Looking good James. A word of caution. Make sure your aftermarket bezel doesn't fit tight and put pressure on the outside of the 3.5 inch touch pad. It will make it go wonky like mine is doing. They are pressure sensitive.

Thank you, Zach. And thanks for the heads up. This is the first I have heard about that issue. Would you mind posting a pic of your bezel and it's mounting location.

The 6.86" Pro Dash came yesterday, so I was doing a little mock up today. It looks as though everything is going to fit without too many headaches :ROFLMAO: .

I had to sit the Sniper Stealth on there just to see it. I started getting the Taylor plug wires ready for the custom length/routing I am going to do, but I'm waiting on some plug wire separators to come in. The 408 is looking pretty good. I have a couple of other detail items in the works.

The weather has sucked here for several days, and I was not able to get as much done on my days off. I'm going to have a 4 day weekend this week so I'm hoping to get the plug wires fitted, and get the engine & transmission mated together.

Detroit Axle front hubs for the Blazer brake conversion. I had a pair of pretty nice junkyard units, but decided to get these. They come with the o-ring, and dust caps, and a 10 year warranty. I got the pair through my employer for $74 shipped.
