Re: my 80 build

I forgot I started this thread, I added a few things to my truck, Cragar street Stars 15x7 with 215/70 in front and 15x8 with 275/ 60 in back, and removed the drop shackels, because it was lower in the rear than the front even with taller tires in the back, and it rode like a wagon, a power steering gear box, it handles a lot better, about to add air horns, a new billet grille, new brake calipers, because right now I have light duty calipers and heavy duty rotors not a good thing, In the future I might add 91 blazer grille, amp and more speakers, dress up the motor with new pulleys and components, shave the fire wall, add a/c,

There 4 total in my neibor hood all the time
what seen in my pics
78 black and blue long bed
73 k5 35 4" lift and his brother has 79 swb 4wd
and theres a guy that has a 7? long bed on a street over
and theres about 3 others a couple blocks away
yes the panels are nice, I can't wait until I get my interior coverd
and reason I got rid of grille is because it was broke, I might sent the grille of for powder coated purple
