so with a 4th and final "test fit" Joel now has a custom set of headers . I have about 30 hours building these 1 offs .. but I now think I can comfortably build 5Vzfe headers for swaps (NEW product coming)
anyway .. it's off to ceramic coat tomorrow .
Heat shield is not welded yet .. will do that after
Joel brought in his NEW projector headlamps today .. much deeper then the stock lamps , so some sugery needed to be done . passenger side wasnt so bad , just had to do some "mods" to the airbox . move and make a bracket for the A/C relays and build a mount post for the 5V igniter
Drivers side was a little more involved .. because of the fuel canister and battery , but we solved it
Joels back ... tranny problems , diagnosed as sencros. Joel is planning a long Alaska trip this year , so he want his runner in "tip top " shape .. so , we ordered a marlin tranny .
Joel wanted to keep it looking nice , he's saving up for duel transfers , and also 3 link front an rear ? (not positive just yet) as well as full custom hi clearance body . Joel decided he wanted the the cast part of the case blue , so we complied with his wishes ..
we are also up dating some of the engine colors for him .. he wanted a "wrinkle" coat powder on the valve covers .. so all torn down , cleaned , sandblasted , back together and now ready for some powder
