Okay time for the real update.

Slid the truck forward from the back of the shop and spent a little time putting it all back together again.

That's Travis looking at the truck. Yep it's low !!



If you've ever met Kenny you know he likes them low and slammed to the ground.
We needed to lower the rear just to make him feel comfortable.
Yep it's low enough.



Side shot of the rear tire tucked in the wheel well.

That's Kenny drawing on the front cover.
We need to make an opening for the Intercooler.
Ps. That Kenny guy is really good with a Marker.



Hanging the doors trying to get everything straight before they start doing all of the body work.



By the end of the day the doors looked pretty good the fenders were back on and we all came to an agreement on the colors and finishes on the truck.

Plenty more to come in the near future.

Did i mention that he took a red scotch brite pad to my wheel.

Okay I know we've been a little sleepy with the updates. But not to worry were working on the trucks. Just trying to gather parts for the engine.

Guy at Rockfordracecraft has been working with Jessels on the Lifter and shaft mount rockers. Once we have those we should be pretty close to sealing up the motor.

On a side note Ron ( Wilson Muscle Cars ) and & I have been workng on the locking versions of the hood pins. We just want to have options.

Good Day All,

I know it's shocking actually it's amazing.
We have Pictures - only 3 but we actually have Pictures.
Yahooooooo!!!

This is the first Photo (using the term photo loosely here)
I think it's the side of the truck with some string running down it.



Yep I was correct -- it's the side of the truck.
The Guy's are actually working on aligning the bed width with the cab width.
This is not for the faint at heart



The side has been pulled out to match the widest part of the cab.
Next, they are going to cut the back of the cab and pull it out to match the side of the bed.
Our goal is to have a perfectly straight line down the side of the truck.




I can't wait to see it in person.
But for now I will just have to live with Pictures.

ps - not to worry new camera is on the way.

Good Morning All,

The Guy's at Kenny Davis Hot Rods have been hard at work with way to many projects.
Dads 57 is back at the shop and the Camaro they are working on is just incredible.
Looks like it's time for another road trip to see all of them.

All the hard work is paying off, I can add one more hat to my collection.
We wanted a gauge set that would compliment the truck's theme and Autometer was the only Choice.
The new Automaker's gauges will look right at home in the Dash of Syborg.



It's hard to believe that all but one of these gauges are going to fit in the Dash.
3655 Sport Comp II Water Temp
3692 Sport Comp II Volt
3656 Sport Comp II Oil Temp
3603 Sport Comp II Boost (mechanical)
3663 Sport Comp II Fuel Pressure
3653 Sport Comp II Oil Pressure
3616 Sport Comp II Fuel Level
3688 Sport Comp II Speedo
3697 Sport Comp II Tach

Mounted in the Center Consule
3657 Sport Comp II Trans Temp



Every Guage was specifically choosen.
Five of the Small Guages are Full Sweep / Two of them are Partial Sweep
The two Partial Sweep guages will be mounted in the outside triangle of the dash layout.



I'm really looking forward to seeing if we can hit 160mph with this mini-truck.

It looks like the cab is off and heading to the Powder Coater.
The entire inside of the cab will be coated Satin Black.
Once the cab is back the outside corners will be filled with lead to smooth the gap between the cab and the bed.



The chassis moved off to the side waiting to meet up with the body again.





Wait, that's the Chevrolet Gate - what happened to the other gate.



That's it for today. Maybe I'll post and update on the Garage project I started in January.

ps - wait till you see the sweet T-shirt that Autometer sent me.

Good Morning All,

Quick Update.......



I met with the guy's from Air Ride at Indy Good Guy's.
After Talking with Jeremy we decided that we needed to upgrade the suspension on Syborg to the new Level Pro system.



Normally I would show you pictures of the actual parts but then we all know Kenny's not good with Pictures.
So the good guy's at Air Ride sent me there catalog images just in case.

Below is the new ARC4000L System.
It has some pretty cool features instead of me telling you in my words I figured it would be easier to just do a cut and past from Air Rides Site.

http://www.ridetech.com/productinfo/levelpro.asp



There new Pocket size remote control.



The new LevelPro™ leveling system is the most advanced air suspension control system available today.
It is the result of several years of development by “hands on” engineers and refinement in real world vehicles.

The LevelPro™ system uses a unique combination of ride height sensors AND air pressure sensors to quickly achieve your selected ride height.
By comparing the position of the ride height sensor to the air pressure the vehicle is leveled with no crossloading.


FEATURES
• More accurate leveling of ride height sensors in addition to air pressure sensors allows extremely accurate vehicle leveling with no crossloading

• Better air pressure sensors
New voltage based air pressure sensors eliminate EMI interference and grounding problems that can lead to inaccurate pressure readings and ride heights. This new voltage based sensor has more resolution [accuracy] and quicker response to allow faster and more accurate air pressure presets. It’s also smaller in diameter to allow direct installation into the RidePro® and BigRed solenoid blocks to eliminate remote mounting panels with extra lines and fittings.

• Easier viewing in bright light from any angle
VFD [vacuum florescent display] instead of an LCD [liquid crystal display]

• Ride-height-on-start
Each time the vehicle is started it will automatically go to highway ride height.

• Control panel programming
All programming [including the ride-height-on- start feature] can be accessed from the control panel so you can hide the ECU and still have easy access to all programming functions.

• 3 ‘1 touch’ ride height presets
Accessible from control panel.
These ride heights are programmed by a simple push and hold action similar to programming a radio station preset.
No secret sequence of buttons to push!

• Backlit soft touch silicone buttons
Easier actuation by feel, no diverting your eyes from the road to see which button you're pushing!

• Extruded aluminum ECU
More robust to avoid physical damage during installation

Good Afternoon All,

The cab is back from the Powder Coaters.
Kenny said it looks really good and he's very happy.

Instead of media blasting the cab to remove all of the paint they decided to cook it off.
How would you like to be in that oven?



He's got one of those Tripods and he still takes blurry pics.
Travis can you please help him or do I have to buy him one of those steady shot camera's?



Wait he must have gotten the Tripod out for this picture.
Seems down south they will do anything for a great but shot.

Ps - I've spared everyone's eye's and painted in a longer shirt.



Truth be told if anyone is every looking for a great shop to work with the guy's at
Kenny's shop are a blast to work with. They are totally laid back and have way to much fun.

Good Morning All,

As you know the cab is back from the Powder Coaters and ready to get some Primer to Protect it.

What is shocking is that Kenny took these pics at 6:37am on a Saturday Morning.







Look Mom - No Overspray.

Good Morning,

The guy's have been hard at work on the Sema Camaro.
However they are still working on the truck.

Right now they are working on fitting the bed cladding.



The cladding now sits on the side of the truck perfectly without any stress.
I am so happy we made everything in Fiberglass.
www.syclone-typhoon.com



The tailgate is finally fit - This was a big pain in the ars.
You can also see that the Rear Cover is going to need to be widened
The gap from the Factory is almost 1/2" - not good



PS - your not going to believe me but Kenny didn't take these pictures Travis did.
