Can't wait to see this thing painted I love the look of the ss/t trucks (especially the rims). My truck started out as basically an ss/t without the stripes and rims. Now it's getting a 5.7 Hemi so it's not so close to an ss/t anymore lol

ya I'm not too far from you, I'm in Napanee .
I just got all the stripes off not sure what I'm going to do with them yet. not sure I'm going to paint them on or put vinyl on.

I bought a parts truck and it has a cherry bomb cat back system on it, so that is on my truck now.

lot work ahead of me.

Nice I used to have a cherry bomb glass pack on mine before the flowmaster and it sounded good. I know it's a ton of work redoing a truck I'm still just finishing my motor swap in mine and I've gone nuts with cleaning and reprinting everything in my engine bay. But all the work is worth it when it's all done!!

it does sound great. I do have to do valve cover gaskets. you can smell the hot oil and can see it down the side of the motor.

I just got in from finishing sanding the whole truck.
