Nice new project! Got any bigger pics of the finished burb you sold? Looks like the direction I want to go with mine.

Thanks for the props! I just build 'em how I'm feeling at the moment. Some times they work out, and people actually like them.

I dig the rockstars. They look good on old Chevys. I can't wait to see this build after seeing your prior projects.

Re: 1972 custom 20 burb " the pearl" rockin the 8 lug

those rims look like they were stolen off a dream military truck(star and all). i'm partial to a navy-blue getup w/ insignias for proper effect, but an army or marine camo paint job would look slick on that truck! keep the chrome intact for contrast!

for a daily driver/tow vehicle - don't mess with the chassis (other than sway bars and maintenance issues). i love the factory look with my 72 burb c20, right down to the hubcaps. but some "bling bling" rims would be a hit at tuner style shows!

What is the offset and tire size of your Rockstars? Did you have to run spacers at all?

Thanks,
