottom radiator hose had the same issue with the serpentine belt. Same solution. Just go around it.

Top radiator hose with an additional temp sending unit. I needed one for temp gauge, one for the fuel injection ecu, and one for the electric fan. What a PITA!

Sorry to hear about the hard times, Pops. Hopefully things are looking up for you!

Your work and the truck are looking great!

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

Yeah, sorry to hear about life not being so nice. Sometimes I find it relaxing to go out in the shop and beat your head against something metal. Truck is looking good by the way
