I like the way the intake came out. Any chance you would be willing to share the part numbers for the elbows and clamps?Few more pics of the intake mount...
This mount worked great for 6 years or so, but just recently sheared at both the upper and lower mounts on some washboard roads between trails... Upgrades are underway....
Thank you. Prior to punching holes in the hood, both the reletively stock grey 85 and the not so stock red 85, both ran at similar temps under similar driving conditions. Since adding the hood vents, the red truck runs noticeably cooler than the grey one...Speaking of cooling, that grill looks good, but I'm surprised it allows enough airflow to cool properly.
Paint and body work just isn't my thing... Good friend owns an auto body and paint shop for those times that it matters. This truck is not one of those times.....I spy dents, orange peel, and no reflection in the hood paint. Throw that POS away and start over!! :flipoff2:
Do I also see a soft top?
Thank you. Me too...I like that dimple died hood

Also where do you get the non-corrugated cardboard for mocking stuff up?
The trick-tools link above is the set I've been using. While they can be used with a draw through bolt, if doing several holes directly next to each other, the flaring is not as consistent as it is when done in the press with a gauge. I'm a picky bastard though...I know I asked someone else years ago how they dimpled the hood (or any panel that can't be put in a standard press). I want to get some dies and a press, but would love to be able to do stuff like this too.
Thank you.Well.....I'm a complete hack. :laughing: Awesome!
Nope. Still got plans of putting an ammo can there...:flipoff2:Killer work, I've gotta soft spot for the extra cabs. Dude ya gotta make a dimple die cover to fill the lower bed panel in front of the rear tire..:flipoff2:
Attention to detail is superb. Killer build!
Thanks guys, we try...Killer work!
