Some Progress FINALLY

So—after 5 months of tearing down, cleaning, rebuilding and parts buying, I’m finally doing things that show progress. For months, everything I did looked like the previous days work. Building it up is much more rewarding than tearing it down and cleaning.

Really like your brakes and wheels. Those look like mine (Billet Specialties Fast Lanes), only larger. Can't wait to see more!

Thanks!

Yes, 4" on the fronts and 4 1/4" on the rears. Mine are 15".

That first ride may seem hard to imagine now, but keep working and you'll get there - and it will be worth it!

It's a shame to put cover that beautiful work with a body.
