Default Syborg Twin Turbo - One wild Sonoma GT

Good Morning All,

I would like to introduce myself my name is Marty. I have been working on this project for the last couple years. This truck was supposed to be a daily driver. I purchased a Sonoma GT so I could build it to drive. However with all projects they sometime start with good intentions and then end up on a completely different path.

Currently the truck is almost ready for paint. The chassis has been set at 4.75 in the rear and 4.25 in the front at it's lowest point. Front Suspension is by Air Ride and the rear suspension was hand fabricated by Dave at Competition Fabrication ( www.compfab.com ) .

The first rendering was done by Bob Thrash at Rad Rides by Troy and the second rendering was done by Carter Hickman.

Currently the truck mods include:
18 x 8 & 20 x 10 Billet Specialties Wheels
BF Goodrich KDW-2 Tires
Currie Aluminum 9"
Wilwood 14" Disk Brakes Front & Rear
Vintage Air
Billet Specialties Serpentine System
4.3l All Aluminum Twin Turbo V6
4L80E Transmission
Big Stuff 3 w/Trans Controller
8 Point Roll Cage
Recovered Factory Interior in Viper Leather and Suede

There are so many other mods that I can't even list them all.

here are a few pics.

Marty,

Is the rendering by Carter hand drawn or a computer generated graphic?

Can't wait to see the finished truck!

Morning,

We had to have a 3d model of the truck made before it could be drawn digitally. Very Expensive to have a 3d model made.

Default 02-27-07 Update - Dedicated to Dave "Myclone"

Good Evening All,

This has been a very long week and a very sad Week.
http://www.syty.net/forums/showthread.php?t=46822
We lost a great guy in the SyTy Community and he will be Dearly missed.

One of his last post over on syty.net was in my build thread. Dave asked if I would adopt him.
The answer is yes but I think you a little to old to be my son and no you can't drive my truck.
So you are going to have to sit in the passenger seat.

The seat is yours Dave - gonna miss you big guy.

Okay I will try to go to back to the updates.

The New Head Gaskets arrived



Getting ready to rip the truck apart again.



Don't try this at home alone -- not a good idea.
Really I am going to buy a lift for my garage.

Wait I have an idea anyone want to sponsor me.



The Bed off and on it's body work stand.
Looks like I am going to need to contact Caleb and ask him if he set it up for 7 foot tall body men. :dunno:

Actually I started doing a hardware inventory and it's time to get some new nut's and bolts.



Decided to take a few Pics of the chassis while it was apart again.



Just another angle of the rear back half

The Original Concept was to create a Factory Prototype.
So in keeping with the Concept the Paint had to be applied like it would at the Manufacture.



Keeping the details throughout the paint job.



Still to be applied is the Satin Silver to the inside of the bed & Bed sides.
Watch for More updates this week.
