Thanks man. I picked up some z71 fender flares today for $60. They have some scratches but I'm planning on scuffing them up and spraying some bed liner on them. My warranty will be up in probably 6 months and then I'll be looking into a tune.I like it, very simple and clean
Might I also recommend:Got the '08. standard-cab, 3.7L automatic, 52K miles.
They're gonna deliver it to me in Greer on Friday.
The incredible thing for me is I've never been able to have a project vehicle that wasn't my d-d.
And, I have shop space available to me where I'm working up near Chesnee. Never had that before..
Not automotive shop space, no lift, but a huge fab shop with drill press, bandsaw, bench grinder, etc. that I can use evenings and weekends.
I've never had that before.
I am so gonna build a "sport-touring" street truck toy!
Gonna be super-busy with work, but I hope I'll be able to have her done by Spring.
And getting those wheel-wells tubbed is high priority.
Through winter, I gotta..
get wheels and tires
Paint the dash and rear-wall panel in black
Install dynamat and carpet (got rubber mats now)
Build a grille
install (have installed) a QA1 front suspension and Belltech front sway bar
do something with the rear suspension (say no more on that for now)
install some audio
repair the fan motor controls/resistor
install a custom 3rd brake lamp (got a blank one made of Lexan plastic waiting on some LEDs)
install some seats
install low-profile cross-member
install electric windows and power locks
install Redline hood props
install hard tonneau and a Bedrug
install an efan
Congratulations on your new toy also..Might I also recommend:
Tilt switch inside the tailgate
String of weather proof LEDs under the bed rails, hooked to said tilt switch
Tune [get rid of Passlock and torque management]
And the hi/Lo mod for the headlights
Some are very cheap and easy. Most expensive is the tune really. But I have to say; I like the list you've got as well. Congrats on the new toy! Can't wait to see!
As some of you know, I got a new truck myself....ironically an 08 as well.
How's the wheel-well tubbing progressing @Silver_rado09?
I have a call in to Brent, left a message to line up some shop time.
I'm gonna be eager to see your new wheel-wells if I may..
I'm after a '08 standard-cab, on my way to Greensboro to take a look at it in a few minutes. If I can snag it then I'm gonna want to tub the front wheels also, no question about it.
It's great knowing there's a shop in the area to handle that.
@ChevyNOOB Check this link out: http://www.355nation.net/forum/exterior/382-oem-paint-codes.htmlBeen a while since I've done anything to Colleen.. :kiki: But this past weekend I drove down to Florida to pick up some new goodies. Hood, grille, front bumper, mirrors and roll pan. They need a little work, but thankfully only paint. So I may try my hand at some of that duplicolor color match stuff on them before SESM. Does anyone know if it's the Arctic White or Olympic White on our trucks?
Cool deal. That's what I have. Hopefully it'll match up good. White has so many variants.@ChevyNOOB Check this link out: http://www.355nation.net/forum/exterior/382-oem-paint-codes.html
But to answer your question, its WA8624 / 50 Olympic White
Sorry, I'm still around, just extremely busy thanks to my work running us 6 days a week.May as well pull the plug on the Carolina Chapter...
