I need some specs on those headers if you don't mind. They look like they fit great. Who makes them?

Re: Project: Tall Grass

The headers are low buck stainless peices from DNA motoring on ebay.

they fit, well ok, the passanger side required trimming a bit of the flange off the inpection cover area of the trans, and the drivers side has one tube that is too close to the control arm shaft, but I can massage it to work, but for the price the headers are well built and id buy em again, oh ya they are for a 99-02 F body camaro/ firebird.. cant wait to get home and work on this thing......



and yes Tony, lets get them shoes on your orange buggy, its gonna be one KILLER truck!!!!

Re: Project: Tall Grass

well folks, im headed back to work, with almost no progress, all I managed to do were draw up some upper bag mounts and have them lasered out. I feel bad, maybe ill go out and tack em up before I leave , then ill feel like I accomplished SOMETHING..


why the lack of progress ?? well you see Mr Phat Tony is a bad bad man.
Thanks to him , he just had to give me a killer deal on another truck.....

here she is, the plans are to get wheels that match, a proper stance ie LOW.

scuff and shoot in red satin , and beat on it till the 64 is done, then it can become a nice lil hot rod too!!!









witha big aarse cam, high stall , and what feels like 4:11's with a posi, this thing Looooooooooooooooves burnouts, and blowing the doors off ricers.....

Thanks again tony, your the man!!!

Re: Project: Tall Grass

Back from holidays.

Re: Project: Tall Grass

Brought some parts to work with me, sand blasted and painted the spindles and backing plates.

and the calipers got smoothed out and painted!







I know ill wanna upgrade to some bigger cooler stuff later but for now I needed to clean up what I had.


Oh yea got the beater sittin a lil better, rebuilt the rear brakes . and recently picked up a rebuilt disc brake front end with drop spindles.
( thanks scott @ Scotts Super Trucks) for a killer price. thatll be goin in soon.







Two more nights of work , then some 16 hours of driving, first back home then down to spokane for the goodguys show!!! cant wait !!!
