Thanks, no measurement necessary. I'd like to use stock length shocks but didn't want to smash them all the time. I assume it's the crossmember in front that is lower?

BTW, I'm enjoying following your progress.

Re: Project "Candy Apple"

I took a short vacation from work and the truck for the holidays, but I did get a little bit done. I trimmed the engine covers and got them mounted, finished the air intake fab work but it still needs painted. Now here's where this project went south. When I changed the cooling system back to the mechanical fan I no longer needed the fan relays or wiring for the old electric fans. In the process of removing that stuff I found some other wiring that I wasn't happy with. As usual with me, the more I dug the more I found. So that led to basically a rewire from the firewall forward with proper wiring techniques and terminals. I built a new relay panel with the correct relays, fuse blocks, OBDll port, and check engine light. I still need to put a few more wires in loom, and waiting on a 18" maf extension harness.

Re: Project "Candy Apple"

Did you know you can remove that oil fill tube and the cap will screw straight into the valve cover?

Re: Project "Candy Apple"

Yeah, I had to trim the covers anyway because of the high mount A/C brackets so I just left the filler neck alone.

Re: Project "Candy Apple"

Truck is looking great... I'm interested in seeing how your 285/50 rear tires work out since I've got a set ordered myself. If you need a narrower spacer, dmvmotorsports sells a 1" hubcentric spacer on ebay for $40/pair. However, they have metric studs so you would need new lugnuts as well.

Re: Project "Candy Apple"

I can finally say I'm finished with the truck and spent the weekend detailing and driving this thing. It's not to the level I originally hoped for, but given my time and budget, it turned out real nice and far better than what I started with. I have the exhaust scheduled for later this week, then I'm officially done.

Re: Project "Candy Apple"

Do you have any info on the air intake setup? I need a better setup that goes to the drivers side like that.

Re: Project "Candy Apple"

UKNOWME I modified a 2003 Silverado air intake by cutting off and rewelding the stock mounting brackets. Then added a 90` elbow and coupling to get it to the fresh air opening on the core support. I also had a 24" MAF sensor extension harness made, and added a 4" cone filter.

Unless I missed it, do you happen to know the paint code for the red? Or the paint manufacturer? Awesome truck by the way!

Yet another beautiful build rolls out of your shop. You are the King of quick when it comes to transforming these trucks.

Truck came out nice. The bigger rear tire looks good.

Thank you for the quick response. I have an '84 K30 4x4 SRW that I am just starting to round up parts for. I plan on a two-tone paint job that is basically the opposite of yours. I'm thinking your red in the middle with a gun metal gray top and bottom. If I do a cowl induction hood then maybe two SS style stripes down the hood.
