Keep smilin'

Thanks again Baja, I appreciate your comments.

Thank HN! I'm not too sure about a sticky; thats pretty serious stuff. Your build inspires me and makes me jealous all at once! 6BT crew for the win!

Thank you, it's definitely been a learning experience.

I just went back through trying to find some info on the wheels you have, sorry if I missed it, but if you don't mind can you post the size again and where you got them...thanks!
Thanks man! I think Wimbeldon white is the best white out there fer sure. The wheels are 20x8 steelies from Detroit Steel Wheels. 235/55/20 on front and 285/50/20 on back

Detroit Steel Wheel: Steelies, Baby Moons, Bullets, Beauty Rings

I'm in as well Tim. Looking at your pics and reading what the other guys have said before me reminds me of two old sayings. "Smooth as a baby's but" and "Cool as the other side of the pillow". The 1st one applies already. The second one will apply once you get some more body panels mounted. IMHO. Way cool Tim, way cool.

Thanks guys! It's definitely been a learning experience and tested my capabilities. Wish I could speed it up so I could drive this thing sooner.

Thanks again for the encouragement and comps.

Tim

Steady as she goes amigo.. remember, proceed at the "Speed of right", not the speed of light. Taking your time, as you have been, will pay off in the future. I know that you can see where you want to be, way before its time to be there. The closer I get to finishing part of a project, the harder it is to resist the impulse to rush.. Keeping telling yourself.. "The speed of right"... you cannot go wrong with that..

Is the 6BT the same size as the 4BT but with two
more cylinders added? Like the same bore and all that?
It must be hugeish. As Johnny Depp would say.

Yes, many interchangeable parts. Only difference is the block and the crank. Pistons, rods, and other stuff pretty much the same. Pumps are a little different but share the same architecture.

Been working on lots of stuff. Got the inner fender wells wrapped up finally. Ground the welds, primed them, painted the tops black and the rest of the insides and outsides got Raptor liner. Also primed and painted the Core support. Well, painted the front and did the raptor liner on the engine bay side. Finally got the instrument cluster wrapped up. Since I switched gauges and went with the SpeedHuts, I had to reconfigure my gauge layout. The gauge sizes I originally had were not available with the speed huts so I needed to figure out a way to cover the old and install the new. Basically, I cut the face out of a F600 cluster, wrapped a 3/16 x 1/2 piece of strap around it, tack welded the strap to some sheet metal, then molded the 600 face into it. Finally, Ive been fabbing little stuff like turbo oil returns and what not as well as priming and painting all the little brackets and whatever else I can find.

Gauges look great. Nice touch with the "C"


Mind if I share some pictures with some guys on another forum I am on?

I'm digging the two tone inners, nice touch. The dash is killer.
