The Guy's over at Body Language smoothed the Dash and put a coat of paint on it to protect it.
bodylanguageinc@sbcglobal.net





Ordered the new headliner from LMC Truck.
The new headliners has an ABS backing instead of the flimsy foam backing.




More to come in the next couple weeks

Good Morning All,

Ron Wilson & I have been toying around with the Idea of a custom set of Skuff plates for hood pins.
Ron drew up the design with some direction from me.

Then Mike Renz Introduced me to the Guy's at Fabritek
Right out of the Gate these guy's said they would love to work with us.
Fabritek Co. Inc. Your one stop machine and fabrication shop.

Here is the design we came up with -- tell me what you think.

Good thing my other GT is still in my warehouse

Good Morning,

It's gonna be a good month.
Popular Hot Rodding just did a nice little feature on the truck in June issue.



Every Day it's getting a little closer to being complete.



Prior to the Article being published the truck was going to be painted at Rad Ride's.
However, due to schedule's and deadline conflict the truck is now being
painted at Kenny Davis Hot Rods.

Good Afternoon all,

Okay it's time to let the Cat out of the Bag officially.
Last Friday Night we packed up the trailer and headed to Nebraska.



I wish you could see the front of the trailer -- it's packed with parts.



So you ask what's in Nebraska? The "Recovery Room" is in Nebraska.
This truck isn't ready for Interior is it. Nope !!

My father and I figured we might as well kill two birds with one Stone.
Kenny was dropping off the 57 at Tracy's - so we figured we should just meet at Tracy's.



I'm pretty excited to be working with Kenny Davis Klan.
They are great group of guy's and so far we are having a blast picking on Kenny.



Plenty more to come in the near Future.
So Stayed tuned as the next couple month's should be exciting.
Kenny Davis Hotrods

Good Day All,

I would like to welcome our new Sponsor - Nitrous Express.
Brian, noticed the truck and said that we needed to work together and I agreed.



www.nitrousexpress.com or brianh@nitrousexpress.com

Our plans are to build an Intercooler chillier similar to the kit Jerry offers for the Syclones.
However the new kit will be custom built to our Intercooler.




While were in there we figured we might as well add a little more go-go juice to the motor.
We still haven't decided which kit were going to use but I am certain Brian has something up his sleeve.

Guy has been steady working on the Motor.
Collecting parts and working on some old parts that needed some TLC.

Way back in the day (April 2002) I was able to locate a sheet metal Moroso 2 Piece main seal Oil Pan.
Trust me it was very hard to Find.




Dennis over at www.highspeedwelding.com trimmed the front cross member (August 2004) so we would be able
to remove the oil pan just in case there were problems with the motor. It's much easier to pull a pan then pull a motor.



Dennis added some Simple Bracing to the crossmember for Strength.

The Guy's at Rockford Racecraft welded a new pick up to the oil pump to ensure proper oil supply.





The pan has been stripped down and it heading to Kenny's so we can put in the oil return lines.
Once were done with the pan it's heading back to Dave at Comp Fab so we can clean up all of the Welds.



Plenty more in store in the next few months.
