Re: Used Parts Build

Also... Ordered these!

They should fit really well. I made my notch too high initially and want to bring it down. Got them from Applied Racing Technologies. They are 2x3x.120 and a bit lighter duty than I want but I will tie them to my four link cross member with some 1.5x.120 tube. The rear of the frame only supports half the bed and the fuel tank. I think it will be fine. Plus each rail weighs significantly less than each of my damn over built notches.

Re: Used Parts Build

I took a day off and worked through the weekend to try to get some work done to it. Ended up being really hot so I didn't get as much done as I wanted. Here are the pics:

Pushed my brother's Nova out, cleaned the garage, and pushed mine it. The differential is all jacked up and it took 4 people to push it up the driveway...

Old backhalf


Cutting the old backhalf off and found a wasp nest. Holy **** there were tons!

Re: Used Parts Build

A pic with my gf for height reference.

Did it all in 3 days. Need to do all the tube work now. The front has 3 2x4's under the cross member because I need to swap out the oil pan still.
