Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

(just the other day) I installed a much needed heater to keep the windshield from fogging up at night on these brisk LA winter nights





Not pictured, but I ran some flexible hose from two of the ports up to the windshield defroster vents. Little heater works like a champ

It is sure getting cold here I can almost see my breath in the air some mornings.

I like the shifter boot - or hat? And your screen name too Got more pics of your truck to post? Up here, I've never seen one of these trucks with factory air conditioning, and I never knew before this site that a heater was "optional". Last few days temps have been in the mid -30's to -40's with the windchill (C, but F is pretty close in that range).

Thank you! My shift-boot-hat is always a hit. Yeah I'm working on gathering up all my past photos from when I got the truck up to now and making a sort of build/progress thread.

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

Dressed up my engine bay a bit with some aluminum stamped radiator support shrouds, carbon dipped plenum cover, and some raw aluminum coil covers





The LS3 is tucked back there pretty tight so I had to make some cuts on each one to get it to fit against the firewall.

Man, I'm loving your truck Zac. Are the rad support covers commercially available, or did you make them?

I wish I had the tools to make them. But if you go modshopinc.net/store and search over on the left hand side under Radiator Support Filler Panels you'll find them there.. a few different pattern styles. They took a little massaging to get them to fit in perfectly, and I had to re-drill a couple of the pre-drilled holes to line up with the holes on my truck.. but nothing major. I also rivetted down the two front corners to keep them both snugged down and inline with eachother.

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

I put some rust converter in my rear cab corner pockets. I am worried because it said to put on a second coat with in 20 minuets and after it turns black but it never turned black. I don’t know if it’s because the first coat was too heavy or because there was some navel jelly left on the surface. I hope not the latter. I tried to clean it off the best I could considering the location. I will see how it looks next weekend. I also found some rust on the interior where the door frame connects to the floor. Another set back

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

swapped the p.o.s. POL lower control arms for some Ridetech StrongArms. Some of the best money I ever spent on the old girl. Went from feeling every single little bump and crack in the road to just gliding over it like driving on a soft pad of butter haha.

Brian Stoner of Stoner Pinstriping came back today to finish striping the tailgate. A few shots of his work today and the hood he did a few months back:
