That would be sweet, but I agree, shipping would be way too much. I'm sure I can find a bar somewhere around GA. There's a few places that I need to go to, just haven't had the time this semester to do so

Re: Our "What are we going to do?" 66 Suburban Build

Glad to hear it's back together & running! Hopefully it all continues to work well from here on out. I know y'all are ready to just enjoy the fruits of your labor. Any thoughts yet on the headlights? I've noticed lots of folks switching to LED headlights these days, even on more modern (but not new) stuff.

Preliminary thoughts on lights are that they are fairly bright, low beam is the upper half and high beam is upper and lower at the same time...with that said, I haven't been out at night with them yet.

We'll see how long they last...
