97 LE rolling resto

So, we just finished and delivered this 97 to it's new owner out west. New owner wanted to go ahead and freshen her up, so that's what we did. Over the coarse of six weeks we did full paint, TD5 seats, keyless locks, heated seats along with remote start as well. The keyless locks are by far worth their weight in gold, I never considered them before but I'm glad we did them. These will be going into a lot more of our builds from now on!

So tell us more about the electric locks, brand/manufacturer ?
Install pictures ?
How about the rear door, how was that to install ?

Is that a lock control switch to the right of the shifter on the console ?

Viper smart start kit, pretty straight forward! Lock switch is on the console and the heated seat controls are on the dash. Both spots had previous holes so we tried to cover them, typically I would of tried to hide them. The rear door was left alone, we didn't attempt to set that one up. I didn't take to many pics sorry.

Brian, beautiful job. Did this truck suffer from the typical aluminum corrosion and paint bubbling? I've got some starting in a couple places on my SW which has me thinking about when to pull the trigger.

You nailed it, we had to take several sections down and treat before paint. Here are a few pics before we got into her.

I have the Viper Kit also...no key-less locks, but I like the old school. I also have the bit writer two programming computer so I can customize it all, like sound and even set it up to monitor an attached trailer.

The only thing I don't like about the Viper is the remote control...it is too fragile and the 2way remotes are expensive to replace.

His smart start I believe allows him to unlock and start car from his phone so he tech doesn't need the key fob. Here are a few more pics of the interior.

It is parked right next to your truck as we speak We could really mess with Rob right now if we started playing with our alarms

attached is a pic of the phone set up. Brewie/Brian did a great job refreshing this truck and I am excited to get some seat time.

To be honest it was suppose to be a complete TD5 kit from another distributor (NTO) it turned out to not be so hot. So I made the best of it and had my upholster pack up his machine, grab the nicest black carpet he could find and head to my shop. I would say it's 50/50 custom/TD5. I think the carpet was a 7/10. Not my best work but made the best of a bad situation. It's night and day better then the old carpet.
