    for me its

    1) trim the fenders more to fit the 35's under full flex
    2) find a doner truck for some new axles
    3) fix any remaining rust
    4) do the body mounts
    5) paint it

    Thanks Rob...i may take you up on that. Ideally I am hoping to find a beater with a decently running 6.2 liter diesel if I can.

    At the moment it smokes when it's cold (5 minutes or so) and it doesn't have as much oil pressure as it should. Prolly about 27 lbs max when it's warm and on the freeway/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif If it's like every other sbc I've had it should go another 50,000 miles though. It still makes great power...

    Well since I just bought this /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif a few months ago I have a long wish list. My too do list before the end of the year is pretty short.

    (1) Get newly aquired hummer wheels modified for correct
    backspacing.
    (2) Install zero rates from ORD on the current rear susp-
    ension, to get rid of that saggy but.
    (3) Save up enough money to get 42" TSL's to mount on
    modified hummer wheels.

    If I get all this done by the end of the year /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gifI can get started on the suspesion mods by the first of the year /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Fixing-

    1. Redoing all brake lines- with the Extended - losing brakes SUX!

    2. Replacing E-Brake Cables-

    3. Getting Passanger side exhaust redone-

    4. finding some smaller tires for winter.

    Over the winter I will be ordering all new weatherstrip, new do-daad's etc.. so my spring list is a LOT longer than my winter list.

    only thing I really NEED to do is the brakes, and remember to drive it every couple of days, but can't do that till I get the brakes fixed.

    Wait till you see my spring list /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif
