Default Indy Ram Restoration

Its been awhile since I have posted anything. I thought I might as well make it a good one. Here are some pictures of the progress so far that I have made in restoring and customizing my Indy Ram over the past couple of months. Its been in the paint shop for about a month now.
I had to take it back in last friday to get a couple areas touched up.

I will continue to work on it untill i get everything installed. The decals will probably go back on this weekend. I was lucky to snatch a NOS set from a guy at work for 50 bucks!! After the fact that I just bought a reproduction for 200 from phoenix graphics. I guess its not a bad idea to have a spare set.

Thanks for the compliments guys!

Im still undecided on what to do with the hood scoop inlet. Leave it wide open or put in a piece of honeycomb grille like whats on the factory grille.
That way a bird or squirrel or whatever kind of animal fits in the hole won't make a nest or something in there.

I will have to post more pictures this weekend after I get the dual exhaust routed through the roll pan and the hood pins installed, since the secondary hood latch isn't hooked up to this hood.

I had an evap. purge solenoid flow error code come up so I will probably be fixing that first before I do the other stuff. Another trip to my second home, Autozone.

Sorry about the quality in advance. These 2 pictures below were taken with my smartphone. I will have to get a better one taken with my SLR after I get the exhaust done. Currently the flip up license plate is on and hiding my hidden drop hitch.

Just to give you an idea what the rear end looks like so far...

Very nice truck...can I ask you, what is the spacing between your stripes?

I like the truck, but I just wasn't comfortable with the factory mirrors so I swapped mine out to a set off a Dakota.

I was able to get the bedliner sprayed and some of the interior painted over the past 3 days. I took off monday, but it didn't seem like the time helped much. I'm very impressed with the results from spraying the SEM Rock-it bedliner. It really helped having my 2 brothers help with the sanding. My arms are still sore though.

Im still fighting with the Evap code P0441. Im going to replace the vapor canister (charcoal filter) next. I noticed a ton of black soot around it. The line going to the purge solenoid looked clean. It still keeps idling super low, and almost eventually dies (unless you give it some gas...until its warmed up). It recently had a new bosch fuel pump assembly installed ( 1 year ago) along with a purge solenoid (this weekend). I have also replaced the TPS, IAC (twice), and the PCV valve in the past year.

If it ain't one thing, its another.
