    Fam I really appreciate that!!Cant wait to bend some corners with you and watch them jawz drop when we pull in at the shows-cutouts open, hoods popped and sounds thumpin.. :wink:



    Almost done with the wells. Just waiting for the primer to fully dry before dry sand/wet sand starts. This is the final stage of "filler primer" and I'll dry block sand em with 600 grit and then the "sandable primer" gets sprayed and the wet sanding from 1000 grit, 1500, 2000 starts. Like I said, this is not the ideal way to do this, but its working great for me. When I do the SS wells, Imma shoot em with a gun....

    I also cleaned up my jeep shaft the homie Bronson picked up for me... Taped off a couple areas and sand blasted it. I primered and painted the center section black, and then clear coated the entire shaft. I liked how the bare metal looked after it was blasted. Came out decent...

    All clean and ready for paint...

    I cleared the blasted ends and painted the center. I may opt for the Detroit speed shaft later

    Played around with the UMI drag bar and Mocked it up. I also pulled the stock lines off the calipers and mocked up the Kore3 lines... Im gonna use my pipe cutter and pick up a flare kit to do a double flare on the cut down line..Frog tape is just to protect the finish while handling the parts...

    Kore3 lines...

    I'll get the flare kit later today and cut the lines and attempt to flare em. Wont know how they turned out til the rear is in the car. I should be good tho. I have some 3/16 tube and can practice on it. Wish me luck :D

    Thanks bruh!! Well we must be doin somethin right if they hatin!! HAHA! 80z UP!! WeCOMIN'!!!


    I installed the ARP main cap stud kit on the 7.5 also. I just followed the instructions off of TA Performances website. Pulled out the trusty torque wrench and got er done...
    Did one cap at a time. I just "broke" the stock bolts loose, back out one bolt and installed the ARP setup. Used a lil blue loc-tite-Torqued to 10ft lbs and then the washer and nut. Then I did the other bolt. Same steps. Afterwards, I stepped the torque up to 60 ft lbs on each lock nut.

    Done!

    I also swapped the stock bolts for the backing plate to some grade 8 fine thread bolts. Washer, lock washer, nyloc nut and loc-tite..I needed a lil longer bolt cuz Im running that home made e brake bracket.

    [​IMG]

    Found my pipe/tubing cutter and I can start cutting the stock brake lines to size. I'll hit autozone up for and OEM flare kit and give it a try.
    Thanks for checking back! :wink:
