Stripped to the bones:
Rear fenders bobbed, aint found fronts I like yet, no hood, running boards, interior, ( cept seat) single layer flooring, trunk is a box with battery and thats it. Oh yeah front and rear, and port hole glass only. Doors are bare inside. Stock firewall is gone, a single sheet of 16 gage replaced it. No heater, (dont need it) nor wipers. Body has been chopped and filled, sits right on the frame(no blocking)

Heck I didnt even paint it, just primer and sealer.

I can grab the body below the truck lid and pick it up and drag it about my shop. If I yank the flattie I can drag the front around also. 3 of us pick it up now and then, just because we can. (all 3 of us are over 250 lbs)
