  • you're on the please put on YouTube
  • chain Hey look at you big ol boys
  • lowering that thing now all right now
  • jump off it so hopefully that's how low
  • it fits or lower should be lower
  • all right guys first thing before
  • today's video really gets going is in
  • the description there are gonna be two
  • links to two different polls right so if
  • you guys saw the live feed we were
  • talking about what the best daily driver
  • would be for me to pick up instead of
  • the c7 I think it is finally time that I
  • am going to get rid of the c7 it's just
  • not practical anymore Holly cannot ride
  • on it and it's very important that Holly
  • our beloved golden retriever can ride to
  • work with us and be comfortable
  • she hates riding the dually and we can't
  • get rid of the dually because we need it
  • for the trucks and trailers and all that
  • honestly the riding in the dually is
  • rough Cooper knows it too yeah so the
  • thing rides super hard we didn't drive
  • the Tahoe in the wagon a lot but only
  • it's something that Holly can ride in I
  • can take through a car wash I can
  • freakin rip still and if you didn't see
  • the live feeding go back and watch it
  • went through a whole bunch of stuff
  • whether it was a Jeep track or a
  • supercharged Tahoe tons of ideas already
  • on there but you guys can go in the poll
  • and vote for whatever you guys think and
  • add your own options and then the other
  • thing there's gonna be another link for
  • another poll which is gonna be the name
  • of the galaxy and I saw some that I
  • really liked one of them being stranger
  • you guys see any that you like I was
  • thinking like Real Steel or something
  • because it's an old school it's real
  • feel it's steel yeah what do you think
  • you've seen together on I haven't seen
  • anything that really jumped out at me a
  • stranger is the only thing like because
  • we don't know anything about it have you
  • seen that movie real steel the robot
  • movie yeah mine's that robot of the
  • junkyard kind of look just like this
  • yeah okay we got a couple options so
  • please go vote on both of those things
  • all right guys so this is how this is
  • gonna work I had to use Facebook to
  • create this pull it ended up being the
  • best option now I know a lot of you guys
  • probably don't have a Facebook account
  • but they're free to make and we're gonna
  • be using this Facebook group to be
  • voting on things in the future as well
  • the best way to find our Facebook group
  • is to go to the cleanest MacFarland a
  • Facebook page
  • go over to the group's tab and you'll
  • see a group called boggers United you
  • have to request to join and we'll be
  • approving requests all day long so just
  • wait a few minutes and you'll be
  • approved to join within the group you'll
  • see two polling options one for the
  • daily driver one for the galaxy name you
  • can go and vote on options that are
  • existing or add your own option if you
  • have a name or a car that you really
  • like it everyone can vote from that
  • point on I think we're gonna Bob deep
  • with this group this group is gonna be
  • awesome because we can post updates on
  • builds things like that and also use it
  • for polling in the future so join the
  • group make an account if you only have
  • to use it for this so be it it's free to
  • use and it'll be an awesome tool for the
  • future and for those of you who guys who
  • are gonna miss the c-7 I completely
  • agree with you but it does just sit
  • around it'd be better off in someone's
  • hands and we are gonna be getting a new
  • C 8 it's time for the c7 to go
  • unfortunately I really think it is time
  • for the go I want to get prepared for
  • the c8 we already have two Corvettes
  • that make double the horsepower and I
  • know is the og c7 we will make a
  • farewell video for her it's just that
  • time so it's gonna break some hearts but
  • it is what it is so vote on those two
  • polls but today we're talking about the
  • galaxy let's get into it alright guys
  • today the plan is to figure out how we
  • are gonna bag this thing so I already
  • actually have the air ID stuff here we
  • made this happen quick and this is a the
  • solution to our sketchy driving
  • situation hopefully because the car
  • sways so much with the current coils
  • that it's on we knew I needed a ride
  • right when we got it cuz it's gonna look
  • a lot better Drive better the whole nine
  • yards so we got some air ride stuff
  • today that we're gonna be opening up
  • kind of excited see how the galaxies
  • look let's push down up here real quick
  • to its whoo that'll look like mmm okay
  • yeah yeah
  • oh good oh this thing's look so good so
  • the only thing we have to keep in mind
  • though guys is the lowest thing on this
  • is the transmission oil pan or fluid pan
  • it's not that high off the ground it's
  • not that low though so we should we
  • should be able to slam this thing pretty
  • good and be able to drive it still but
  • before we even get to any of the engine
  • components anything like that we are
  • gonna bag this thing you know normally
  • our first route with anything is to go
  • all out on the performance side of
  • things we're gonna switch it up on this
  • we're gonna do a lot of voting and
  • things like that to get this going
  • alright so everything you're gonna see
  • today I got from my buddy Wes it's all
  • airlift stuff and he hooked it all up
  • he's Specht it all out all we did was
  • send in pictures of basically the inside
  • of wheel wells and things like that I
