I love putting accents on something bland.  That oil cap is a nice touch!  Way to go, you're making great progress!

worked on grimace today. installed cab mounts, removed steel fuel line and brake lines so that i can replaced them hopefully but next weekend and then bleed both the brake master and clutch master cylinder and clutch slave cylinder then off to the exhaust shop for some new 2" piping and use my vw stinger exhaust muffler or run a 40 series flowmaster muffler

well finally went to muffler shop to install my vw stinger exhaust but it was loud even with a baffle in it and it sounded terrible so i used 1 of 2 flowmaster mufflers. i don't know if they are a 40 series muffler or not. it doesn't sound to bad. it does sound different coming from a 4 cylinder motor than it does from my 5.3 liter v-8 in my silverado.  now that i have done that part now i have to run new fuel/brake metal lines and then finally bleed entire hydraulic systems before i can take it for a quick little spin around the block. i took a video tonight but i will have to delete it and re-record it during the daytime for better viewing pleasures.

Progress!!!!  I'd really like to hear the exhaust!  Would you sit the camera back behind the truck and give her a few revs?
