Frame off to be sandblasted and powdercoated – Satin Black
12 bolt – removing the drums, C-clips and axles – This will also be sent out to be sandblasted
Rear will end up being a posi with possibly 3.75 gears.
Hopefully with the 2004R trans, this should have some real low end torque, but in 4th gear, hope to run about 2200 RPM’s
Right now, this is a non-posi 12 bolt
zero rust. Very nice hood. All the way from Iowa. Came off of a 1966 Firetruck.
This came in the same day my frame was done (below pics)
Frame comes back from the sandblaster and powdercoater – 10/15
Rearend from the sandblaster
After looking at the frame, I wanted it even better. The powdercoater did a great job, but there
was some flaws in the frame along with rust pits…so I dove in the same day I got it from the powdercoater (10/15)
Primed 2 1/2 hours later
Notice there are only two holes on the top of the frame rail (directly above the black area you see on the crossmember)
instead of three in the previous pics.
On my previous truck, I used the front two holes to mount the perch for the big block. Since I am going small block this time,
I did away with the front hole (out of the three) for a smoother look.
10/16 Repainted in a satin black – Looks perfect now!!!
Satin Black rear
Upper and lower control arms in primer. Ready to paint.
Going to paint the same color as the truck which will be ? Possibly “Medium Spiral Gray”
These will be ready to paint later this week…better decide on what color I want to do the truck in
Narrowed down to the following…
Medium Spiral Gray with red calipers, int, and accents (2003-2004 Corvette color). My previous Corvette Synergy Green 2010 Camaro color 2010 Hyundai Genesis “Lime Rock Green” 2008 Chevy Atomic Orange 2011 Harley-Davidson Sedona Orange Purple Pearl. My previous C-10 which I painted in 1993. I created my own formula using Glasurit 54 line.
In fact, I still have the sheet showing the mixing toners and weights.
Funny how this is VERY close to the 1998 Corvette Pace Car color. I made this way before GM did.
C-notch installed (4 hours of cutting and grinding)
Received my Trans. Jody went to pick it up in Hudson from Transmission Depot
2004R 4 speed auto with 2300-2500 stall convertor
ZERO rust VERY hard hood to find in this good of condition
Had my wife's 2018 H-D Softail Street Bob custom painted. The paint job turned out flawless and looks incredible.... Pricing is very reasonable for a custom paint job. Scott and Jody at Attitude Custom Painting are awesome to work with. They are very responsive and professional. Would definitely do business with again without hesitation.read more
Top notch operation. First off, they always answer the phone and take the time to walk you through the work being... done. Want an update? Give them a call and someone will tell you exactly what step in the process is being done. I took a very curvaceous Ducati tank in with a fist size crash dent. They took the tank same day and gave a very reasonable 5 day estimate and got it done in that time . Scott repaired the dent and resprayed the tank for me. The paint shines better than new. Bonus: they’re actually nice and personable unlike the grease monkeys I usually deal with.read more
After researching top notch painters in the Tampa Bay area, I chose to use Attitude Custom Painting. I met with Scott... and his wife Jody and explained exactly what I was wanting him to do for me. I brought him all my Harley Davidson Street Glide custom parts after meeting with them. My fiancé and I explained how important it was to us that this paint job needed to be perfect. When the work was completed, in a timely manner, Scott had us come to the shop to inspect and pick up all parts. I have to say we were absolutely ecstatic with the custom paint job! Scott knocked it out of the ball park and exceeded our expectations. We can’t thank you enough Scott and Jody for your professionalism and fantastic customer service. I highly recommend Attitude Custom Painting for the paint job you may be wanting. Thank you,Bart and Daniread more
Brought my 2009 Jeep Wrangler to Attitude after getting hood replaced to have complete vehicle painted.The rest of ... body had pits in paint as well as rust around door edges, Scott made the whole vehicle come to life with a better than new car showroom finish(chose Midgrade paint package).There is a amazing attention to detail that provides exceptional value (applied lacquer to running boards and mirrors).You will get your money's worth and be pleased using Scott & Attitude.read more
Had my Accord repainted here a few years back. They did an absolutely phenomenal job. I hate having others do work on... my cars or my house. I am very critical of the work I do and hate paying to have others to make mistakes. They were the rare case of perfection. My car had a better paint job when they were done than when it was new! Oh, and get this... Their price was very reasonable! Now I have been playing with the idea of changing the color on my Honda S2000. Wouldn't go anywhere else. 10 stars, if that is even possible...read more
