    Actually it is more along the lines of the Booty Barn was built to facilitate completing my "personalization" of what was a damn near perfect build. Everyone blames the previous owner for hacked items. This truck's previous owner did everything to a level that Toyota would envy. No detail was overlooked. I simply want to change a few things to make it better suited to my needs.

    Over the next few weeks, I will post some pics of the changes I am making....and hopefully have it ready to go for Round Up.

    First a little history....... IMG_5263.PNG IMG_5261.PNG 2FE

    First thing was to add a rear ARB, already had one up front (thanks Frisbee Automotive) IMG_3435.JPG IMG_3436.JPG and change the rear drums to rear disks with Willwood 4 piston calipers. Along with the rear disk conversion came a new brake booster from a 93 non ABS 80 series (thanks for the tip Bossman!)

    Next, add back the stock gas tank (Cool Cruisers) which required modifying the seat cradle. Since the cradle was getting reworked, I changed the seating position so the driver's seat is higher (better vision over the hood.)

    And the project stalled for a few months....a few more months while the Booty Barn was built and back to it. Somewhere along the line, I realized that as impeccable as the 2FE build was, it wasn't the engine for what I really wanted to do with the truck. So.....it was pulled and a 5.3 was mocked in. Fast forward to the completion of the booty barn, a well timed email from BD Turnkey Engines (thanks for the referral Georg aka valley Hybrid / Cruiser Brothers) and the new engine arrived. 5.3_1.jpeg

    order a couple of extra parts from AA Adapters (thank you Mathew for your patience.) Install the new flywheel, clutch, pressure plate, etc. Connect the SM420, Orion
    Took the opportunity to change over to a disc emergency brake from TSM (another Georg referral.) IMG_5990.JPG IMG_5992.JPG IMG_6003.JPG

    And to bring us up to date......an extra strap, lots of patience and the whole kit and kaboodle slid right in
    A custom fit are the C5 corvette exhaust manifolds.....dumps inside the frame rails and allows the O2 bungs to install in the manifolds. IMG_6213.JPG IMG_6224.JPG

    Bad ass. I love the brand new 5.3 and Orion mated to a 70 year old transmission. :smokin: Those wheels look good on there.

    Today’s project, gauges. I have always liked the retro look so I went with a 6 gauge cluster.
    Thanks to Mark at Metal Tech for the gauge blank, turn signal lights and high beam indicator

    Wheel envy? Lol...for those of you who wonder....the center is a stock Toyota wheel (non disc brake) grafted into a 16” wheel barrel. I really like the stock hubcap look and wanted a stock depth face. I am running spacers to handle the different back set.
    Thank you Stockton Wheel
