  2. In definitely hoping she boogies, might end up replacing the rear end gears as it has 3.31s now
  3. The last week has been busy!!! •I moved the engine up 1.5" to clear for better steering geometry as I didnt want to spend the money on a custom made rack.. Sadly this means I can't run the tbss intake but luckily I had a complete ls6 "laying around". •Added gussets to the engine mounts and got the steering linkage routed.

  7. Thanks, helps that I used to do it for work haha If I did it again. I'd strip the interior and do a D-formula style cage as close to the body panels as possible. There will be plenty
  8. Thanks for the kind words guys. Did some more work this weekend, although I avoided the giant firewall hole I need to fix. Added some more supports to the chassis, added some gussets.

Luckily this is all readily available For clearance purposes I decided to run an aftermarket oil pan, only fun part is trimming the windage tray. Pretty simple process and otherwise there isnt much to it cleaning up the engine and trans, just a drill and some wire brush heads. And the very simple trans cross member I made out of some plate a

Bought another topper, it's in way better condition than the other but i did need to move the front of the bedsides in about an inch on each side. So I just cut and welded the tube. Found a chrome front clip at the junk yard so put that on. Changed my mind on the seats... again. Decoded on a bench and to remove the cage till a day when in decide to remove the interior trim completely for more room. Then I sho
