Re: [ProjecT] Work Truck

What is the size is the material going to be that you will be making your parts from? give me a L x W, i think you said the thickness would be 5/8's correct? The Length and Width of the material will sorta give me a better understanding of how this could be done. If this is going to be made out of flat or round stock i dont think it would be a problem.

Re: [ProjecT] Work Truck

It's a balljoint adapter plate that will only be about a 3" x 3" size piece of flat plate with one big hole in the middle and 4 smaller holes positioned around it. Jim has a guy with a water jet that can cut it but I always like to keep my options open to a cheaper alternative if one exists

Here's a pic of one that AceHaag made:

Re: [ProjecT] Work Truck

I imagine as easy as that would be it would be a lot cheaper to do it in all one operation like the waterjet or cnc. An hour tops to manual make that piece on a manual mill, and i would imagine it would take less than 5 mins on a cnc.

Re: [ProjecT] Work Truck

Yeah, I agree. And since I need a pair of them per person and already have 3 people wanting them CNC would just be the way to go

lol if it was gonna stay lifted I might do the pre runner fenders, but since it will switch back and forth with the seasons I'm gonna have to say no

But yeah, it does look pretty funny with those big ass tires sitting on the inner fenders

Yeah, back needs to come up to level out with the front. I'm gonna try playing around with the higher setting on the shackles this week

If you can spray and prep I could probably handle the body work. Plus mine literally needs no bodywork. We may have to work something out because the thing I get asked most often is "are you gonna paint it any time soon?" lol

Re: [ProjecT] Work Truck

Just fixed my rear exhaust hanger now on my lunch break. The stud it bolted to had snapped off when I took it apart to replace the trans line way back in like Oct. When it was slammed you didn't notice it dangling beneath the truck but it also would've meant jacking the truck up to fix it. Well now that it's lifted you could see it dangling and it looked bad, so since no jacking up was required I grabbed a 5/16" tap from work (oh no!) and tapped threads on the rest of the stud. Then secured it with a new nut/washer/lock washer and called it a day. Now the exhaust is fully supported again and nothing is hanging below the frame

I've done that a few times lol

Usually it's if there's like an Xtreme with some rims or something, they pull up next to me and kinda look at me funny like "stupid 4wd" and then I air it out and they get this "WTF??? That thing has HYDROZZZ???" look

Here's a pic of one that AceHaag made:

thats about 5-10 minutes of programing and 5 minutes of cnc time for each piece...7" x 4" flat stock 0/0 top left corner, make 2 pieces with one cycle. 5 tools spot drill, small drill, large drill, counter sink, 3/8" endmill for the profile. leave 3 or 4 20 thou tabs on the back side, break em off out of the machine and grind em smooth when you chamfer the edges on the belt sander...

lol sounds easy enough. What file format do you work with and how much would it cost to make per plate?

I've got it drawn in 3D Inventor (.ipt) but can save it as a .dwg as well (or several other formats)

Re: [ProjecT] Work Truck

A little bit of an update for this truck...

Unfortunately my radiator has a hole in it and needs to be replaced Apparently the through-the-fins zip tie thingy that holds on one corner of the eFan must've been supporting too much weight, and it broke down through one of the cross tubes in the radiator. So I've been having to add water to it daily and deal with it spraying nasty water/coolant/DexCool shit all over the inside of the engine bay until I can afford/buy a new radiator.

I'm looking to get one in and fix it over the long weekend next weekend (Memorial Day). At that point I'll also be trying to fab up a proper top mount for the radiator, as well as properly mount and wire the eFan (have the controller, haven't had time to put it back on yet).

And then, because money has become really tight for me, I don't know how soon I'll realistically be able to build the 6link, so I'm thinking that I'm going to just switch back to the mono-leafs/blocks/bags in the rear and switch the lift spindles back to stock spindles and go back to being slammed for summer, but this time around with the 20s and big brakes. Maybe if I get time before Camp N Drag I'll pull the inner fenders/relocate stuff as well as finish building and install my Wheels Centered UCAs so I can lay as low as possible on the 20s. If I have the money before then (chances are slim) I may also try to get the 6link built/installed. But for now I just want to make sure I get it 100% reliably daily driving and able to take to CnD bagged/slammed

I think there may have been a pic or two of the Beretta in the thread for my '91. And no, I'm not a member of that site nor did I ever want to do anything to the Beretta other than a few stickers I put on it

Re: [ProjecT] Work Truck

Scored a 4door window switch panel from Deeznutz

Thanks a bunch man!



Rear window switches are going to be used to control my bags until I can get my paddle shifter/switches hooked up. Current switch box is going to be used as the air ride towing switch box and able to switch between this and my wife's TrailBlazer

I'm debating using the window lock to control my compressor too, but I currently have 2 compressor switches since the truck is set up for both the EDC and the ViAir 480 I had on it. But I've never had an issue with the EDC since I got it working and I plan to put the ViAir (and the Swinger relay) on the TrailBlazer, so I'd really only need 1 switch unless I plan to ever add a backup electrical comp again. But if I did it'd be way off in the distance.

Hmmmmmmmm decisions decisions...
