Redog out of hiding!! 56K beware

Wonder why you havenít see too many pics of Redog lately?

Redogís been in hiding getting fixed up for ASS.

Start off with something simple, like tucking the wires of the train horn



And putting it on hinges for a better mounting



And




And what about that pesky hood chipping, car getting keyed, and a little bit of rust?









And the rear bumper was effed up too



Redog lost some weight:









Getting primed and painted











I had the underside of the hood painted and the fender rails painted too. These were never cleared at the factory









The rear bumper took the most time and money

But the pipes arenít exactly perfect

Remember how bad my dash was?


Well I fixed that too!!





With a lot of glue and weight LOL!!






Got some things powercoated
Like my wiper arms: (Flat black)



Front valve cover (Black Wrinkle)


My intake piping (Mirror Red)

New rear brake rotors centers in Silver (They rust)

New FAZE gauge: (Oil Pressure)
(Itís not hooked up yet, my mech has an idea on how to hook it up with a sender bracket and a stainless steel line. He thinks itís too close to the header, and too much weight on the brass. Sounds really cool, and I will post pics later. This wonít be done until after ASS)


I picked up this too:


I painted it "black Satin"



Still working on the sunroof trim, going to try flat black vinal around the edges

Took the wheels off and took them to a self serve car wash, then waxed them inside out!! Came out between 80% to 95% clean inside.



Repainted the caliper brackets on the front:

And the center of the front rotor

Now itís ready for ASS Ď08

thats great, the exhaust is my favorite! i like the train horn too, on a different page, that made me think of this, my buddy has a big (old) ford 150 with i think 4 inches of lift, we are kinda hickish out here in this part of ohio, but it looks pretty sweet and is great for mudding, but i love the jeep better, any way he wants to find a way to put a fog horn in the bed. haha

nice work looks good.

can't you just hook the oil pressure gauge up where the stock sender is ? I swaped the stock sender with the autometer sender and done.

It hits the header, plus it's not a really a good idea to replace the stock unit. It controls something else that happens when you start the car, I don't remember what

Nice work, Kenny! Now I know why you couldn't afford to make the Delta run any quicker. Mind lending me $7K to do my Alero next?
