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. Cut out the rear most fender support cross bar. Made it hard to get in and out of the rear. Will add something else in later. 20200919_185055.jpg.46dd0f0e86594d2d0659a9e4e687492c.jpg20200919_185051.jpg.f1dbe8937887906c5e495cf9142a5547.jpg20200919_185105.jpg.011a95a021eb0039b18c07ea687b486b.jpg

Following this build is making it hard for me to not cage up mine while it's stripped down.

 

Thanks a lot!  :brickwall:

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.

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.

I know you initially bought this truck to haul stuff, but what purpose is this truck going to serve when it is done? I could see it being both a track truck and a show truck.
