I gathered up a few brake items for the rig, I'm going to run wheel brakes, and I Have decided to run a pinion brake as a parking brake. If I don't X the idea all together... ( if I push through my wheel brakes, they'll get yanked for my pinion brakes)
Patooyee was grateful enough to cut me some brake adapters to mount rotors to my rear hubs... It's a real Close design to his pinion brake the cuts. He was talking the idea down for the size tire I'm going to run (53's) with the size dia. Rotor I ended up going with 12.19... A 14" rotor would be a better match for the size tire.
Only plus I have working with me, are they are a billet 6 piston caliper to keep down on caliper flex (4 piston superlite) and to have a better bite. The 47 vane make them a heavier rotor, but they'll cool better if I hit them a lot.
I know pirate isn't much for body lifts, so I'm proud to anounce I'm taking my 3" Performance Accesory BL off, in place of a 2" billet aluminum JC Customs BL
I gave him a few measurements and a picture of my composit puck, and he had mine cut that same night... Pretty cool. I downer is they're a little bit heavier.
So I had him polish it a little and throw his logo on it.
He's got a new CNC machine and is down to work with me on new stuff, so the 4x4 is going to start having Rockwell pieces cut. Starting with this side inspection cover plate. I was messing around in the garage and cut this out of some scrap I had laying around... (Downfall is it's 3/8" thick and heavier/uglier than what he can do)
Back in its mall crawler former glory days, I had a cut through with 4) 10" speakers (was going to do 8) but I lost interest... Fast forward 10yrs and I've lost interest in all that gay shit and actually want to hit some holes hard with a fully functional 4x4...
So I plated up the back of the cab with the tool box lid I previously posted.
Back seat still sits over
All bolted up, also ended up using aluminum bolts. Had these from a previous project, figured they'd work out pretty good.
I know this is kind of silly but during my Raman noodle days while I was paying off the bling, I shaved the chunk down until I got tired of grinding. Had one taken apart and cleaned up and it was what I could work on.
