I have one of the aftermarket dash pads in Cannonball. I think its a Dashes Direct one, and it also came from Brothers. Its not as bad as everybody makes it out to be, and after trimming, working it and getting some heat into it, it will look about as good as what I expected these trucks to look like on the showroom floor (which is not perfect hahaha). We also used SEM vinyl die/paint on this...if you even look at it the wrong way the paint scratches off
HAHA right on that's about what I was figuring too. Thanks man your trucks looking awesome!

Both panels have already cracked on me and this truck doesn't exactly see a lot of daily usage.
I forgot to ask you where you got the trim for the door panel inserts? looks brand new.

Re: Project Cannonball C10

Hey guys, itís been a while. Nothing has really been happening with Cannonball. Itís been sitting in storage at a buddyís house since December. He had somebody come out and work on the engine tune a couple of months ago so it now has much better idle and part throttle cruise.

I picked up a really nice Ď77 short-fleet that Iíve been spending all my free time on for the last little while. Iím definitely the type of guy thatís more into building them, so Cannonball is probably going to be changing owners very soon.

I think it came in around 3400lbs. The new chassis weighs probably twice as much as the factory one, but the aluminum motor and fiberglass front end counter that weight; and the nice thing is that it shifted the weight distribution backwards so its roughly 52/48 front to back now.
