Small interior touch

Since I went to the effort to paint and clear the dash and gauge trim. I felt it would be silly not to color match the aftermarket stereo adapter. So it was sanded lightly using 400 grit, then given two coats of plastic primer followed by two coats of color and 4 coats of clear as this will be bumped and fingered constantly while the stereo is being used.

Will it fit?

Today I dropped the engine/transmission combo into the truck for the first time to see if it would fit. I was surprised at how well it actually does fit. I was able to position the engine lower and further back than the factory engine position. This will allow for better weight distribution, which in turn will help handling performance.

Throwing down some paint for the first time

After months of stripping the truck down of every nut and bolt under the hood, and in the interior of the cab, the time has come to lay down some color! For this I will be using Duplicolor’s ‘Paint Shop’ series. It comes pre-mixed and read to spray right out of the can. The color is called ‘Sublime Green Pearl’, it is reminiscent of the Mopar green, with a slight yellow pearl element to it. It will be accented with a matte black hood stripe and matte black rumble stripes. Read more
