*************[Note: Since photobucket decided to nerf everyone's accounts, a lot of the pictures in this thread are gone. I intend to fix all of the posts but it will take quite a while.  Photos start on page 29 currently. In the meantime all of the photos are available on Facebook by searching #projectflexington and many are on Instagram under the same hashtag. Thanks for looking and please don't be afraid to comment! ]*************

Started by ripping out the blowthrough shell that came with the truck, link in my signature to a series tuned 6th I built in it previous to this if you want to see it.

Started by building the loading wall / port for the small high tuned front chamber. I ended up shrinking this due to space issues, 10s will be sealed in 1.9ft3 per pair:

Test fitting, made some other changes after this:

Picked up some metal for internal bracing and some fasteners, got more fasteners not pictured including lag bolts:

Did a mockup of the new alternator setup, I ended up deciding to use a different tensioner but I'll post about that later:

Shot a light coat of paint over the bed, Redid the bottom layer, and laid some expanding foam:

I'll be ripping out the port and replacing it with a single sheet and longer divider tomorrow

My new seats came in, test fitted the driver seat:

Started making wood floor, still not committed to this route for reinforcing the cabin and will probably pull it out and use metal to reinforce the floor boards and fire wall but we'll see:

Started building and fitting the bracing for the front chamber, I will be tacking these together, removing and welding them solid:

Last time I saw his youtube videos he had just got it road worthy.

What made him decide to sell?

I really don't know but he said something about considering doing a build in the Ford Ranger he recently got back that was his first vehicle he had gotten from his grandfather back in the day. Also mentioned a crx, which he bought after but I saw that up for sale the other day.
