Smile my 64 build now with a dropmember

finally brought the 64 out of storage and started working on it again. got the dropmember installed and will start redoing the rear set up next week to get the rear on down to match the front. see if i can't get this thing driving by the end of the summer. once i finish up the suspension i will work on finishing up the fire wall and engine compartment. I will post more pics as the updates come. the hardest part will be tearing is all back down for paint and final body work once it is all assembled

Cool ride man. I'd like to see more pics of that notch setup, looks creative on the passenger side.

Re: my 64 build now with a dropmember

Ok I have a question...what'd you different between the latest pic and the 1st group of pics??

The 1st group of pics, the pic of your truck parked outside, it looks like it wasn't tucking rim. The latest pics of it sitting inside a garage it's tucking some rim!!

This looks like a great project, gives me inspiration!!

Great progess, keep us posted!!
