Valve cover... KILLER!

2 door wagon... KILLER!

Paint... KILLER, because of all the reasons you mentioned!

What are the plans for the undercarriage as far as paint goes...
it it still in primer?



Great build!




Mark

The underside is finished in color matched bedliner, as well as inside of fenders and inner aprons.

Holley Sniper manifold showed up today. Impressed with the quality fit and finish. Undecided if I will keep the LS6 intake or use this one. I certainly like the clean appearance of the Holley. It comes with black fuel rails. What are your opinions?

Thanks Charlie. That's my choice too, but many say how good the stock LS6 works.

That sniper one will look awesome!!! I'm sure it will work good if there is a good tuner around you.

Sniper all the way!

Stock manifold looks ugly compares to the Holley.

Performance... stock has longer tubes so better end? Sniper has short tubes so top end?
Or am I all wet on the description.
Honestly after a good tune not sure the seat of your pants will be able to tell...



But that Sniper looks cool!

It's the *****'s getting old. I can't find my new rear wheel cylinders, the one's I remember painting. Can't find my E-Stop electric parking brake unit also. I have looked through the shop 3 times and no luck. I guess they will only turn up AFTER I buy new ones.

Part of the mystery solved. I found the wheel cylinders. They were in a box of misc. stuff at the body shop. I wouldn't have guessed that. Still looking for the parking brake. Anyway, at least now I can finish up the rear brakes tonight.

More progress. I switched out the rear mono leafs for some multi's with a 2'' drop. Got the 3rd member installed. It has all new bearings, axle bearings and new posi, rear brakes done and brake lines. It's nice to be working with everything new, cleaned and painted. No grease to wash off my hands. My OCD kicked in and I had to blast the new shoes and paint them and a few other pieces. I know some of this stuff isn't seen but it make me feel better about the build. Never can be too clean or too detailed.

Found my E-Stop electric parking brake. It was in the Lokar floor shifter box. Isn't that where everyone stores theirs? LOL. I knew it was here somewhere.