  • told him you know we want to be able to
  • have it versatile maybe even tow an open
  • trailer with one of the Corvettes on it
  • to the track so he got it set up here
  • and we're about to open up this stuff
  • and see what we got so these two boxes
  • have the Basingstoke that's the fancy
  • stuff alright let's do it
  • whoa air bags oh wow they're all for the
  • exact same I figured they'd be like the
  • RV like some different ones in the back
  • well this this car is called spring all
  • the way around yeah so this is your
  • standard size bag rated to 200 psi dang
  • so you replace the cool spring would
  • purchase a yes bag the bags then do
  • these have a shock built in them you
  • don't need a stock right there well
  • there's you could still run a shock yeah
  • they keep some stability there to keep
  • balance out of these shocks are shot in
  • the Indiana so we'll probably have to go
  • to a shorter body shock anyways okay put
  • these on yeah otherwise a little basic
  • you just build a flat plate off a perch
  • off a perch where the spring was and
  • yeah and you kind of build the perch to
  • the range of low and high you okay all
  • right cool so there's our bags we got a
  • slam specialties
  • well things here is that what ran the
  • bags are slam specialty it's like this
  • kid is got here tank spawn a little bit
  • of fun aluminum yes
  • Oh fancy look to it that's perfect sod
  • mountain tabula we leave it out in the
  • rain for a little bit so it looks like
  • the rest of the code oxidized day that's
  • almost too fancy for this thing
  • espresso purple power on a weed out the
  • water yeah dude that'll fit perfectly in
  • that trunk too cuz there's plenty of
  • room back there for you Hunter psi up
  • airlift alright so this is the fancy
  • stuff James what you got let's do this
  • year's your wall and one compressor
  • young oppressors for this kid two
  • compressors huh yeah let's start at that
  • just to fill the volume yeah
  • so if you're bogging up and down yeah
  • okay so you're not having to wait for
  • you know an air all the way out or fully
  • bags all ya have to wait so long
  • beers tank it fill back up oh nice
  • there's all our fittings line things
  • like that
  • even comes with teflon tape comes with
  • bolt to mount it that's pretty cool that
  • homework comes up to some wiring stuff
  • looks so fancy what is this this is that
  • it's better be able to be controlled by
  • an app or this is your controller he'll
  • be so excited okay let's see what we got
  • okay
  • LCD screen on it Oh see raise and lower
  • it it's got presets and all that stuff
  • whoa that is thick I put that back in
  • there we don't want to lose that that's
  • the control this is a control box yeah
  • all your valves and whatnot in this box
  • oh really hooked up some solenoids and
  • Anna really some a tear where needed
  • yeah yeah look at that still the ports
  • on the back yeah Wow how you just plug
  • it in there boom yeah plugs in the plugs
  • into this to controlling your power
  • ground
  • because our we have miscellaneous parts
  • in here because this is the that's the
  • heart of the whole operation this
  • controls you you know front left front
  • right rear left right and stuff like
  • that was that tanks Austin exhaust okay
  • hey we are hot boys with this this blog
  • in these freaking air bags how long do
  • you think this will take us to do a day
  • or two day or two yeah okay so what else
  • do we have in this is there anything
  • else looks like your mind okay so that's
  • our harness and hose is that it it seems
  • so simple it is I mean air ride is
  • pretty simple one see the bags and it's
  • the tricky parts of geometry of the bag
  • I'm getting the bag in there right
  • towards lifting the dollar level what
  • it's not you don't want the bag when it
  • expands to bow you want how to expand
  • even all right so let's uh should we
  • rack the car up and show everyone what
  • we what we're working with okay cuz no I
  • don't think anyone really has an idea of
  • what the suspension looks like on a 1965
  • galaxy but we're going to show you the
  • axle does droop quite a bit
  • give us some room to weld on stuff in
  • there
  • interesting you know these meals are
  • growing on me we've never even been
  • underneath this thing no I'm just
  • noticing gonna get lights back here they
  • probably got this wrong number
  • he does have lights back there we've
  • never been under this guy's Wow looks
  • like
  • oh yeah he gave us a new pan for the
  • yeah he taught the trailer on it
  • yeah the transmission pan is already
  • pretty beaten so we won't really have to
  • worry about beating it up anymore it is
  • leaking a little bit yeah we have hims
  • began from here to the filter in there
  • it's okay well the transmission at least
  • we have the other one
  • so that's dirty under here but it is
  • what it is you know we didn't do some of
  • this stuff so we're gonna have to deal
  • with it is that they all convertor in
  • there it's really not too bad a shape
  • down here though I want to see it oh
  • yeah those mounts for the engine don't
  • look too bad it's not horrible
  • definitely saw it now yeah it's pretty
  • solid as you guys can see from this
  • angle the lowest thing is gonna be the
  • engine oil pan and the transmission oil
  • pan it's also pretty named low but other
  • than that dude underneath this thing is
  • clean I mean the frame is all in really
  • good shape I don't see any major rust
  • spots to you guys I mean it's definitely
