    I made some good progress this weekend, just a few things left on dis assembly and i'll be ready to rock. Decided on going with the 3" relocation kit for the springs. Go big or go home i suppose. SO, i ordered the relocation kit, frame connectors, and a full trunk floor this weekend. I think ill have my hands full very soon :D

    Looks llike a solid foundation. You have some interesting ideas, good luck on the build. Should have let me drive the old girl to the store before you ripped er' apart. The 6 cylinder / stick combo is kind of cool too! Jason Cunningham. Calgary,Alberta,Canada

    I have both tail lights with decent chrome, driver quality. Both lenses in good shape.
    Also the DODGE trim that runs between both tail lights. Small ding in top lip. I'll check on other trim on the car.

    made some progress today, got the majority of the holes welded up in the engine bay and ground off, tomorrow i plan on finishing the engine bay up, gotta make a few patch panels where the battery sat but no biggie. After the engine bay is finished i'll move to installing the frame connectors...(waiting on a spot weld bit for the trunk) lol, anyhow hope to have her ready for a little blasting in about a week or so if all goes well...
