Yeesh that's really poor quality craftsmanship, that shop wont stay in business long if they keep it up.
Hopefully this new place will do it right.

Re: Project 71 long time with 4.8 vortec swap!!!

Beautiful bed. I am sure you will enjoy your swap. Remember you need to have VATs removed or it won't start (stay running). In addition, you need at least 58 psi from your fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator. Read my build thread for helpful hints
