Re: project "WILD THING"

I can't wait to see the finished product! I'll bet you will really enjoy it.

Something else I thought about....if you felt like building another...with that quality it would do well at Barrett-Jackson/Scottsdale!

Just be methodical about how you are doing it and take good notes. Try to get everything routed to where you want it prior to connecting the wires to the proper component. If you change where a wire is going (ie labeled), write it down on the schematic. Try to take the view of wiring as if it were plumbing, your just trying to get the electricity in the correct places, . Make sure you have really good grounds, especially

chassis to motor
motor to cab
cab to chassis

(grind paint off is necessary)

Good luck!

Re: project "WILD THING"

This is one gorgeous truck you have there, definetly the nicest X-Cab I have seen, great job on that. The color scheme is great, just an all around nice truck. You have to be proud of yourself for building this thing!!!!

Re: project "WILD THING"

Your skills are top notch, it's great to see someone taking pride in their work.
Your truck should be featured in a magazine. WOW!!!!!!
Whatever happened to your 70 GMC you had in highschool? What size of lift and tires are you running on current truck?

Someday my skills might be half as good as yours.
