came home to a package from KeepitClean, went ahead and put the new compressor power in, love the size of it. Now that it's in I can decide how I want to layout the other 4 air buttons. Also ordered up 20 of the 3/8's cushion clamps for cleaning up all the airline etc.

And just ordered up the upper tube piece from K&N so I can smooth and paint it. I already have a powdercoated tube from the MAF to the air filter. need this to clean up and finish off that aspect.

Alot of serious cash/tedius work going into this truck.

I've seen you around on the interwebs for quite some time, and know your sig. But never really took the time to check out your truck.

Wish i would have sooner, looks great man.

Thank you very much. Eventually i intend on taking the truck to just a cab, tubbing the cab for 20's in front, swapping in a built LSx, beefing up the 4l60E and running a wider wheel out back. when I do that i'll be doing a lot of the smaller stuff and details, but thats for another time and another garage lol.

I do have this pic of some of the pieces coming together. the stitching will be in an orange that is spot on my striping on the flames.

small jegs order arrived yesterday. Got some more sanding and priming done. Looks like at least the column pieces will be in color.
Mike (back_in_black) was able to locate the correct part number and part for my auto shifter boot dilema. (Thanks again mike!)

yeah, i think it'll be super close to the oem size which is fine, I'm redoing the headliner eventually anyways. just figured I'd have all the pieces at once (for once)

I'm really excited to see how that push button panel looks when installed, and how much you like it/well it works.

Yeah, I set it in place, and took a few pics, but they turned out horrid. Going to get it wired in this weekend if all goes as planned (family)

So the last weeks or so have been pretty much full of family stuff. Mother in law is remarrying this monday....(oh thats a fun story...) so between that and work, little time has been able to be devoted to the trucks in general.

Once i get the wheels/tires set on the sierra, which goal is this weekend. I can get the switchplate in. All other pieces are waiting on painter, who has 2 more bikes and a random grandpa cutlass to knock out before he can spray my stuff, which is no biggy. Seats SHOULD be done in the next weeks, the lady doing them had a death in the family. Once i get the seats back, I'll really be in go mode, but would prefer to only be waiting for the seats at that point lol. I'm missing a show this sunday with the sonoma that I really wanted to take it to, but I'll live.
