We need to be friends. I can tear a car to the frame rails and rebuild it. I can weld anything you need welded. But I am TERRIBLE at body work and painting. That is art. Looks great.

LOL well ill be happy to teach you... the sad thing is i truly HATE doing paint/body work! Almost as much as i hate doing upholstery.

I love building engines, fabricating, doing custom suspension. I managed to keep this particular skillset a secret for eight years, lol. But after we hired n fired 3 ****tard "painters" in a row i got tired of it and started doing em.

Curse of being "head mechanic" at a mom n pop resto shop.

Translation... I do EVERYTHING.

It can be a bit much sometimes.

Thanks for posting your process. That's a lot of work but the results were worth it.

Maybe you can teach me too!

And just in case anybody has gotten the wrong idea, with all the work thats been going into getting her cosmetics ironed out...

No. She is not destined for mall crawler duty.





This guy don't build mall crawlers.

What's it like with 3.07s and 30s? I've never run any tire bigger than a 235/75R15 with those gears. Now, I find myself looking at 245/75R16s and 31x10.5s while trying to convince myself it won't be that bad...

I dig it, cruises good on the hwy, decent acceleration. 31s would be a bit much, especially with mine being a stick.

Ok i guess its update time.

Woohoo, lol, cupholders that don't rob me of a functional Ebrake.


New calipers.


And the exterior is nearly done for now. Got the lower section bedlined, matte black badging, and finally got my front bumper.
