Thanks for the kind words. There probably a nice middle ground some ware between what I'm doing and the pie cut thing. I am really happy with the way it's coming out, but it's a boat load of work.Just saw this thread for the first time today. Nice work on the inner fenders @brosky your making me wanna fix my hacktastic pie cuts on my front and rear fenders! @nukegoat here is some pain for your eyes from the poser crowd

The problem is that the radiator support and crap on the inner fenders expects some sort of structure.If the wheelin in my area wasn’t so destructive to sheet metal I’d care a bit more what my truck looks like. After I raisin out this body far enuf I’ll end up cutting the roof off and caging it.
I definitely agree. I believe I already have problems such as the hood release not working all the time, body lines etc...because my inner and outer fenders are not bolted together any longer. I have almost all the parts to link the front so I’ll have some additional structure in the engine compartment. That will happen well before the roof goes. My buddy who builds rock buggies/race cars will hopefully be doing the work so it doesn’t look like my inner fenders...The problem is that the radiator support and crap on the inner fenders expects some sort of structure.
On the road it rides smoother and is more stable. The dual rate coils help the ride the 3" wider stance make it more stable. Noticeable loss of power over the 37"How was the shakedown run? Noticeable gains?
