Very cool, nothing to make you feel better than pulling something like that off. I found it cool that you are all the way over in Cheyenne, and you are doing the exact same thing my brother and his son are doing at the exact same time over here in California.

Here are a few of his project photos.

Here is my brothers email to me today,

OK here are some pix of how the truck is coming, we just chopped it 4" and we already channeled it 6" and stepped the frame 6", 2" dropped axle and the tires will be 600 and 700 16's.. We need to C the frame above the rear axle another 6" .. I say WE but he has done 99% the work with my guidance..

The block in the frame is just for mock up, he already has his 401 Buick Nailhead built and ready to bolt in.
