    Thank you very much. It has been a very cool project. I probably would not do it again, but I have had so much fun doing it and seeing people's reactions when they hear what I am doing. It has taken me about 2 years to do what I have done, but again I work 50 hours a week and I was finishing my degree the first year and a half. The majority of the transformation has happened in the last 5 months or so.......I am thinking about getting a membership to the site and then maybe I can get more pictures over hear.......

    I helped my buddy do his Sub last summer - we did it a little differently than you - we cut the front vertical part of the Blazer tub - just ahead of the top about 2" - and went vertical - then straight across the top - then molded the Sub & Blazer top together. He cut the Blazer tub just above the horizontal body line - it went together pretty slick -

    It was very sick - but then he got tired of it and sold it - I couldn't believe it!

    That's really awsome looking... What color of green paint is that on the front half of the burb?
