Can you manually select gears and it stays there? Or will it shift past a certain RPM?

What did you ever figure out about your mast setup and the E38 setup? I have the stock harness and have been contemplating how to make everything work. Now that I am almost finished with the suspension it is time to make it run. So it is time to dedicate some time to figuring that out!

You can manually select gears and it will stay there all the way to redline or you can turn on the safety shifts that will force an upshift or down shift if you exceed certain rpms and don't shift yourself.

I have gotten the mast ecm/6l80 to work together for tap shifts but there is really no reason to spend all the money for a Mast M90 and the harness if you already have a stock harness you can cut down (or have someone cut down) and you have an e38 ecm or can get one fairly easily. If you can't get an e38 I can get one for you.

If you are not in a rush ( I am heading out for KOH soon) let me know if you need an ECM or not, whether you want the harness cleaned up and what year/vehicle 6l80 you have and I can let you know how much it would be to get it all setup. Do you have HP Tuners by chance? If I (or anyone) tunes the 6l80 you would need to send in the TCM.

Got my armor back from powder today. It turned out awesome. I am very happy with it!



Good look at the color.



Gonna be pimp on my new set of wheels!!

Also got a start on mounting up my fuel cell. The Artec brackets make it a breeze.

Starting to come together quit nicely. Glad to see your making some progress after all the problems you've been having. Keep up the good work, can't wait to see this thing completed.

This.

As weird as it sounds... I don't care about scratching it up. We offer any of our powder coat in spray can form so you can touch up the more abused spots when that time comes.

I didn't know it could be bud. It was my understanding it could allow rust to get under it. Thanks for the enlightenment. Definitely lookin sharp.

It is my understanding that powder doesn't sit on top of the metal to allow rust to get in where the scratches are. It is bonded to the metal when you bake it. So when you scratch it you should only form rust where the bare metal would be.

The process our powder guy goes through is really legit. He chemically dips the wheel and has an aluminum oxide blast after. That's before we ever weld to anything. He does the same process after he gets it back so the metal is always super clean before starting. That's the key to most anything. Prep.

I've had buddies do bed liner on their armor before and after seeing the results I'd never go that route because rust can get under there like you are talking about. I'm glad I went the powder route because I didn't have to smell the paint fumes in my bedroom for a week.

Man this thing is looking really nice. R u freaking out yet? R U just itching to pack up the cooler and gear for a nice summer weekend with the rig, on the trails with the fam?

Powder really stays looking like fresh paint for years,,,,,so the scuffs and scrapes really don't look bad,,,just looks like you use it.

Its cheaper for me to have it powder-coated than painted but yes its harder to sand out. I did a lot of my own powder-coating myself in my garage. I can also paint but prefer to powder-coat.

hey Dookey,,,since you have a PC shop right there maybe you couldanswer a question for me. I would like to have a better powder-coating gun but I can only find really cheap ones or really expensive professional systems. Do you know if there is an intermediate type home powder-coating system? I wouldn't mind buying a used professional gun either. Let me know if you have any info

I can ask my powder guy what they use the next time I am down there. I'm not familiar with the equipment that they use.

This pics are awesome, other than weld spatter of course, I've always wondered; can taking pictures of welding hurt the camera at all? By the light?

No, but looking at the picture w/o eye protection can burn the retinas.

^ Agreed. Were they taken through a welding lens or some type of filter?

This is an awesome build but, I have lost track. How many sets of wheels has it gone through without leaving the garage?
