Yeah, steel is pretty low right now. I was offered $120 for a complete 02 Silverado, missing only engine, trans, and wiring/swap stuff.

I called a different yard the other day. 125... much better.

The board clearly throws a monkey wrench in my plans to get those holder upper thing-a-ma-bobs for mine.... I will have ask scalpum if he could get windshield out without fucking it up..  Maybe that radio holder thing as mine was destroyed by a overzealous radio installer years ago.

Ok. A little lower . First we did 4 inch blocks and heated the floor under the rear seat and took a hammer to it after we cut out the center bump stop mount. and that was bang bang city. Along with driveline rub. 20161015_115043_zpsqb6biiop.jpg

 

Today whilst the non wind event happened. Made some angled blocks and flipped a leaf.

First pic I have a 3500w gen set in the back. For incase. Second the gen set is removed. But the mods have been done. We decided against the notch today because of the "storm". Didn't want to be half way through plasma cutting or welding when power cuts out. Looked at his welder, said 7500w. Yeah at max but not gonna chance it...Next week maybe... pfa..

 On the trip to long beach, filled the tank all the way. Got back on the road and started smelling gas. Then I got a call from the guys following me saying that I was dumping fuel.  Turns out taking left hand turns the gas would start dumping on the road.  So, I investigated...

Didnt look right to me.  So off to the junk yard cat infested wagon again. and found this...

Got me a set of BMW ellipsoids...

 

 

Lots of cutting of the buckets and brackets and shaving the mounting tabs of the bmw lights.20161029_154049_zps9rfrgmhw.jpg

 

20161029_154020_zpsmtbchzpr.jpg

Sorry for the shitty pics.

20161101_171338_zpskcc79ifk.jpg

 

20161101_171355_zpsmzl6kbqe.jpg

 

Then some hammering of the headlight hole on the core support..

 

20161125_183340_zpsznsyk1me.jpg

 

GoT em in.

20161103_180846_zpsbmwnytbg.jpg[/url]

Then output comparison.

Low beams.

20161102_182458_zpsqz6unx59.jpg

High beams. Not adjusted.

20161102_182733_zpsdlo7fvox.jpg

 

The right headlightside hotspots is messed up. Someone put the bulb in the housing wrong and melted the housing. So now the bulds sits in at an angle killing the hot spot.

20161104_223736_zpsbo0eb9gt.jpg

 

I'm running a relay harness for the low beams and on for the high beams.

20161105_171736_zpsjklunzoy.jpg

 

20161105_183825_zpsvhfvzhda.jpg[/url]

 

And added a diode to keep the low beams on with the high beams. This is really important when going to HIDs. Because of the warm up time they have.

 

20161112_012801_zps6zjylni4.jpg

 

Put in a HID kit. 35w 3000k

 

The hotspots is still messed up on the right. Going to fix this soon. Got a replacement rear part for the light.
