YOU, my friend, have inspired me...to never even think of selling my truck again until it is an absolute SOLID must...Your truck when you got it, looked halfway decent to ok...but now, this little beauty, is like a diamond that was once covered in dust. Excellent Body, Engine, Exhaust, excellent everything! I'm a v8 guy, but this little beauty, im still liking. Amazing work...sorry for rambling

Haven't been able to drive it yet, thermostat housing has been off waiting on the heat pipe neck. The turbo is physically attached but not plumbed to the intake yet.

Yea well, I've always liked them and it reminds me of the wreckers I started towing in.

Anyways I powder coated the heater neck and thermostat housing to protect from rust and the housing blistered while curing, oh well I was never going to win any beauty contests

I also installed the fittings for the tranny cooler lines, so the leaks are gone!

With those done I was able to start him up and go for a quick ride, here's a updated quick video.

razor backs are definitely a love or hate item. my brother took his off, and we brought it to a swap meet and i was being mobbed by people in the parking lot who wanted it...while we were driving in! we had a mini auction for it, so many people wanted it.

i say...whatever!

take that thermostat neck off and ill sandblast it, i have a few small parts i need to do this week. anything else (small, dont have time to do big stuff) you might want done? i should be able to pop a tire off for you tomorrow if you want to swing by and grab it and you could dump parts off.

I appreciate the offer but, for now it'll stay that way. I plan to pull the motor possibly next spring to go through it after I get the turbo relatively dialed in. Maybe bore it out some, put in some forged slugs and swap in a different cam. We'll see what the pocket can afford at that time, I'll also worry about making things pretty then.
