Venture Why Wait: Coated By Crimson Tower Armoury


Are you able to imagine 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 in the beginning of 2021 it’s felt like the tip is lastly coming into focus.

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

Jeff will end off wiring and firing the truck together with a couple of different drivability issues his store makes a speciality of. Whereas the #siegmc is gone I’ll convey my mattress in from the yard and begin the steel restore and refinishing wanted there.

The truck will even take a bit journey to the physique store whereas overseas, however we’ll get to these plans in a unique publish. Earlier than the truck leaves nevertheless, I have to handle the listing you noticed on the high of this publish.

Regardless of wanting fairly full at instances numerous 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 contains the again half, which finally test appeared like this:

Fairly ‘shut’, however clearly the masking tape, protecting plastic and uncoated Airlift Efficiency tanks needed to go. I went forwards and backwards on what coloration to do the tanks. I bated round a contrasting coloration, however essentially 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 a couple of gadgets performed in Cerakote at GT Customized Exhaust Oshawa I made a decision to present it a strive.

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

Right here in Durham Area Ontario Crimson Tower Armoury is the chief in Ceramic Coatings. If it wants coating they’ve doubtless performed it. And in case you’re undecided if it wants coating they’ll enable you to determined how and what it wants.

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

There’s additionally a couple of 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 Carry initially put into the items.

Extra importantly, it appears nice subsequent to all the different black elements. The RCI Gasoline Cell, Viair compressors, and brake traces. Additionally, price noting, in these pictures the chassis is practically utterly wired.

The principle rear chassis harness has been run by way of the body, along with the Airlift important harness run in this publish from 2018.

Because the pictures above, I’ve been within the storage at the very least three nights per week sniping gadgets from my listing. Mid June is about thirty days away and I’ve acquired loads of work to do!

As all the time observe me on Instagram for shorter updates on the progress as I transfer alongside.
