Alright! First update now that I actually HAVE some mods to put on the truck. I had the pleasure of heading down to the border today to pick up my shipment of the first round of mods Unfortunately my hood hadn't shown up yet so I'll have to drive down again to get that, of course it arrives in one more day, which happens to be the day I fly back to work. c'est la vie.



One interesting thing is I ordered the McGaughy's 2/4 spring lowering kit, while that kit did come complete, I was also sent a RH drop spindle as well... I wonder if I can get them to ship me the LH one then I'll have the option to go lower if I ever decide to.

But, here is the piece de resistance! If I ever get bored of calling it the green mamba I can always start calling it the angry goat. Say hello to my new grille badge, this thing is 14" across and exceptionally well painted. I will be building a custom deep mouth grille and this bad boy will be sitting front and center.

It's cool...

I have the ugly duckling in the family. But by god I will make sure that thing is shined up and GLEAMING everyday so if there's just an off chance that I might stop by to visit, or your running down to the border to grab parts and I'm already there waiting for goodies you'll get a sharp sun beam right in your eyes bouncing off my bright blue boring paint job. It haunts you and eventually you'll be driving down the street past a McDonald's and BOOM there it is again and you'll just flip your lid going "Dammit there it is again!! Typical fricken American with his shined up Chrome and bright Blue boring paint at a damn McFatty's!! Everywhere I go it's like a screwed up version of where's Waldo where it's damn easy to find him







But really I'm looking forward to the build of your new truck, and thank you Shawn for pointing me in the right direction
The only thing wrong with all that is one word... chrome. I can't stand that stuff, too much work to keep it looking good. Plus, pretty much every truck out this way is black or blue with every conceivable part that can be chromed, done to the tits.

I don't know the part number. Part of my deal for the truck was they take the 20s off and put 17s on it. They just happened to pull them off of a '13. They thought I was crazy taking the 20s off because everyone out here wants the 20s, but having the 22s from the old truck and wanting to keep my $1800 worth of snow/ice tires it just made sense.

Hahaa I see what your saying, I hate it when people do the over the top chrome with the pillars and the fuel door and tailgate handle, chrome visors it's very easy to make it tacky. Maybe that's why there's no DWB trucks in the states, they kept them all in Canada lol

That grill is going to look bad ass with the angry goat in there. You should bring it down to Gatty next year

Won't the part number be cast on the inside/back of the wheel?

It's been in the -20C lately and today warmed up to -7C, so it's been too cold/wet to spend any time crawling around under the vehicle. I can have a look when I'm back in town from work.

Alright, no photos this round since there's nothing to show. I've been contacting vendors left right and center to get the parts I want for more of this build. MGH has agreed to build me a tranny which I'll be fine tuning this summer before the major engine build in the fall.

I contacted billet tech about getting some parts done in a green anodized finish, they DON'T do green, however they steered me towards speedlogix who buys BT stuff and does their own anodizing and engraving, and they do green! I have placed an order with them for a bunch of parts in a "near" green with envy finish that should look good with the SSG.

Also got a hold of AAC for halos for the '13 projectors and they say they have something that will fit nicely. So as soon as I hear back there will be an order placed for the rings and a few other additional lighting needs.

A set of HIR2 55w hids will be coming from retro solutions shortly because I want to get these headlights done ASAP. I even bought some SSG paint to play around with inside the housings.

And lastly, ordered a diy hydro graphics kit to try some small stuff and get a feel for working with it before I do a bunch of stuff with snakeskin graphics. Just need to see how well colors come through the prints I ordered.

That's all for now.

Lol, I love it, all the truck parts and mods I can think of, and everyone focuses on the hot women in front of a viper.... yeah, I've come back to look at them too. They're like milk, they do the body good.
