Hey Fella's, been a while since I've posted. I just wanted to share with you a project I've been working on. I had to replace some flooring in the house and decided to use a couple of the pieces to make a wooden bed for the SSR. It is made from tongue and groove oak and the dark pieces are walnut. I haven't finished the edges yet because I am undecided what I will use. I also decide against polyurethane and used hand rubbed instead. Might change that later but for now I like the look of the rubbed. I had to route out the bottom for my Nitrous lines, that was semi painful. Also have to take the bed top off to get it in and out because the fit is pretty tight and it has to come out towards the front. If you want to take a look at it go to my personal page and look in the album (yes I'm computer challenged). Hope everyone is doing well. v/r
Thx guys: I've been meaning to do this for some time but hey it only took me two years. I've been working on so many projects this kind of took the back burner for a while. It's funny I only had the truck for 2 months in 04 before I had the motor out and on the shop floor...yet it takes me 2 years to do a wooden bed. Dragon I too have a UV...but with an LS-6 and 120 shot, tranny done by Greg Ducato in Weatherford. Love this truck
Thx for all the comments fella's. Topspin yep that is true it does add some weight but I've kinda gotten out of straight line performance on the R. After I bought my 392 Challenger all of a sudden I had a car faster than my SSR right out of the box. Best I ever got out of the UV SSR was around 12.4...my Challenger first time out was 12.3, and it only got better. Now with tuning available I'm going with the supercharger on the Challenger. I still love the SSR though for cruisin around. You know it's funny the SSR sounds so much meaner with all the engine goodies in it but the weight is hard to overcome. I considered trying to get a fiberglass rear hatch cover but I could never find one. I've got the bottle back in and mounted in the SSR and all I lack is the finished walnut strip to go around the back where you open the tailgate. When I get that done I'll try to post another picture. The picture above really doesn't do it justice as to how nice it really looks. v/r,
Dang Doophus I just noticed how many posts you have over the years...I need to get you a full time job! I think we both joined about the same time. I pretty much stopped posting one day when I received what I thought was undeserved...shall I call it...attention. This forum is one of the better ones out in the internet world. You want to see some serious abuse go to the mustang, challenger, camaro forums. I've learned so much about our trucks on this forum I can't see owning an SSR without being on here.
