Two new things in this picture.


Image

1) I just received my new vanity plates. They fit the Silverado better than the V's plates.

2) You can't see it but I installed the Pop&Lock system on my tailgate. Now the tailgate locks and unlocks with the drivers door,
just like BP's RAM, his came with his truck. Took about 6-8 hours, it was a solo install, old guys are slower but persistent.

Nice shine on her, Fred. I can see all your well-groomed acreage in the tailgate. By the way, what color is the new ride? I can't be sure from the photos I've seen. Pure black? Dark blue? ...

Color it BLACK! When it's dirty it's just another truck,
BUT when the Silverado is clean it's awesome!

While I was sitting at a stop light last week,
I looked in my rear view mirror and saw a gal
taking a picture of "OH YEAH!". Fun continues. :D

I like the plates and decals. It's original, fun, but very tasteful.....IMHO.

All in all, very well done!

I'm desperate to find something to post. Just give me a roll of striping tape and look out.
These snow tires are from my old red truck. I didn't think the red striping would look good
on a black truck so I removed it, but the wheels looked really bland even for snow tires.
So I used a black strip to help. The sensors are ready to be installed.

Looking forward to the real snow.

I never liked garage door openers clip to the sun-visor,
had one for the house and one for the back garage. So...

Love youtube
2017-0303 OverheadConsole 310.jpg
new console with garage door openers
2017-0303 OverheadConsole 320.jpg
old console
2017-0303 OverheadConsole 330.jpg
ready to come out
2017-0303 OverheadConsole 340.jpg
no console
2017-0303 OverheadConsole 350.jpg
compare side by side
2017-0303 OverheadConsole 360.jpg
finish product, opens house and back garages

Ok, it's not an engine swap, but it satisfied an itch.

That's OK Fred....it's WAY cheaper than an Engine Swap! :D

Very cool little project, though. Well done.

That's not on the build sheet! Looks like it should be though.

I did a similar project on Randi's Avalon, but I only had to change the mirror. I got one with the garage door buttons from ebay. It's a very convenient addition. Good job Fred.

You should gain a tenth or two from that upgrade!

I just added 25 HP to "OH YEAH". I filled it with E85, stock rated jumped from 355hp to 380hp.

http://www.lingenfelter.com/forum_linge ... ork-begins

Ligenfelter showed 0.4 seconds and 2.7 mph in the quarter.

I can't wait to get it on the track, I'll let you know.
