Re: YelLow

Thanks guys, it gets dark here by time I get home from work and already dipping down to -10*c with no garage, most of my work is done to the truck on the weekends.

I hope to get it driveable again soon, and work on the bed, cab floor and front end over the winter. and spring.

Re: YelLow

Got some more wiring done today, ran some 3wire 10g for the compressors and got started on the relays and power divider.

Everythign will be much tidier once I get it all hooked up.

Re: YelLow

Honestly bro id ditch the 40amp viair relays and get yours an 80amp stinger. Those 40's are a pain and pop all the damn time, whether in cab or out of. Just a heads ups bro. And they help cut down on/clean up wiring well
Cant wait to see more updates

Re: YelLow

Had a long weekend up here in Canada and finally got her back on the road!

Need to make a bracket to secure the brake line tee to the differential, and tidy up some things (I dont think tidying up ever stops on these projects)

and get to work on the bed. I REALLY want to drive it, I went to the gas station and the carwash but I don't know if I want to give the cops a reason to pull me over by driving it down the highway to work with no bed.

Thoughts?

I should have my last fittings in on Monday then I can triple check everything and be able to put the bed back on, it's been so tempting to drive it this week though!

Re: YelLow

ALMOST got it back together again, ran into one small hiccup. My water traps need to be moved. One of the braces for the bed runs parallel to the cross member i bolted them to, and for some reason I thought I had more room then there is (none)

No big deal, I'll get that done and do a little bit of cutting for the bed and be able to drive this bad boy again.





Here is the problem, I have the bed spaced up for now with a piece of wood, just need to move my water traps to the opposite side of that cross member and I'll be good to go.



I also know that my bed is a tad rusty Luckily we've put our house on the market and put in an offer on a new house with a double garage! so next time my truck comes apart it's getting the full monty. Body off, full restoration, and I'm planning to get a new bed and starting from scratch.

Re: YelLow

Got it back together and drove it today!

Now all I need to do is make a notch cover, and, I haven't decided whether to cover the tank or leave it open, thoughts?

Well for now in rocking an air tank notch cover with the stock bedlinder cut out.

Cleaning her up for the ontario mini truck cruise to the quarry down near Toronto on Saturday.

Then ill be aware for work. Hopefully 2014 is the year I manage to cross the rest of the items off my list in my first post.

Re: YelLow

I missed the cruise due to a family emergency. But I did figure out how to use photbucket for my iPhone

Also shortened my antenna for now until I get my billet antenna from Philbuilt Designs.

Re: YelLow

Its been a while. So here's pictures
Got some goodies from Philbuilt Designs. A licence plate bracket with the trucks name and my initial on the drivers side and my wife's on the passenger side.


He also made this billet antenna.





Next came some new wheels from RoadGr8r Boss 338 18x8 and 18x9.5. Going with 235/40 and 275/35 tires




This has led to me finding a temporary new home where I can work on making her more low and fitting the new rims. I don't think these pictures will need any explaining.











Starting all my cuts and clearing on the small side. Once it's on the ground I'll get an idea of exactly what needs to be massaged.

Re: YelLow

I'd also like to give credit to SLAB for the rim and tire combo.

Although you've moved on to something different it was your truck that finally convinced be to ditch the ZQ8s.

Well keep watching here and I'll let you know if the 275 cause any problems.

The only thing that may be an issue is hitting sides. But we shall see.

Re: YelLow

Today was remove inner fenders day. Which turned into the infamous. "Everything's hitting everywhere" day.











At this point I decided I may as well see what the 18's will look like.



And then took the transmission crossmember out so that I can take it to work and modify it.



That's all for now. Going to be a father any day now. But my truck will live on!

Re: YelLow

Made modest progress yesterday. Got the transmission crossmember in and back on the ground. With my wife being due any minute and the truck being I a friends garage I try not to be gone from home for too long at a time.







And then while looking at and planning what to do on the passenger side fender I noticed a big crack in my intake bonnet

Re: YelLow

No baby yet it could literally kick off at any minute.

Epoxy is what I'll use until I get a more permanent solution. I'm going to look for a stock intake. Don't want to spend the money on a name brand intake. And this is what happens to an eBay intake after 7 years.

Re: YelLow

So where do I begin?

We had our baby last Monday and things are going fantastic. I've been off work helping out around the house and this evening when the wife and baby went for a nap I went to work on the truck.

Started by putting in some brackets and braces I made for the computer and abs. Now that they're mounted I'll make some more brackets to firm everything up.

After this stage I'll be doing a lot of the work at work on nights and weekends where I'll have access to every tool I could need.

Here's a quick shot of the computer sitting on its new angle iron tray.


Didn't get a shot of the abs and fuse box bracket but I will next time.

Everything secure and ziptied I decided to go down the street to the gas station and put some air in the tires.



Approximately ride height need to cut up the front fenders still. Make a new ypipe. And look at raising my gas tank somehow. When I did the five link I went as high as I could but it's not quite above the frame.



Quite the incline into the shop. Just makes it at full lift.



Then disaster.








Managed to work my way from the back leap frogging jacks to get the front up and some planks under it.



And parked it outside.



Only damage seems to be a dented bumper.



Not bad considering the 4'x7' hole that tried to swallow my truck.



Home now for some comfort food and netflix. Talk about nerve racking.

Definitely. I'm very grateful I got off quite lucky. Very minor damage to the truck and I'm just fine. The garage floor on the other hand needs some work.

Re: YelLow

It's a crawl space there's an old underfloor furnace I guess the place used to be a metal shop. The owners had his jeep parked in there before he offered to let me use it over the winter. Had no idea this was going to happen.

He plans on knocking it all in and backfilling it to put in a slab this year.

Re: YelLow

Brought the truck home today.


Then cleaned up this ground that started giving me simultaneous ABS and brake warning lights.



Did some measuring for bracing the battery tray and ECM.



Aaaaand worked on the grill some more.



Best news of all is the snow is almost gone which means I can start training strongman again. Here is my axle making it's first appearance.

Re: YelLow

i get a kick out of that statement, your "training" should be digging that axle out doing a sh*t ton of curls with it then running/ training threw the snow dragging the axle behind you.

Re: YelLow

Built my brackets for the ECM and battery.







Then I snapped my side post extension. So that's where we're at for the night.



I took a look at building my own y pipe but I think my best bet is to have a shop do it for me.

If the quote ends up being ridiculous then I have nothing to lose trying to make one myself.

Re: YelLow

Just a small update today.

I picked this up from Sonovastitch. A local upholstery and leather tooling shop. I like to try to include local products on my truck so I have them my armrest and pretty much said do what you want but I want the colours to flow with the stock charcoal interior.

I couldn't be happier.
