Re: Project Nightmare Porterbuilt Install

Sorry for the lack of post s lately to all those who ve been following the thread. I ve been doing mostly less than glamourous stuff like painting and wiring and working overtime to pay for all these headaches. But i m determined to get this project done. So with most of the wiring done for the ecu and compressors i started on the accuair level sensors. My mechanic buddy came over and helped me with the fronts. To be honest, i really think this is a 2 person job and it s not that easy if you ve never done it before. But the gods smiled on us and we nailed the bastards perfectly. Here s some pics but it s tough to really get a good picture. But yes they do both clear and travel perfectly within the 100 degree arc that s recommended. Got some more paint this weekend then doing the rear sensors next week.

Re: Project Nightmare Porterbuilt Install

Ok so this week has actually been a productive one. My boss came over who used to work as a fabricator/body guy and we fabricated the rear sensor mounts. Also my buddy who does paint wanted a harage in a box that i wasn t using so i said i d trade him to sprey my firewall. Well he decided to do a little more than just the firewall. Not gonna complain. Came out good and i don t think i ll have to worry bout rust for a while.

Re: Project Nightmare Porterbuilt Install

Sorry folks been away a few weeks. got a piece of metal in my eye while grinding and it slowed up my progress. i know...safety glasses. wear em all the time when using anything i think might fly back or break on me. it was a miserable experience. basically just trying to wrap up small things before my buddy takes the truck and paints it. got the brakelines on and worked on the airlines.

Re: Project Nightmare Porterbuilt Install

Looking good man. Get a pic of it laid out from the side.

Be careful with your eyes! I had a piece of metal drilled out of my eye a few weeks ago. I was wearing safety glasses and it slipped by the side. Not fun!

Awesome job so far... I believe these metal cone shaped spacers are backwards.

Re: Project Nightmare Porterbuilt Install

Ya know nds I think you might just be right about that now that I look at it. no big deal though cuz that bar is comin back off anyway to get the new rear diff cover on it. I need to find out the gear ratio on the truck so I thought I d beef up that cover while I m at it. Sorry Brooks I didn t know who sent me that request but i ll accept it. You gotta scroll down a bit to find the video. In the meantime here s some pics of the fresh painted tins I just got back from my buddy. Finally got around to getting them painted and that bike has been done for a few years now. I think you guys will like the art on the seat too. I thought it was *****en. The girl who did it really nailed what I wanted on it.

Re: Project Nightmare Porterbuilt Install

Got the new rear lowering blocks in a few days ago. They take the rear down another inch. While i was at it i got around to torqueing all the hardware down too. I lime the new stance better. You can see the top of the pumpkin is just about flush with the top shock bar mount.

Re: Project Nightmare Porterbuilt Install

Wow, looks good. Glad to see you're still at it. This is very inspiring. I'm looking at going with a Porterbuilt rear setup and get away from my leafsprings. I'm anxious to see how low it looks in the back with the bed on. Keep up the good work.
