Default My M715 build

I made a few changes to my original post, included a couple before pics. Also, thanks to you all for the positive feedback! It means a lot. My goal is to have the nicest M715 in existence.
I had to sell my beloved CJ8 Scrambler to finance this build so I hope it will be worth it


Here are a few pictures of my 1967 Kaiser M715 build so far

I moved the springs under the frame to match GM perch width with a GM front 60 and a ford rear 60. I am running a Fuel injected GM 350/ SM465 and a Dodge divorced NP205. I also hot dip galvanized the frame and had it powder coated. I have a FS jeep power steering box I ported and tapped and have a 1.75 ram on it. It has 39” tires.

Body wise I shaved the door handles and smoothed the front turn signal block off plates. Painted it British racing green and silver along with ghosting the flames plus it cannot be seen but I also ghosted a skull face in the stars. The numbers are from my Uncles unit from his two tours of duty in Viet Nam.
