That's very interesting, but can you change colors?

Negative but they offer them in other colors

Haven't updated this in a long time so I'm sure I'm forgetting many things. I put exterior door handles and locks back on. Never cared for the shaved doors and poppers. Put a factory set of black seatbelts in and got rid of the grey Monte Carlo belts someone put in there. I added a NSS since it would start in any gear and someone just twisted the wires together with a wire nut. Added backup lights and a reverse light switch. I changed out the single headlights to dual headlights and while I was at it put LED's in. Not a huge fan of the single 6054 lamp look. The exhaust was butchered and had ugly wide mouth chrome tips. The passenger side was run under the crossmember so I fixed all of that mess and redid the exhaust over the crossmember with new tips. I added a vapor canister since someone removed that as well and just left the hose hanging there. Of course someone also removed the AC because well ya know that robs horsepower ::) Anyway so I put AC back in it. I decided not to use any of the original stuff that was still there. Glad I did because the Evaporator had a hole in it and was jam packed with a mouse nest. I went with a sanden 508 compressor and made my own hoses, new liquid line, accumulator, pressure switch, evaporator, orifice tube, condenser and compressor. I still have some other things to do to it but I wanted to go through the whole truck and get all the things "undone" from prior molesters.

Nice ride and I like the way those gauges turned out.

I haven't been good about updating my own stuff I've been so busy. Pinky got some love again along with a posi, rebuilt the carburetor and fine tuned the timing. I took her out after the rain washed away the salt and broke in the posi :)

I really like Pinky! Posi is always nice!!

Was wondering how you like those Intellitronix gauges now that they have been in there for several years.

They are the last set I'll buy. Dakota Digital makes quality stuff, so I'll stick with them.
