I have to get up really early in the morning and didn't go out tonight, I'm bored and so I figured I'd make an update since its been a while, but I've made some progress on the truck.
Thanks to the guys at Volkwerks, E-klusiv and Grunion all the unused holes are welded up and ready for smoothing.
The guys at Grunion also notched the frame for optimized slammage
Rear suspension is back under the truck as well as the fuel tank. I coated the rear leaf springs with Graphite Slip Plate to keep them nice and quiet. I also put in new poly bushings for the rear suspension. Axle is flipped with spring perches that were welded on by yours truly, then powdercoated. Overall drop in the rear is ~4" and load adjustable with corvette air shocks. I have some lowering plates if it still isn't low enough.
New rear stainless steel brake lines from Apex Tuning that I assisted in developing.
It doesn't look like a whole lot of progress, but between shuttling the truck to and from a couple of shops, having the work done and waiting for powdercoat, i think its coming along.
I feel like I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and with some friends keeping on me about it I will try to make these updates more regular. I hope to have it at least running by November 1.
The next couple weeks should look like this:
-Finish smoothing the engine bay
