              Re: KoolerSL2's Heavy Chevy

              hey well long time since a update so here it goes.
              again wheel shop ordered wrong offset of the wheels and i finally just got my money back.
              got another rearend to build up.
              stereo is installed.
              anyway ill let the pics speak.





              thats the spectre hat i ordered and some filters and exhaust pipe i cut up and painted up.
              really works well but its a bitch to jet and tune the carb for!

              now heres the rear end build up.
              i got lucky and scored a Nice 10 bolt out of a 4wd truck that had exactly what i wanted. 3.42 gears with the factory locker.



              well when i started tearing it apart i found that it had been rode a bit hard. great tooth pattern but had a big chip in the pinion gear. Also if any of you know how these Gov-Locks (AKA grenade Lock) works u know for what i do itll blow up.

              So im parting the guts out of this one and ordered Summit 3.42 gears and a PowerTrax Lock-Right locker.
              and ordered the rebuild kit and slowly gonna build this one.





              Now interior wise not much has happened.
              still trying to find nice seats and tryin to finish the fiberglass dash.
              But i have stereo!

              Nice lil Jensen HU, OE replacement 3.5's in the corners, pair 4' 2 ways in the center, some off brand 6X9's in the rear corners in custom brackets.
              all the speakers are running on the amps i had in the SL2.
              fronts are on the 200w pioneer 2ch
              reare are on the 600W infinity 4ch, rear channels are already setup for when i built the sub box.
              once the interior is finished they will be fully hidden.









              did a lil bit to the exhaust as the Summit fake flows were starting to rattle i decided to go old school.
              went and ordered and installed a set of 18" long 3" core glasspacks.
              ill have a video up soon.
              thats all for now.

              Peace
