    Its looking really good. &nbsp:Do you have any more pictures of the steps along the way up on your site? I know that I am planning on doing a lot of the same body work that you have done and it is pretty inspirational to see it after it has worked. When you get it done you will definately have to post a before and after. It should be pretty incredible.

    thanks for the support,

    woody, i am guessing 3 months, the steering is coming together nicely and after that, the only big job is drive shafts and cut-n-rotate.

    oh and for all you wannabes, the color is rustoleum saftey red :flipoff2: :flipoff2: :D

    oh and my dad bent up some steel to go around the tail lights off the bumper....sweet :D

    what thickness metal did you use on your tub floor?

    and did you eliminate any bodymounts?

    were your body mounts as thick as the originals?

    hope that helps!
    take a look at my photo page too, should answer some questions.

    also, MAKE your quarter panels....paid 110 for two sheets of stainless, compared to 180 for one steel from ccot. plus, with the scrap, we got stainless kick panels :D
