i like the idea of the plexi cover but since you use the truck what about a lexan floor
it would be cool, but it's just not me. i like to keep the exterior pretty origional looking. only thing i shaved was the tailgate and bumper. i'm not one for overdoing it.
my notch i have now matches the origional bed lines but i might make it so it's removable.
front still doesn't lay due to i still run my inner fenders. but it'll go soon.
figuring out the brackets on the axle was a bitch, but they are all tacked. tomorrow i'll finish welding them up, than try to figure my pinion.
Yeah i know there are plenty of threads on here that will tell you how to set the pinion, if i remember correctly, all u need is an angle finder from the local hardware store and just set it up at +/- 5* at ride height.
no new pics. just been cleaning the frame and rearend. got the rearend welded up and painted last night. backhalfs all torn down for powdercoat and paint. hopefully be back together tomorrow or saturday. doubt i'll get to the plumbing yet. still don't know where the airtank is going.
it's called "black chrome"
i thought it would be blacker?
more of a charcoal gray, but i still think it looks really sweet.
got the mounts for my rear bed bolts on
all primered up
my axle is welded up, painted, bushings and grease fittings installed, and lsoh's rear disc's on. anybody else with these brakes? my brake hose is pressed against my housing pretty hard. wasn't sure if that was normal.
went a little overkill on the paint for the rearend. whole lot of buildup and runs. **** it, rust preventative right??
looks good the powder coat looks like the same color im using when do you plan on having it back on the road
i need to get some grade 8 bolts and the closest place open on sunday is like 10 miles away. probably just wait til monday and drive 10 seconds up the road for them. sometime this week though. i'll be driving without a bed for a little until i finish up the plumbing.
Looking good real good like where you plan on sticking the compressers but will they be OK getting wet if you need a slash shiels get vinyl showerpan liner from home depot I can post a pic of what I used it to shield my relays
it's directly behind the bumper so i don't think anything would splash on it. but i still may run an aluminum deflector. and my relay is mounted right under the headlight (you can see it) behind the crossbar of the grill.
