    WHAT...Just hubcaps today? Dang, you're slipping (grin) I expected a full stainless exhaust, the cab mounted and a complete custom interior completed...HA!

    Actually, the caps look pretty trick. Are they hard to get on and off?

    im digging the hub caps ...
     
  3. because of the comments made being to fast i thought i'd slow down a bit :)
    the plumbing is a bit of time consuming so not so much visable progress ;)

    on the hub cabs they are pretty easy to remove i can reach the studs at the back tru the large holes in the wheels

    Great progress on the truck and your dash turned out great. I'm really liking your plumbing management. Are you making your own clips or can you buy them over the counter? I'm getting ready to start some plumbing also and have been looking for a clean clip set-up.

    Keep up the great work.
     
  5. Hi the clips/clamps are an over the counter product, search for hydraulic pipe clamps.
    The ones i used are from stauff but there are many more brands that have them. Parker has them too.

    First of all, are you on speed?;) I've been a part of a few builds like this , and this has to be one of the fastest:eek: and nicest builds I've ever seen:D. I can't wait to see the final product! Keep up the good work.
     
  7. no no drugs for me :D

    Looks good. BUT, I now have a new "speed" theory...this is really just a scale model. :)

    genius. Might not need mufflers with this design. It might baffle itself.

    You really impress me corvette. I know it can't be cheap to get all that Detroit iron to Amsterdam. Love your build. Keep up the progress.
