This is a killer build you've done some great work with the sheet metal. Makes me dread cutting into mine.

Thank you. It was a lot of fab work but really wasn't that bad. I'm just glad that part of the build is behind me LOL

Re: New project : 72 Suburban

Last week while on vacation the Suburban touched the ground for the first time in almost 10 months. Got to drive it for the first time. Runs and rides great! This week I'm just trying to wrap up a few minor things and Friday morning we are off to Good Guys in Columbus OH.

That's a good feeling, what do you have for springs in the front? Stance looks great
