NIIIICE! Glad to hear brother! And thanks for checking the vids out. Im trying to get more content up. Its been pretty hectic lately due to my finace having a hip replacement surgery. Whew! Poor baby. But i stepped in and took care of her. Man you dont realize how important your independence is until you need someone to do everything for you. Im super worn out. Some days 1 maybe two hours of sleep yikes!

I managed to get a little work done. I re-mocked up my Holly Hi ram intake in a glossy paint scheme. I really dig it and will have it professionally polisjed and powdercoated.. I also cleaned up my rockers and prepped em for the Straub Technologies trunion kit, pulled the 862 heads off, cleaned the pistons up and mocked up the ARP head stud kit. I'll be ordering the LJMS Stage 2 twin turbo cam kit and springs/rods and all the gaskets to finish this off. Ready to button it all up... Parts are slowly rolling in..

The respray. I used Eastwood "EXTREME CHASSIS BLACK" Primer and gloss paint. I think it looks amazing. I loved the satin pro tour look as well, but I wan the motor to pop out. The bay walls and firewall will have that powdery satin protour look. All the UMI suspension is high gloss and will tie in with the motor. The frame will be color matched to te car(silver)

Rockers after a nice soak and scrub. They came out really clean. Prepping em up for the trunioun upgrade..

AND THENNNNN. I wemt OCD and blasted em at work along with the pedestals

Installed/mock up with a set of ARP rocker studs..

ARP head stud kit. My block is an early 2004 block and has the 3 different size studs...

The Comp cams trunioun kit and tool. I passed these over to my club bro and will install em in a set of rockers i blasted for him. Hes doing the wiring in my Bu so i wanted to take care of him. The tool makes it SUPER EASY to do. It has a serious little magnet that holds it onto your vise, and the rocker sets down in the machined groove..

Ive hit you guys with enough HTML for a week lol so ill stop here. Ill post some pics/vid of he trunion install later this week.

Thanks for checking back!!
