    Prepped the rest of the floor for x mat.



    Almost done the wiring for this pig. Wipers, radio, and trans switch remain. I will also do some interior lighting at some point.

    Exhaust. I plan on using electric cutouts, however I never liked having multiple tailpipes with doing so. I decided to try this out, seems okay. We'll see how it actually works.















    Made a nice battery tray.



    Bought new leaf springs for the rear. New shocks coming as well, procomp es3000 all around.

    Got the stereo all buttoned up



    Made new kick panels



    Sounds pretty good, we'll see when it's all sealed up.

    Got the new leaf springs in, also got new shocks for all 4 corners. Pro comps ES3000s



    So things got a little interesting this weekend.

    I work in the heavy truck industry. I've always liked the look of a nice drop visor. I feel like it completes the look of a truck.

    I figured I would give this a shot, and see how it turns out.

    After some calling around, I found a local big rig scrap yard that had a nice 12" from a peterbilt 379





    Got this thing is it's final location. Still need to make a center mount and some back bracing, but this is the jyst of it it. I am in love with it lol.

    thanks lol


    I am looking for a good semi-gloss / matte / satin black |I can paint this truck with. I had intended on using SEM's hod rod black, however they only come in pint sizes and would cost over $700 just for paint. My budget was more or less 200-450. Anyone have any suggestions nefore I go with tremclad
