Re: Blackbird

Ok so not such a big update but I did get her fired up today. Brake lines..done, fuel line...done, all fluids filled and she is wired. Air system works like a charm and is calibrated.

Re: Blackbird

Right on lots of progress! Will this one receive the same style bed floor treatment as your 65? All these trucks with cool steering wheels! Is that a Deluxe horn button also? Where can I buy one of those? Keep them pics coming!

Ya same floor plan, I'm going to cut the tubs different so I can use all the same wood this time.

The new exo mount is awesome, have you seen it? The compressors are fully rubber mounted, very cool.

Ya it's a tough call. The compressors are pretty quiet with the Exo. I guess it depends on how you want your engine bay to look.

Re: Blackbird

electric compressors tend to be a little bit more reliable over time and are less maintenence
