Re: Mesquite 1966 C10 - LS3 W/Air Ride

Craig,
Joined about this time last year when I bought my '66. Drove it home, parked it in the shop and started tearing it down. It's funny how I started off to do just a few things and looked one day and on;y the cab was left on the frame.
Decided a few weeks ago to set aside the big block and go with a built LS3 and that's when I came across your journey.
WOW! Awesome job with the post and pics! What an adventure this post has been. Great read and Congrats, Congrats, Congrats! I'm a new grandpa and loving it.

I just got my frame back from paint and ready to start my build. You mentioned in your post about posting a build sheet or something of the sort. Were you able to do that?

Again, Awesome job!

Thanks for the kind words 66, and yes being a Grandpa is awesome

I never did put together a build sheet, one of the many things I thought I would do but never got around to it

I think most items are in the thread, if you have any detailed question don't hesitate to post them here. I will be glad to help or answer with anything you got.

Good Luck,
Craig

Thank you sir, this is for sure one of the coolest things I have done and been a part of. I try to keep my mouth shut if I don't have anything good to say, notice I said try...... I fail a lot as well

Thanks again!
