I want to acknowledge the amount of information and knowledge shared on this site. I don't post much, just research, but I really appreciate the teamwork shown on this site. Unity reminds me of the 24yrs I spent in the USA. "One team one fight"

Re: 64 Garage Build

Looking good! Always loved how the TPIs look. I used to run one in mine, so feel free to reach out if you run into any issues. Though with your hands on, you're likely more informed than I am at this point

Re: 64 Garage Build

Thanks, I like both colors as I'm having a hard time to compliment the wheels on the truck.
