  1. Also remembered same thing 🙂
  2. Sweet build! Will be following along!
  3. Thought I would not make it. And these pics are bad. And the paint is not as clear as I would like. Tips on the polishing techniques would be appreciated! I have new decals printed that will go on it. But I would like to get the paint with lesser scratches first. O and how can I make it less static? It’s a real dust magnet at the moment!
  4. #1 1987 C1500 LSX 454SS I am born in October of 1987 so the new C1500 had hit the markets. And this is a LSX converted truck. Engine is a mix of C5 corvette LS engines from the PB with a C5R intake plenum, 3D printed valvecovers and new headers out of brass. It also runs a dry sup oil system instead of the AC. also converted to a “built” automatic from a Silverado. Radiator is C5R, and brake booster is a PB find probably from a Series one. long distance fuel cell moved to the back due to wait balance and also the battery have been moved further back to remove weight from up front. new custom exhaust with my own design on Magna Flow mufflers. Exterior wise it’s stock except from things out grill and replaced headlights for my own design. otherwise the truck is stock. don’t tell anyone that I messed up the paint and also the decals but I have printed new ones that will go on as soon as I can. o and yes it’s missing the mirrors.. al of them and som other parts as well but I consider this a win since I had given up even getting it up on its wheels due to my decal mess up! Some how the truck was extremely static so dust is to be seen in the pictures! The Swedish US size plate reads AMI987 for my original initials and my year.
  5. I got it ready to race at least no beauty contest winner! And yes it misses some parts, as mirrors and lenses. But it’s at least looking pressentable and on its wheels!!
  6. I won’t compete in 2023 since none of my initial CBR builds have finished. But if I get one of them done I might run it any how. And the 454SS is at least close.
  7. I won’t make it! My messup with the decals wrinkles ended up I’m pulling the decals of. But they had bonded good to the paint due to the decal fluid I applied, so I need to sand them off. No time for that so I cal it and try to Finnish the build right in stead.
  8. I might make it. Even though I have had more issues. Need to get an other polish a final or I have to get an other cloth. The paint got scratches.also the decals wrinkled. Will sort that later.. got glass in after removing the center bar. Also glued the rear wheels and shocks. And a simple detail in the interior, a road atlas from 1987 the year when I was born 😉
