well ive had this truck for 2 years now and just now really getting to starting to dig into the darn thing.

my plans for now are to get the front to finaly lay out, and possibly to lay the rear out eventualy. but for now its taking a hint from layinbody31's work truck.

this is basicaly what i started out with.




the truck was kind of a hack job. the rear bags were mounted dangerously and there were leaks everywhere in the setup.
finaly this last nov. my viair 450 shot out on me. so now i have a 380 on my 5gal.

i ditched the factory seats for a set of 01 cavys and then switched for a 1st gen bench seat.

i know the pic is before i cleaned the seats.

sad part is thats as far as it has gone, its still red. i planned to recover it in a supprise material.
i also have a 99+ leather wrapped steering wheel waiting to go in.

as well as a set of 4" drop blocks to replace the 3" blocks.

and shortly after the bolt in notches that i still have to clean and paint.


i plan to replace these

with these

and i will finaly be able to use this darn thing


i also may turn this in to a switchbox

but i may ditch it for a avs or eai switchbox.

i also finaly installed the art shock towers


i forgot to get a pic of my dropspindles but i also still need to install those and remove the inner fenders.

looks pretty pimp. i plan on painting my handle cups, dash besel, and glove box the factory colors of the truck, id like them to be green on top and pewter on the botom portion, with some sortof pinstripe to separate them somehow.

you need an ash tray just to cover the hole im guessing?

if ya ever need anyhelp just give a hollar.

I need a ashtray for a 1983 mazda b2000.

If you set your mind to it you can do it, I never thought my interior would turn out like that. Im actually not that far from you, im closer than what brian is (purplepassion).
yea brian is down in mt washington, (im talking to him now about his 20s :cool: ). i have 2 locations really one in floydknobs where my parrents and actual residence is, and then i also have my gf's place which is in clarksville, which is where i am at this moment. whats your location?

i have a basis of a vision for my truck eventualy

wow. some of those came out fuzzy as hell.

and yes it is still a stupid mess in the truckbed. but fortunatly its just a mess and not hacked. granted this took forever to do. but i did save myself a ton of time by pretaping all the fittings last week.

edit, i do plan on cleaning up mysetup in the bed when my new switchbox gets here.
