thanks. i already tried signing up for that website but it almost looks like the website is run but the idiots that run dodge talk and are super paranoid that someone will steal your identity and spam the forum lol. i couldn't even get the user name i use accross all the forums i am on for some reason.

as far as the el camino goes it is actually in pretty good shape.  it looks like it has had a frame off restoration at some point and is still in pretty good condition for the most part

rear flex lines work up front especially if you are installing quite a bit of lift. we installed one on my buddies 91. he installed at least 5" or 6" of lift and the rear flex line was more than long enough to reach where the stock one was stretched to the max.

ya if i go through all that work i will likely clear coat it. i think that way i can use cheaper paint but still get the same look. i guess we will see. i got to talk to my dad about it since he has lots of experience with this area of expertise.

ya i found that article also. other than that and another and a few bits here and there there was not much other than just lots of these horns for sale. i also found this PDF on the internet with some good info.

considering the shape it is in it is hard to say if it is a good or bad deal. trying to find a clean older vehicle gets harder and harder every year with more stuff getting crushed/scrapped or parted out. something like that in that shape might actually sell for that much around here. definitely has a cool factor going on.

well i am not going to go that all out on it. i was thinking about trying to spray it myself first and see how it comes out. someone did offer me a paint booth to use but we will see

i think i might remember seeing you post a picture or mentioning it but don't remember. sometimes horns are not too hard too fix on your own. just have to determine what the issue is. if they are horns like what i have it might just need the points cleaned or just be adjusted so that there is a gap between the points when the electromagnet starts pulling the metal plate. if the horn is old enough or more like an ooga horn it could possibly have a weak or bad motor. i had to replace the motor in my ooga horn when i got it to make it work reliably. i think it might have had a bad winding in it or something because it would work on and off.

ya your truck is part of the reason i wanted to paint it like this. i figure since i plan on keeping this forever and using it as a summer toy only minus well go all out on it and choose a cool paint job. i was originally thinking about keeping it the metalic blue that was on the 1 side but figure it would be pretty plain and no character if i did. at least the Macho wagon look would look good. it would also make the vehicle draw in attention everywhere it goes.

some of the horns still need some tuning/repair but this is about what i got done now. i even had my dads 1 horn over for testing/tuning. i am definitely starting to understand these horns pretty good. no expert but ahead of most. there is almost no info at all on the web for them other than people just selling them.
here is a video of them.

well i haven't done anything to it lately other than shuffle it around but have made some decisions about paint. thinking about giving it a 70's paint scheme similar to the picture that i attached. i don't plan on painting power wagon on it or that yellow stripe straight along the bottom like in the picture but i do plan on following the body line and painting above the wheels black and pinstriping yellow to match the rims. i think it will look cool especially since you don't really see any cool paint schemes on anything anymore. even when i was looking at 80/90's ramchargers most of the time they are just a basic 2 tone. nothing really cool. i am also possibly thinking about building a roof rack to put on it so that i have a place to mount some of the horns i recently picked up. i think they would look cool up where you could see them kind of like a big rig with their air horns. these have a air horn look to them but are electric.

well i wasn't quite expecting it but came accross a pretty good deal on tires the other day. they are used but looks to be in very good shape other than 1 having a plug in it. i figure i can get that fixed when getting them mounted. when i seen them posted i thought there might have been a mistake in the price since the person had them so cheap but i guess i will find out once i get them mounted and start using them. they are just 31x10.5 which is smaller than the 33's that were on it  but it should fix the speedo. it is still setup for 31's.

sounds like it would have just been easier and cheaper to just replace the wheel cylinder with a new one. around here i usually don't even mess with bleeder screws. i sometimes even just bleed air where the line connects to the wheel cylinder. i know it is not the proper way but it has worked many times but then again most of the times bleeder screws are only used once up here. i don't think there is any standard bleeder screw size. you just go by what the wheel cylinder has. i know when i was doing the rear brakes on my dads truck i think we had 3 or 4 different sized bleeder screws between the new and old wheel cylinders.

thats pretty cool. a 8 ton winch seems pretty overkill but should keep you from ever getting stuck. could make a pretty good tow truck.

been getting pretty lucky around here lately. have had some strange weather but not too bad. been driving this thing over the last week and it didn't take long to realize the heat sucked. i think i might have found my issue. there was at least 3 mice or rats in the coolant reservoir. cleaned that out and flushed the heater core with some vinegar and compressed air. so far it is blowing way better heat. almost can't wait till summer comes around to start doing some serious work to this thing. i have also been pretty busy fixing my 93 and 81 but the weather has been pretty decent  so it has not been too bad working on things. i think i got enough fixed that i shouldn't have anything else break this winter.
