    The truck is moving along slowly, but its moving along.
    First a mod I did to the inner fenders.
    I welded up one of the valleys in the inner fender to use a s a wire loom for the electrical wire going to the front of the truck.

    Here is the other side that will hold the wires.

    Filler, primer, block sanded, and painted

    Default OH YES YOU DID!!!

    You absolutely continue to amaze me and all of us. Love the fixture you made to hold both fenders and in a vise!

    I could buy a nice house for cash if I had the money it would have cost to pay you for half the work you've done to that truck. AND it's coming out so amazingly cool. CANNOT believe all the modifications and fabrications you successfully and precisely made.

    God has cast some of the same DNA in you as he did in http://imageevent.com/kevininohio?n=0 who would be (is) Kevin in Ohio. Both of you guys have hands and minds guided from above. Just amazing what can be done.

    Thank you for sharing the latest efforts on your end with us. SO much appreciated. Makes a lot of sense to look at but to be you and start with but a picture in your mind. Absolutely AMAZING.

    Raptor liner tinted with body color and clear.


    Raptor liner tinted with body no clear.


    Well once again I could not leave well enough alone. If you guys remember I never liked how the column stuck out of the firewall when I installed the 55 dash. The aftermarket mount just looked to busy and I wanted something smooth looking. So I decided to do this.

    I made this piece out of sheetmetal and exhaust pipe I had laying around.

    Mocked up to see if I liked it better before I commented to it.

    Welded in and mocked up and yes I like it much better.

    Grinded all the welds, filler, primer and almost done blocking. I will blend the paint in that area and you will never notice the difference.


    I did not want the filler in the bed so this is what I came up with. Its a pop up motocycle filler that I located in the fleetside stake pocket, that one the the tailgate is attacked to. I had to figure out the plumbing it was some work but I like it.

    Working on the tune since the cam swap. The engine was turning off when I gave it some gas so I had to start tweaking ECU settings. Here are a couple of videos of me trying to get it right.

    BAM55 and it is ALIVE!

    You are just TOO MUCH! You give new meaning to the term "OMG" Oh My God for sure.

    The only thing wrong with your posts are they are buried this far in the forum list. None the less, PLEASE keep posting and showing. The motor sounds a lot smoother and WILL throw you back in the seat for sure.

    Thanks again for sharing. Wish I was a neighbor!

    While I can appreciate and love what you are doing and "kevininOhio" has done to his Dodge, you guys are so over the top it's not funny and hard to believe all you guys have done.

    Talk about reinvent the wheel, you guys are one man assembly plants.

    I took and enjoyed the time to start at your first post and really studied what you did to that truck. First off, I think you're nuts but you have a mind that has worked some serious overtime that translated to your hands that God gave you to accomplish what you've done so far. I mean, crazy things like chopping that hood for no other reason than a vision in your head.

    Listen, I love this work as the majority of members here but you've taken things to excessive heights that I could not get to and you are to be commended. You're a combination Einstein / DaVinci to the automotive world. I can't say it enough. Just, PLEASE keep posting and showing and thanks.
