Hydroboost. I'm installing mine as well, but I either misplaced two fittings or forgot to order them. Stainless braided line here as well, much better looking than the factory setups.

Re: DaGreenMonster is back and getting V8'd

lol thanks for all the bumps guys hahaha

Got all my fittings last nite from Summit. Stainless braided line is awesome, cant wait to install it. I started to clean up the hydroboost unit, degreased it and started throwing down some paint on it.

Quick question, I was going to use my stock 97 master clyinder but the bore size is too big for the hydroboost unit. I have a newer master, it looks like a 98+ unit, and it bolts right up but the bore is actually a little smaller than the diameter on the hydroboost. Will this cause any problems?

Re: DaGreenMonster is back and getting V8'd

Are those headers going to work with the body drop? I know I was really tight on space with my sbc swap, but I also wanted to keep the stock hood.

Rendering I just had done. Still up in the air about the flames, really wanted to get a feel for how flames would look on the truck. We will see if they stay or not

Re: DaGreenMonster is back and getting V8'd

Carlisle All Truck Nats are in a couple weeks and I have yet to get my truck on the road. This past weekend I changed the fluids, put the wheels and grille on, and started cleaning her up. motor swap will be done after the Disturbed Image show in a couple months

Re: DaGreenMonster is back and getting V8'd

looks like its just time to strap the boots on and kick some ass sir. im loving watching this thread develop. i am not a huge fan of the flames but maybe its just the style the rendering was done. im sure theyll be done classy though.

Re: DaGreenMonster is back and getting V8'd

flames. YES

I've had this picture of this S10 from <ST> for a few years after it hit print. This style of positive / negative will be the route I go (same colors with a bit added) on the sonoma.

i think something like this would look absolutely killer.

I LOVE the shotgun scoop. I will one day have something with one of those poking out the hood, one of my favorite random pieces ever.

The flames were a rough sketch. I actually hand drew the flames on the picture and then sent the picture to AJ at No Life Designs to complete the rendering. So the flames you see are drawn on by me hahaha

Dropped thats pretty damn close to the style of flames I want, I cant draw THAT good hahaha

I have a couple big mods up my sleeve and I was going to try and get one of them done for Carlisle, but I dont think I will get it done in time. The truck isnt even registered for the road yet, so I think I am just going to cruise it around for Carlisle, Low Rollers and the Disturbed Image show and then take it back off the road and go to town!

Looks good man! I love the front end combo of the '94-97 Sonoma grille with the '98up Sonoma bumper What did you do with your main blinker lights since there's no place for them on that front end combo?

I took the bulbs out, and then taped up the harness. I didnt want to cut everything out, in the event I ever change the front end and need the turn signals. I have LED bulbs in the headlight blinkers that are pretty bright
