slamming a 65. PICS!

I picked this thing up for 1500 bucks off some kid locally. It was a peice of ****, no lie, tons of bondo, gallons to be more exact, rust, and so much other ****. Now after about 3 grand, its coming together.

truck is going to be slammed, on factory wheels, painted gold flake, and white walls, BUT, i notched it so if i got the money, i could tuck 24s.
painted satin black with gold flake scallops and cream pinstriping, Chopped 3 inches, shaved rain gutter, shaved mirriors, dash, emblems, tailgate. Custom made grill(photos once its done about 1/2 way finished now) and a built 352/c6.

how it looked when i bought it.





huge notch.

lower link bars. and cross member mock up

bag mounts/drive shaft tunnel.

just a neat photo welding overhead


more photos soon, im going to finish my triangulation link bars tomorrow. then ill have pics of the whole back half put together.

not to shabby for my first bag job/time ever using a tube bender.

It looks very good but you better put some more strength on the bottom bar if you are going to bag it there.

yeah i know. The link bars arent finished yet. The steel yards where closed for the weekend. The supports for the lower link bars are going to be the same as the rest of the tube. .120 wall 1.5 OD DOM, But it will be bent near the axel and taper into the link bar.and im going to plasma cut something cool looking to fit in the gap that will be left there.
