I like those a lot, thanks for the info. Have you seen Restomod air? They have some different style vents that might fit what you’re trying to do with your cluster.

Yes sir I have! They are a little on the spendy side. Average circle vent is over 100 each. I am really thinking about getting two of the Diablo rectangle vents though for the pass side.

Re: 83/84 swb stepside long time build

So I test fitted tubz and fenders to find out that my intake was really close to the hood. I think it will hit actually.

Thanks. Moving along nice and slow.Been working on getting all the wiring ran and hid. Had may fenders and tubz off sitting on the floor. My youngest came in the garage and ran into the fender and it fell over and hit a block right on the body line. Made a really nice dent and cracked the paint. Have to fix the dent and repaint the fender. Kids, got to love them.

Re: 83/84 swb stepside long time build

My son asked me to take him to a concert. It is his first one. I asked who he wanted to see. He said he wanted to see FFDP. Just so happens that i love this kind of music. So I looked for a place close and we got tickets. Got us the best tickets I could get without him being in harm's way. He's kind of a little guy. We had to endure a 5 hour road trip and some very nasty weather at the show. But, we got to see Breaking Benjamin and FFDP. Both put on a really good show. We got him some cool concert Tees. What was really awesome is that we got to meet Ivan. Dude seems really cool.

Re: 83/84 swb stepside long time build

I got my stereo, got a couple amps, 2 8's, some 6.5's and some 4x10s. Got the console and sub box completed. That took a lot longer than I wanted. But, I feel it turned out pretty good. Getting it covered now. Hopefully get it back later this week. Meanwhile I'm going to work on my dash insert. Couple pics.

Cool first concert. The console is looking pretty sweet.

I typically hate center consoles but that thing is looking great. Works very well with those seats. Awesome work.
