Were chipping away at it little by little. Were really stoked its starting to look like a truck again after what seems like miles of tig welding already. All feed back is appreciated! Let us know what you guys think!

Look into an ERod engine. GM makes them in a standard 5.7 LS all the way up to the LS7. Its bar coded and any smog shop can smog it.
