Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

Re: off it goes

The lack of wires on that thing is almost spooky. Everywhere you expect to see wire loom on an engine, there's nothing!

Re: off it goes

The best part for me is that it LOOKS stock, just lowered. But its FAR from that.

thanks for the compliments...I appreciate that considering there's a lot of badass builds out there. A lot of it comes down to personal taste and style, I've always tried to keep a subtle factory look on my vehicles and not change too much from what makes us love these things, which was GM styling.

Re: off it goes

A lot of nice work on the inner fenders also! Did you run the brake lines down the frame rail and the wiring thru the fender?

Re: off it goes

we moved the hood spring from on the rad support up to the hood to give the support a cleaner look. Then we machined out a billet cup to catch the spring when the hood closes to keep from marking any paint.

Re: off it goes

Just a suggestion...

When your truck is complete, find a similar year, perfectly restored, bone-stock truck. Park the two side-by-side, and do a photo shoot highlighting the differences. For example, it would be very interesting to see a side-by-side shot of the stock radiator support, and of your radiator support.

I was thinking the same. There is so much work in that rad support. It is so clean and perfect. They were never designed to look that good,
