    Haha Bullnerd your not kidding, who ever was under there had it good! Ya luckily the body is pretty solid, there is some pretty bad rust on the passenger side just under the drip edge of the cab, but it sounds like I’ll need to cut the top of the cab anyways to put the cage in anyways? So I’ll...

    Rodger that! I figured on selling it if there wasnt anything I could pull off of it. Taylor isn’t your rig in a pretty cool video with you and Janes Caballio del Diablo? gotcha Gill, king pins is what I’m after then. I feel like autofab basically has pretty much everything Ill need for the...

    Alright so tear down has officially started. True to form my planned time to work on it got cut in half and a simple task took waaay longer than it should have, but the bench seat is out and what was left of the floor board matting is out. It’s the first time I’ve actually really looked it over...

    Nice! I like the idea of being able to use what I already have. If my end goal is to be able to race it at Norra in the legend class then I also want to build it to where it’s a strong and reliable as that class allows. So when it comes the drivetrain and suspension I’m also fine running what is...

    Well Shoot Bert I’ll have to explore that more once I get that motor out and see what I’m working with once I get it stripped down, for $7,500 that performance is kinda hard to beat. I wonder how the rear ending would hold up to that? For the trans I kinda liking the idea of a c6 with a manual...

    43mod good advice, lord knows the willing helpful hands of my 2 year old and 4 year old will eventually show up to “help speed things up” but hey that’s what it’s all about! I’ll do that Bro_Gill, I know I definitely want it to scoot along relatively effortlessly! Nothin like an old rig that...

    I’m gunna crawl around in there too in just a bit. I like the idea of being able to utilize the block I already have, a dollar saved is a dollar I can spend on something else for the truck! Come New Year’s Day I think I’ll start the tear down process, I mainly want to pull the truck back out of...

    Any point in keeping the 360, boring it out and breathing some new life into it, rotating assembly, heads etc? Or just scrap it and try to find a Windsor? Any issues with Cleveland’s? I’m for sure a little more familiar with the 351w’s. Hey gotta pay for the name right!?

    Ya it currently has a terminally ill 360. I’m trying to decide what power plant seems to be reasonable with dependability/get up and go. Ya luckily all this build really needs is just time and money fortunately jajaja anyone know where I can find an abundance of it? Ha I’m looking forward to it...
