Truck is looking good! It looks like you found a good shop too, those guys know what they are doing, I can tell by the work so far and support bracing they are using..... Keep us updated.

Re: The Burb a long time coming

... Need to make the call to Justin @ Scotts Hotrod and Chassis to get the final paperwork done so they can get started on building it.

Was happy to find someone to do what I want and can see my ideas.

Re: The Burb a long time coming

Thanks ... was only wanting some subtle changes externally ... that only aficionados like us would say, "Hey Wait a Minute"

Gas filler relocation

Shaved Aerial

Shave the third door handle to give the illusion of a 2 door having the sides match.
Figured it would be better than adding a handle to the drivers side rear, maybe not as funny ... but better aesthetically

Then the final touch will be the ghost racing stripes painted over Tungsten Gray ... similar to the ones on my vet but reversing the color scheme

Re: The Burb a long time coming

Wow looks great. I'm planning on putting mine on the rotisserie soon and will have to copy the bracing. Any shots of how the rotisserie arms attach to the shell? Also are they welding in the patches?

Thanks for the picture. Did they weld in the cross bracing?

Re: The Burb a long time coming

Justin over @ Scott's Hot Rods and Chassis said they are starting my chassis this month and would send some build pics.

I still can't believe we are building this thing ... from hey my truck needs some work to ...hey which year of SEMA is it going to make an appearance at.

Re: The Burb a long time coming

Also came up with a new item to make the interior guy roll his eyes ...

Since I have been told by some that I am already committing sacrilege in so many ways on this project by cutting it and adding a Double Din, to setting the system up to run a FI on a lil twin screw on Flex Fuel ...

So I am now going to need a Overhead / Headliner Monitor POD ... cause the interior is going full out digital with a touch screen, minus the HDX, doors, seat and window switches.

I figure I am going I might as well go big.
