Its on Air with 3" drop spindles in the front. I still want to put a small C notch in the back to bring it down another 2" in the rear but that will come latter. I dont intend on this thing laying frame or anything but I want it to sit nice and low when at a show or something.

I just cleaned up the old ones. They were painted over from the last paint job years ago and when I cleaned the paint off they looked like brand new.

Re: finally put some color on this thing.

Just another update from the weekend. It was a long day Sunday but new grille and bumper are on doors all put back together and started installing the new side trim. I would love to have this thing done this week but work calls so It will still be a couple of weeks.
