Whoa Dopamine! You've been making some nice progress, getting that black beast of yours looking real home-y. Leaf spring pictures make it seem much less daunting. That cabinet looks great too! Keep feeding that gold fever of yours and keep up the good work while you're at it! Also kudos to your pops!

Legal? yes.
I'd keep it more low key though.

Had my back turned when grinding luckily the wind was blowing up towards me so I smelt it in time. disaster adverted...I turn in sprinklers before any grinding now.

Got these wood floors from my brother in law for free, was going to use them but realized how dumb it would be, started to lay some leveler but floors are just too out of level so I got rubber & im much happier with it.

The last bit of my performance modifications cant do much more. I do need to make a hood scoop so I can get some cold air instead of sucking in hot engine air, beats the whole purpose of cold air intake... I have to make some support brackets.

From the suggestion from Goatherder,, I am finally sending in my power control module to DP-Tuner for a re-flash hopefully it makes a difference...

NO MORE PERFORMANCE UPGRADES...

you cant flash that yourself with a bully-dog or such where you can run different tunes for different trips?

I love the idea of rubber floors.. im thinking about yanking the floors in my carpenter and insulating / replacing.. Ill need to find a good quality rubber floor to put down.. what are you using?

I could but i really dont want to spend $1k on something im not going to use as much.
I purchases a garage floor mat roll, it can in 7'1/2"x 14' so it was perfect size to cut to shape. it is 2.5 mm thick i was sceptical about the thickness but with the pads layed out im am satisfied i need to put trimming on all the edges cause i suck at cutting straight lines. i paid $120. for it

I really really wish i layed this down before i put my walls up but like most i wasent sure on what i wanted.
It is starting to get hard to snap a good picture angle in this shorty. Rubber bext to a dime. Hope that helps on a thickness ref. It isnt too thick but it fits my needs.

Thanks,

I forgot to mention I purchased (2) 100ft rolls of this traffic master 3 in 1 underlayment that I doubled up on under my rubber roll mat.

I can't cut a straight line to save my life maybe one day I will learn to use a straight edge. luckily my trimming will do a nice cover up.

Thanks, it feels like it has been taking forever to finish but it is almost their.


My bumper has been a pain in the a$$. The front frame is bent so it took some cursing & yelling along with some shims here & their it is good now.

I just need to go take the pole to a shop to have it bent, grab another construction sigh for another skid plate, make some holes, good thing they are an abundance.
