    Its ugly, gross, and ripped apart. No engine, no tranny, no tcase, gutted dash, no booster, no column, rotten rockers and quarters - you get the picture.

    The best I can come up with is to save all 4 back doors, windshield, front door glass, and quarter glass as spares for my '84 Burb - an possibly even the frame (!) in case I want to do a 4x4 swap.

    Then I think - that's a LOT of work /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Can anyone else think of something neat to do with this thing (besides crumbling to the wife and have it hauled away)? /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    I'm with tazz! Turn that sorry excuse for the wife to yell at ya into a beast of a trail rig. Most of us couldn't bear the thought of hacking ours up, but you've got the perfect start! No doors, no windows, no body work!!! /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    I actually have to agree with everyone else: the sheetmetal on my K20 is too good for me to cut it up, but yours seems to be in the perfect shape to do some `lightening' and `bobtailing' ( should be able to cut about a ton off of the vehicle through sheetmetal removal)

    do it, you know you want to... things like steering columns, and drivelines are easy to come by. as long as you know how to weld, or know someone who can weld well, you should be able to do all the cage work wihtout any real dificulty.
