Wow, I didn't realize how bad I was behind. Forgive the mix of cell phone photos. Its been all I could do to keep up with the old dude and the shop work load.

First some refined inner fenders were in order. This time out of aluminum to help shave a bit of weight off the front. There are a few revisions in these photos so if something looks a bit different one to another, its probably Dad scraping a set and moving to a fresh start for one reason or another.








Moving onto getting all the boost tubing mounted. I opted for stainless over aluminum this time for reliability compared to my previous builds. The goal is that the truck will be Dad's daily so a few things like this are acceptable for the peace of mind if give if you hit a road gator, or small animal that will roll up under the truck and screw something up.






With all the items we need to hook to vacuum or boost references we had to cook up this manifold to have them all functional. Waist gate, Blow off, Boost controller, MAP sensor, Boost Gauge, and Vacuum booster but only one large port on the intake.




Next we finally decided to just dump the whole front core support system and just start over. It was just easier that way for this project. We have a small ish radiator but we have a very large oil cooler with an oil thermostat as well to prevent it from over cooling but we can bump that down a bit if we need to cool the engine off a bit more. The new ZR1 has a smaller radiator than this so we're not too worried about over heating. The main goal was to block off as much area and force air through the radiators. We might do some brake cooling as well with all the extra real estate under there.

The next thing I wanted to look into was reducing drag and wind noise and the front cross member, sway bar, and frame tubes were a perfect thing to cover up to stop the harsh wind noise from hissing over the sharp edges of these components so Dad started working on a noise pan. I think we're also going to do a bit more of a belly pan as well when we get it a bit further along.






Finally after having her on the ground for a while I realized how much work we've been doing around the shop instead of on the truck so I snagged these for guys who are interested to know what the low stance will look like and this is about it.





We're getting ready for new toys so the truck is getting a new home in the shop. We should have it ready to rock shortly and I can get back onto the wiring to get her fired up for the first time.

And anyone who want's an easy link to all the photos and just wants to flip through them you can click here. https://gallery.nerdrods.com/Projects/03_D3/08/

Left Friday the 14th, and just got back.

Something followed me home. Can you guess what it is?

Playing hard to get works for the ladies, thought I might try it.

CNC for sure. I don't drive into the great frozen north in the winter for just anything. Seriously, you crazy fuckers who look at snow on the ground and say its a nice day are fucking insane. But not your regular vanilla stuff like mills, lathes, or tables. No, I am the proud owner of a new Dragon A400, CNC 3D Tubing Plasma Cutter.

She also will make being parts easier as she will mark up tubing with bend data as its being cut with a simple sharpie attachment. Coming soon, custom bike frames!

I'll let you know when I grow up.

Once I finish this tiny house project and have a nice place to call my own I'll be more envious of myself.
