You still have a little ways to go, but if you work really hard I might let you go on a wheeling trip with me.

stan i would be honored to wheel you err wheel with you

not to much going on with the build right now but i got the frame pretty much bare metal
trying to decide what paint i should paint it with

also need opinions on running a np241 t case with the 360 buck sye kit
since i wouldn't need an adapter for the trans and i could still use a cable driven speedometer

good news is that my 350 is ready for pickup so i can get that put together over the weekend hopefully

wheels are moving very slow but i got the tub powerwashed and now i am patching some floors and sides of the tub
next would be ordering and installing btf comp corners and bed liner coating the inside and under side of the tub
still need to figure out what i want to use on that

the engine is almost all together just waiting on my heads and then i can start mocking it up in the frame
gotta get chop over here to help out with the rear 4 link and should be on my way to a never ending project

still finding more rust under bondo wow what a great idea i think i will paint it with a roller when i finish this up

anyway i got my body lift finally and some por15
need to order my corners so i can finish the patch work

pass side floor it was no where near this bad but i am sick of rust so i just cut the crap out of it



pass side rocker looked like this after i ground off about 1-2 gallons of body filler




got this patched up



with this made on a bench vise




i am using 16 gauge sheet metal so its pretty thick for body work but it is tough and should last along time
