Week to Wicked Day 2 Afternoon Recap

1/18/2017
Add Article To List

Recapping the afternoon of Day Two started with the guys talking about the LS3, and getting the Painless Wiring Harness laid out and ready to hook up all the various sensors. They also installed the Vintage Air "Front Runner" kit on the LS, which is a compact serpentine system that really cleans up the front of the engine. The crew from Speedway Motors, Damon, Joe, and Tom, worked on installing the evaporator and wiring for the A/C that will go in the truck, also from Vintage Air.

The brakes were also wrapped up, various lines completed and valves and switches installed. The cab was dry-fit again, so the guys could install the brake pedal and a few other things in the right location. The cab was pulled back off, and the brakes were buttoned up until final assembly.

The guys are looking forward to Day Three, where they hope to drop the engine and trans in, get the crossmember location locked in and bolt the crossmember in solid. Once the engine and drivetrain are in, the exhaust can be started and wiring can continue.
