Re: My Porterbuilt Experience...

Talk about a holy thread revival!

It's been 5 months since my last log in????!!! Man, I didn't realize how long I haven't been on!

To all those that left me PM's and comments, my apologies if I haven't replied. Just wanted to update the thread with a recent pic of Ruby at a recent car show in Hawaii.

Surprisingly, she took home the award for the best domestic on her first show out!

Anyway, more pics to come now that she's out and about once again! Here's one of the coolest shots from the show taken by Jeff Magno~

Good grief! I absolutely love those wheels. I think they just moved to the top of my list.

Re: My Porterbuilt Experience...

Hey man, did you notch your bed wood for the rear end to clear? Did you use the rubber bed pads or any shims to raise the bed a little to clear the frame rivets?

Thanks so much for the compliment! I'm running the PB stage1/2 kit that requires no bed cutting. I'll have more pics up soon!

Not sure if you're referring to the front or rear but either way, 12's will be a tight fit. You might want to check out http://chubtubz.com/ for the rear bed tubs and http://www.sloshtubz.net/products to see if they have something that might work for you.

Wow I made it all the way to page 5 and just realized you were in Hawaii also. Didn't even notice the 808 in your name��.
Awesome write up. Finishing up with a LS conversion in my '69 and looking to do an air ride setup after. Giving me a lot of inspiration. Thanks
