Wow Wes that looks great. The hood looks amazing with the stance of the truck. I still want to see you paint the front bumper to match.

Two thumbs up from me!

Bushwhacker-Thanks man....If I keep the Luverne rear bumper, I'll be getting a matching chrome front bumper....If I roll pan it, it'll get the body color treatment....the matte finish silver is FUUUUGGGLLLLYYY.....

It would look good either way, I just think "sport trucks" like what you're making should have color matched bumpers.. but that's just me! Either way you go the truck will look gorgeous.

You ever use Seafoam Cole Train?

Yup....Yesterday...Seems to idle a tad better (100-150 rpms lower, around the 850-ish mark..)....which is good...My truck idles around 900-1,000....W-T-H....Checked everywhere for vacuum leaks, found none...Except a issue that when I spray the #6 injector area with carb cleaner/starter fluid, it just about dies....Sounds electrical to me....

But the overall drivability hasn't been compromised...So idk...

Gonna do a another Seafoam run...Just to make sure...

Where are you running that Seafoam through? I just put a bottle in my gas tank and it makes a noticable difference in fuel economy and the engine tick (lifter?).

Good looking truck! Can't say that I would have swapped the interior in the same direction as you (red to grey I would have), but it probably looks pretty good with red gauges instead of green though.

Thanks man....As said earlier, I already had the maroon....And let's just say the PO wasn't the most caring sort of fellow about the cleanliness...And the old headliner had holes an stains galore.....It also leaves me open to black as a paint option.....

Seems around here maroon is a VERY rare color option.....So yea....Plus it had sentimental value, as it was the interior out of Ethel, my 1994 truck....Pics of it are in my albums.....

Hey Wes, I know we should.. It's tricky with both of us working though.

Want to know something blood curdling scarey? Me and the girlfriend both had dreams last night WE HAD A BABY!

I'm not even going to LOOK at her hard! hahahaha