  • some surface rust
  • there's probably definitely some deeper
  • rest on that too around here but not
  • horrible it's all huh can't be that so
  • what do you think on this looks like
  • there's a lot of room there for an air
  • bag yes there pretty much we're gonna
  • replace this coil spring with the bag
  • okay and then go to a shorter body shop
  • you know so this way our ride height
  • slower and then our compression
  • extension of a shock will work with the
  • air okay all right sounds good sounds
  • good you a Whitney let me go let me get
  • the back view for everybody who wants to
  • see the detailed stuff you can see our
  • shock is there might have to go shorter
  • on that and you can see where the coil
  • sits up there we might not have to do
  • much to the top there as far as just
  • getting a bolt in it it's gonna be the
  • most difficult thing or maybe maybe even
  • lowering that perch down yeah really
  • what we're gonna do is pull off the
  • shocks and the coil springs and let the
  • car go back on the ground and see what
  • it is stare down see if it'll frame out
  • without you know something hitting
  • driveshaft you make sure our
  • you know Porsche and all this will work
  • and if that's the case that we mount the
  • bag to work fully compressed it's it's a
  • doubt framed out so uh it appears here
  • is Ho the drive shaft and the yoke is
  • hitting a little bit later it's made
  • contact once or twice it's made contact
  • so we've actually noticed that when
  • you're riding dirty with you know three
  • or four people it does already hit well
  • you get kicked or dad bought in there
  • you know that it's firing shots of the
  • dead bug Wow little low low low blow he
  • doesn't have a kid though it's just a
  • bond it's it just are pretty close I'm
  • gonna see you eh
  • I'm white people think I'm heavy mom how
  • much you weigh what's you got on that
  • things guess I'd say 205 oh yeah Mike
  • 204 204 same way all right let's break
  • down the scale second I want away to the
  • Galaxy 2 but we uh we might I just want
  • to take a freaking sledgehammer
  • no no we'll do it right we'll probably
  • cut this out he's not a little bit
  • yeah if it's under this sheet you don't
  • need that clearance
  • okay cool though you don't want this
  • that's like yeah we don't want that home
  • and you don't want that touching woods
  • when it's laid out too so if it gets
  • stupid low it's gonna hit again we
  • probably have to fix that you can see
  • where it's already put marks on the
  • driveshaft and whatnot so yeah
  • all right so up here oh yeah it kind of
  • looks the same it's got that coil yes
  • that spring holds the weight the shock
  • helps with the mouse yeah it's a very up
  • here oh we have to ditch the shock up
  • here really yeah the shock the shock in
  • the front does
  • maybe think about it somewhere this all
  • these bars yeah just towards your bar
  • and stuff like that
  • you just gonna make sure none of that
  • goes wonky when you lower it okay you
  • know it's sitting in a parking lot aired
  • out is fun but driveability like you're
  • right here new right you got to make
  • sure it's not trying to push why don't
  • make it hard to turn you think our bags
  • will fit in there it looks like it yeah
  • they should
  • this is you know we could build those
  • and it's grouped all the way down right
  • now yeah build a flat plate and then
  • something with a stand that comes out
  • thank you dude this is some wild stuff
  • I've never really dabbled in suspension
  • stuff so this is definitely really
  • interesting for Cooper and I because
  • really all we've ever done is just a
  • coilover installs which is kind of like
  • bolt off this will be the first
  • suspension setup we ever change so what
  • do you think tomorrow
  • let's dyno it and then yeah well sheriff
  • are the suspension after that well down
  • the road we're gonna make more power
  • with it so be cool let's not get a
  • baseline let's get the baseline and just
  • go from there
  • not that this has been not that the
  • suspension is gonna change the power at
  • all but we are going to get a baseline
  • before we do anything to this thing all
  • right so that is our quick introduction
  • to bagging the Galaxie the next video on
  • the Galaxie it's probably gonna be a
  • dyno video to do the dyno video we're
  • still trying to figure out how we're
  • gonna dyno this thing without trashing
  • the shop with black smoke so whether
  • that's making a flex exhaust that goes
  • all the way out the shop or using PVC
  • which might melt I really don't know
  • we're gonna figure it out your diesel
  • guy comment below let us know what
  • you've done because I'm sure all these
  • high-power diesel guys do it too because
  • a lot of shops won't allow you to blow
  • smoke into their ceiling and that's the
  • last thing we want to do here so we're
  • gonna figure out how to dyno it
  • hopefully do that tomorrow and then the
  • following video - that will be us
  • bagging it which is gonna be a sweet
  • process because we've never done it you
  • guys get the whole freakin info blast on
  • how to bag a car and you can kind of see
  • it firsthand how we do it how we learn
  • how we make it happen from there it's
  • performance mods and you know this thing
  • needs bigger turbo and it needs more
  • fuel
  • Wheelz - so you guys got a little
  • playing on the galaxy now and don't
  • forget to go and vote on those two polls
  • but that is it for now thanks for
  • watching to prevail we won't freaking
  • see you later
