Venture Why Wait: Coated By Pink Tower Armoury

Are you able to consider we’re arising on six years since I first began Venture Why Wait? I hardly can and I’ve been the one doing it. However at the beginning of 2021 it’s felt like the tip is lastly coming into focus.

To assist relight a fireplace inside the challenge Jeff Wybrow and I hatched a plan to deliver Venture Why Wait to his store IssyFab Velocity & Engineering this June.

Jeff will end off wiring and firing the truck together with just a few different drivability considerations his store focuses on. Whereas the #siegmc is gone I’ll deliver my mattress in from the yard and begin the steel restore and refinishing wanted there.

The truck will even take just a little journey to the physique store whereas overseas, however we’ll get to these plans in a special submit. Earlier than the truck leaves nevertheless, I must maintain the checklist you noticed on the prime of this submit.

Regardless of trying fairly full at instances quite a lot of the truck has simply been “put” collectively. A number of gadgets wanted coating, torqueing, portray and so forth to essentially be ticked off as full.

This consists of the again half, which finally verify appeared like this:

Fairly ‘shut’, however clearly the masking tape, protecting plastic and uncoated Airlift Efficiency tanks needed to go. I went backwards and forwards on what coloration to do the tanks. I bated round a contrasting coloration, however probably the most

Easiest, however most evident.

Coloration chosen, my subsequent slight hurdle was coating. I wished one thing that wasn’t too shiny or thick however a extra pure end to match the air compressors. After seeing just a few gadgets executed in Cerakote at GT Customized Exhaust Oshawa I made a decision to provide it a strive.

In case you’re not acquainted, Cerakote is a ceramic end. It’s a lot thinner than powder coat, however nonetheless supplies abrasion/put on resistance, chemical safety, and it’s typically more durable than paint.

Right here in Durham Area Ontario Pink Tower Armoury is the chief in Ceramic Coatings. If it wants coating they’ve seemingly executed it. And for those who’re undecided if it wants coating they’ll enable you to determined how and what it wants.

With my tanks being somewhat low on the complexity scale of labor they’ve executed they merely knocked it out of the park.

There’s additionally just a few different gadgets they did for me hanging in my storage. However, we’ll get to these later as I assemble the inside.

The tanks are black now, however the grain of the aluminum remains to be seen, as are the welds and all of the craftsmanship Air Raise initially put into the items.

Extra importantly, it appears nice subsequent to the entire different black elements. The RCI Gasoline Cell, Viair compressors, and brake traces. Additionally, value noting, in these photographs the chassis is practically fully wired.

The primary rear chassis harness has been run via the body, along with the Airlift predominant harness run in this submit from 2018.

For the reason that photographs above, I’ve been within the storage not less than three nights per week sniping gadgets from my checklist. Mid June is about thirty days away and I’ve acquired loads of work to do!

As at all times comply with me on Instagram for shorter updates on the progress as I transfer alongside.
