Pretty things are made to be pretty, not to try and compete with stuff done properly

a mock-up of the suspension cradle was created with cardboard and masking tape. While the cradle was being constructed, the front and rear fiberglass fenders got fitted.
i think thats when they stopped building.

That truck is probably the baddest chevy I've ever seen but I didn't pay attention to the suspension design. Too bad this did turn into a fail. Shame on the company for turning this out, they have a name to represent

saw this thing up close and it looks pretty cool with the paint job, but the fab work is obviously sub par... especially to come out of bigfoots garage!!!
