No progress to report, been helping friends with needs and ordering parts. Gotten cold as hell again, less inclined to work, does a number on my back. Boxes should arrive middle next week, should give me incentive to wrench.

Realized my clutch master setup would have resulted in a very very short pedal. In process of redoing master cylinder bracket to angle it down so cylinder ties into factory clutch attachment point. Still not perfect but get a better pedal swing. Hurst Drivelines makes a billet bracket, I'm mimicking it.

Alright guys, back into it, got sick and it put me down for a bit.

Got back to the yard, picked up the hydro boost I previously passed on $26, found out $40 rebuild kit will seal it up, common problem.

Started out with this, had to press out the factory Tahoe mounting bolts, fill in the holes, drill 64 mounting holes, and build clutch master mount.



Unfortunately this meant butchering the first plate me and my welding buddy put together.



My welding buddy contributed a pipe nipple to the clutch mount and stuck around to help me navigate the details of putting this setup together. Remeasured the clutch setup, ended up with 12 degree down angle to hit the factory clutch mount.

Test fitting, piston is close to spark plug wires, but not much I can do. You can run the hydro flipped 180 but that puts the lines into the clutch master.





Straight shot right to the pedal. Have to put a couple beads in the push rod, hole is way bigger than 64 pin, have to close up the slop.



Welds smoothed, sand blasted, and ready for paint.



Also found a gauge solution. Still thinking about how I'm going to implement them, but $27.32 for 04 trailblazer cluster, couldn't not get them.



Possibly cutting it up and putting them in factory holes? That'll be down the road, for now just going to poorly mount them.





Also picked up a grommet for the firewall and fuse box mount so I can hang out under the dash. To be continued.

Cleaned the garage from the Saturday thrash then finally got the rear springs settled on the axle and the car is now resting on it's full suspension. Time to torque all the bushings down. Painted the brake booster bracket.. twice. Got a nice even coat on it, went to put final coat and the damn thing wrinkled up. Cleaned it off and started over.

Cleaned up the interior while I was on a roll and found my glovebox door screws. Have been looking for them for a while!



Got my new glovebox light and rubber bumpers installed too.. any progress is progress. Think there's a filter that's supposed to go over the light, might just switch out to LED.



I needed o2 sensors, the one for the engine have a funky looking wideband connector, they're $100/ea. Figured for a little more I could use widebands and wire in the narrowband output to the ECM. Also having wideband readouts on the dash is just added fun. Reason I chose these was price, shallow gauge depth, and biggest numeric readout of all the other gauges on the market.



Took a little time to widdle the holes big enough for the bungs but got them burned in. Have to find copper antiseize to put on the primaries before I slide the collectors on for good, it'll help seal, provide better conductivity for the o2 sensors, and keep the pipes from rusting together if I ever need to pull them out again.

I Wouldn't think you could hack up a cluster like that, isn't it a circuit board across entire back?

IDK never looked at new ones.

It is but my nickname is Hotwire and I literally design circuit boards for a living.
