Re: Project "Nether~Storm" 72 swb

Unfortunately that happens a lot more than we know. There are a lot of people out there who just want to make a quick buck, or don't know any better and just cover things up. I know it sucks (I've been there before, and will be again when I tear into mine) but it will be worth it in the end when you fix everything the right way. Good luck. It looks like you are off to a good start so far.

Re: Project "Nether~Storm" 72 swb

The messed up stuff isnt as bad as I thought. just tard moves... lol. I found bathroom caulk around the heater box (still not dry) found a new pet. ( mouser in the air vent) jury rigged power steering pump lines that had a nice chunk missing from them. Im sure the list will continue.
but back to my update of accomplisments yesterday. had a time getting the pics uploaded but Got it so here they are. about 8 hrs. of me n Storm time...





A little poor man brew to help me along

Cab stayed due to my lack of strength at the end of the day...
But all in all, Alot got done. Once I get the cab off I can get my deep notches in and maybe blast and some paint.

Cool...I grew up over that way. My mom and step dad still lives on 49th street where i lived as a kid.
The 67 in my sig and avatar pic is my step dads that I restored and modded for him, you probably have seen it since he lives so close. But the 67 is at my house in White Plains right now.

Re: Project "Nether~Storm" 72 swb

Well Last night I finished rewiring my engine bay harness. Just gotta finish the looming. And found some a pic of a concept I've been working on in my head. But mine will be revese the way this guy did it. Now I just have to work out the details of the pop hatch, maybe even a remote trunk latch like the caddy.


What do yall think?

Re: Project "Nether~Storm" 72 swb

Haven't gotten much done, due to work but I did manage to get a few things made. I made a 2 frame braces to replace the not so nice looking ones and a low profile adj. Transmission brace so I can run My exhaust in the frame rails. Hopefully I can get them powder coated this next week. Got them in Primer now.

Removed the crooked x-member and replaced it with my own make.
Not bolted in yet but it fits perfect.

Re: Project "Nether~Storm" 72 swb

Im thinking of replacing the rear frame when I put in my deep notches. I did a lil mock up on sorta what I think it might look like. I wish I had a welder here so I could get this started. Let me know what yall think. I think I made my notches deep enough. I did one mock up with the wheel. I believe after the tires get mounted I will still lay frame.
