Before the install, I will start a build thread. I'll keep track and take pictures of everything, the tear down and the install.

Well, the crate is $2300.
I do need 8 new injectors I have yet to price, I'll be going with 703s.
Plenum gasket kit, $135/shipping included.
I'll be using kolaks full ignition upgrade, $250-300.
Couple gaskets, exhaust manifold etc.

I may replace the header panel while I'm at it, it's cracked from a front end accident by the PO.

Finally fixed my windows, for now. We'll see if any other wires turn up broken. Here's my rant about it.

Power Window Pains

Finally found the wire after over looking it several times, spliced it up!

Capped it, taped it and now I have windows again

I also got my new Kor radiator support in since I bent the old one. I'll throw that thing on their tomorrow.

Got new rad support on, I painted the bottom part blue. I dont think I like it blue. Oh well it'll probably get scratched off eventually anyways.

Wasted $

Been wasting money on the stupid dana 35. Oh well, I just need her back on the street.

I'm replacing wheel bearings and pinion bearings. Not a big job, but i've spread the task out waay too long. She's been sitting like this in my garage for a few weeks now.



Hopefully will have her on all fours soon.

Thanks man!
I spray painted my stock waffle rims in my garage, the end product wasn't great honestly, but it helped some. I'd suggest plastidipping your rims if you want to go black, that way you can remove it if you change your mind.

As for the LEDs in the cab I actually bought lights from autozone and spliced them in, however, I would suggest instead buying led bulbs off of superbrightleds.com (this is for a 95, not sure about other years) as the 'splice' way is less reliable, plus the bulbs off that site are around 5x brighter.

If you wanna do the dashboard lights look read this thread
