Man you got that ride looking sweet! I need to catch up to you.
Did you ever get the brake problem sorted out?
catch up?! your shoebox is gorgeous. the chop, the frenching etc...
no, i sidetracked myself into figuring out ALL these wiring problems. a mess in itself. you hit a blinker and both taillights blink at same time. also fuel gauge never worked. just noticed the wire is trash for the sending unit. who knows what else. my poor baby is going to be stuck in my garage for at least a week or two
Great job on your car!!!
thanks. i have had my eye on yours too. that thing is beautiful. are you ever gonna put a front bumper on it?
Just saving up to get my bumpers chromed. Thats why its not on yet.
That's one sweet-looking shoe !
thanks buddy! so i am working on finding a reason why my tail lights both blink when i turn on a blinker. and this is how terrible all the wiring is! ugh... also, the worst wire you see here is the fuel sending wire.
BEAUTIFUL CAR!!!I also like the visor!
Order a Rebel Wire kit. Under $150, great quality, everything will work, and no more wire hacks or fire danger!
thanks "forddraggin". i dont see many visors on shoeboxes either. i dig it
This one on the top left?
This header situation is killing me. I dont even think the Sanderson CC2 or CC3's are going to clear the steering. anybody got pictures of how they got around the small block chevy in a shoebox with headers?
Yep, that's it. Price has gone up about $20 since last time I checked, but they are an Alliance Vendor so get your membership and save a few $$$.
Also, I think Sanderson will be your best bet for headers. Raising the engine an inch may make all the difference in the worked too.
Keep us posted on the brakes, I'm interested to find out how you end up fixing it.
ok im posting them now, dont buy anything till you see what i have.
i yet to have them hooked up, but they will be hooked up soon. life gets in the way, i don't have a part number, the guy i got the one from works out of orange county ca. i forget his name?
but i did meet him at gnr's last year, he's a distributor for them.
i really appreciate the pics. now THAT is a tight squeeze. is that an Open header running? i dont see a pipe on it. (and that is really clean engine bay compared to mine! haha.) Those arent the CC2 or the CC3's by sanderson, they look a little different model i think.
Hey Big Creep... Is that the old, tall, skinny, cool, full of energy hippy dude that could weld a butterfly to a cargo ship? If its the guy I'm thinking of I know how to get a hold of him for seven.
yes it is! he's a pretty funny guy too!
no i haven't hooked them up yet. and i dont know the part number, he just told me come over. i did, he handed one to me and said try this one, and it worked!
That guy is AWESOME! Lots of fun to hang out with too! He's a friend of da34guy here, and he's a friend of mine. I'll get a number for ya seven!
wow, i owe you guys a KEG of BEER if we can get this thing ironed out
Make mine Pepsi, LOL.
shit make mine a scrimshaw, just one beer will do, no need for keg. thats what the hamb was made for.
http://northcoastbrewing.com/beer-scrimshaw.htm best beer ever!
Ha, small world. They brew that stuff practicly in my back yard
im planing a trip with my girl. specifically to go there! i google mapped it, looks like a beautiful place to live!
It is a beautiful place as long as it's not foggy
Headers on a lowered shoebox seems to be a creative problem for everyone. haha. this is interesting
