    Originally they were spot welded on somehow, and it left a couple of dimples. Just epoxy it on, and fill in the dimples a little but not completely, then paint over it, and no one will probably...

    Not exactly off subject, but I've been waiting to see CN's finished body on the finished frame, and how he did it. What's the hold up? I would be scared too. It's much easier with an empty shell....

    I'm not exactly sure, but I think what I was suggesting would work with car skates. It allows you to have the car sitting on the suspension, without being bound up so you can get measurements, and...

    I'm finding my new car dollies work great for lining up body mounts, and moving it bits at a time, with the weight of the body supported barely off the frame. For a lot of other stuff I like to have...

    Yes is should work that way trying to start the engine, but that is the only time it will turn on the buzzer. And it won't work after the engine shuts off from the inertia switch is all. You would...

    Ouch, I had nothing to do with this, or running any wires in my doors. At least no one here is related to you.

    I think that's the way he had it hooked up the first time. The problem is the 12v goes away from the ECM when the engine shuts off. Good schematic though.

    I believe the fuel pump output won't work with just key on, and the engine off, which you wouldn't want. I think the engine needs to be cranking, or running to fire up the pump.

    I wouldn't crawl under it, but for what I was doing the blocks were plenty strong and stable for what I was doing. I gave it a shake test every step of the way, and each block is holding up less that...

    I understand how you have it connected up now, but it's kind of a fluke the buzzer/light works that way. It must be finding a ground loop through the ECM which might not be good. I'm not really...

    You are doing a beautiful job! I feel your pain on the leak, but I suspect the mating surfaces on the banjo bolt/caliper might not be plumb, or parallel. Seems like it should be a easy connection...

    I had to crib the body and my frame a lot trying to get it on and off a trailer, and on to a frame. For the most part I used two 9 foot 4x4's, and 16 concrete blocks, which are pretty cheap, and...

    It looks like the inertia switch should be in series with DK GRN/WHT wire 465 output from the PCM, and not the control input to the PCM? Assuming it's 12v going to the relay coil.

    True, just another wire won't do it. Since GM uses oil pressure as part of the fuel pump circuit it might be a little more involved, unless there is a 12 volt relay somewhere, sending power to the...

    Pretty cool, and a good idea. You just need to run one more wire like you found out.

    Looks good, but it might look even better with the 2 centers painted close to body color.

    Ouch, just got a call from the body shop. I thought I was only coming up on the first $1000, but they are up to 80 hours, and not close to done with additional body work. I currently owe $3710.96. So...

    The window motors are simply DC motors, and you just reverse the polarity for up/down. I actually have always preferred manual window cranks, which I even had in my 08 Silverado. Too bad there was...
