Distinct04ZQ8 - #BODYBAGD Build

Hey guys, as some of you know my truck has been cut up for a while now and in the hands of Cory Hussey (HHR Customs). I connected with Cory last summer at Northern Showdown up here north of the border and we started making a game plan to get my 04 CC bagged and bodied on 24's.

I'm sure most of you have seen Cory's truck around and admired it as much as me. Really didn't take me long to decide that he was the right man for the job. I made it clear that I was in no rush to get it done and made the trip out to his shop to drop the truck off in Oct. 2015. 1 year later, he has accomplished a lot working on my truck by himself between a full time job and being a family man! Of course, we have run into quite a few challenges (and no doubt still a few more to come) but this is part of the journey.

I do have a build thread over on the Canada site but clearly this is the place to be for everything / anything 355. I will start moving this thread along and get you guys up to speed on where we are at currently. As always, we welcome your input and thoughts on the build as we make a hard push over the next few months to get it show ready for 2017.

We found out that by raising the UCA's that high caused binding issues with the MMW parts when going through the suspensions cycle. I had to cut down the EPIC mounts 2". Currently I am still having issues with the suspension geometry with this front setup. Tires camber positively when lowering causing the tires to hit the fender really bad, even with the front clip narrowed 2" already. May have to start over with this front suspension and build a custom setup unfortunately. More to come.
BridgestonePHM9 that is a very good observation. I may have to revisit the mounting of the calipers and run slider bolts instead of a fixed bolt. It is odd as the wilwood radial caliper mounts do not look like they use slider style pins.

Hey sorry guys been a bit slow the last few months. Been moving shops as well as balancing my full time job, building 3 trucks as my side business and raising a young family is taking a toll on me. The bed is about halfway done, and the interior metal work has commenced as well. I will be back on it full steam ahead come the start of july. I am horrible at posting pictures so hopefully will can post them up for me.
Hey guys, me and will have been talking and its finally time to start updating a bit on here. The build has been back on since the new year. Making a big push to get the thing finalized before it gets blown back apart for powdercoating and undercoating. Truck will go for paint later in the year. Here are some pics as of the last few weeks. More to come.

Rear seats have been converted to buckets. They need to be reshaped and rewrapped when the interior gets redone. The bed is about 80% complete. Few small things left to finish up on it. Cab is all seam sealed and awaiting lizard skin interior coating.
Inside of the tailgate is currently being shaved, but with full functionality of the oem handle access. The V8 swap is most of the way complete. Exhaust will be wrapped up soon, along with all the small misc parts to make it run. We are in talks with current performance about the wiring situation.
