Getting the inside scoop on a four-pump floating show setup.We see all kinds of hydraulic setups when we go to the lowrider shows. After a while, they all start to look alike. The key thing about show cars is individuality and having something unique that nobody else has. Fortunately, there are always a few guys who have stepped up to the plate and completely broken away from the traditional installs by using paint and custom machine work to help eparate them from the pack. We caught up with Chris from C&C Customs in Vacaville, California, who has put out some of the most complicated setups in the lowrider industry. Chris usually works by appointment only and has a two-week waiting period before even setting up a meeting. We were just lucky to catch a break before Chris started on this install and were invited to drop by so that he could show us what he's all about. Chris was installing a four-pump setup in a customer's '63 Chevy Impala and he gave us a sneak peek at the work that he's doing. Chris started off by laying it all out to see what he's working with. The trunk tub of this Impala was ready to have some intricate work done to it. With the false floor in place, the aluminum plate was ready to be installed.
