Have to see if it is better to get the bag set up I have upgraded and working right or go to tube A-arms and do coil over? She's a little shaky at 65, but once she hits 90 its pretty smooth
Whatever you do itís gonna be slick!

Ended up going with 16 x 8 powder coated Steed D rims with BF G-Force 255/50R16's upfront and the biggest I could find Toyo poxes 275/60/16's in the rear. Also installed 1-1/2" spacers to push them out a little.
I like slots too but the new D-window wheels look really good. I'd like to get something similar. Is Steed the manufacturer?

Keep at it. The truck is cool!

Thanks. Rims are Pro Comp BP Series 52, which are powder coated. Got all (4) for under $100 on eBay new in the box. Bought one at a time and took about a month and a half. Cheapest one I got was $11, with free shipping. If you're willing to wait and make sure all the part numbers are the same, the deals are out there.

After a couple of unsuccessful attempts to find a hood, I've decided to modify the one I have. I'm staying away from the common cowl look, while trying to keep with Chevy themed styles. Found a 67' Chevelle SS hood on CL and I'm going graft the scoops on, we'll see what happens. Already started surgery, so there is no talking me out of cutting up the hood .
