i think yer abusing your mod powers by posting the same thread on two boards...j/k

that looks really, really good. has kind of a So-Cal prerunner thing going. are you gonna paint it or just clear-coat it? keeping the brushed-sheet-steel look would be cool, but the glare on somedays would require you to wear a welding mask when driving just to protect your eyes .

BTW, my thoughts of an SAS have been "rekindled" and i'd like to talk prices. if you could, please check your PMs.

thanks and nice work

98 Taco, good call on the SAS. *Don't throw a dime at your IFS.

Brook, *The dash is sweet, but way more "aluminum racecar" than some sexy, cadillac stye, burlwood inlays would be. * I think you should come to terms with your savage distaste for wood...

AlaskaToy,
i am getting excited about possibly being able to take this truck out for some real wheeling and not being compromised by the weak IFS. you better watch out if i do this, you might have to come down from SquareBanks to compare setups

Brook,
i'll hear from you when i hear from you, no rush.

just let me know man. If it can be brocken down enough, might be able to through it on a plane up here, paint it for you what ever ya want send er back.

Im thinking two tone. Tube work painted to match the the cab. Then brush the alum, tape out a very thin flame pattern to it. Paint it glass black. The flames would leave bare brushed aluminum. Clear coat over it all.



looks really good brook.

Yawn, if I didn't have a life I would spend 2 months on my dash too...LOSER!

Really, looks good. It is nice removing the stock stuff so you can build things to suit your needs.

Im thinking Black tubes, and Black panels. Or Black tubes, and dark grey panels. Not sure though. I might just spray paint them to see what I like, then send everything out to get bead blasted before I paint. I might also put a season on everything before I get too carried away with paint because I never know when I might decide to change something.

Made the hinges today. It will fold down, and sit level, to make use of the cup holders at each end of the lid...

I think you should paint the tubes orange and the rest Flat Black. THE GREAT PUMPKIN comes to mind.....lol

That lid is really smooth. I like it.
