    Well here it is folks /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Here you can see one of the tabs I have welded on for when the suspension gets flexy. Now I can hook up a chain from the frame to the axle and jack from the body while lifting the tire at the same time.

    And here's one of Brown Betty with her newest "performance upgrade". My first ck5 decals /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif I think it looks sharp with the white top, white rims, and white decals. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    I'm in the middle of doing a blitz to get her all ready for the Blazer Bash. It's gonna be cutting it close but I'll make it /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I've got a detroit and a steering box brace on the way from ORD. I have to make a new hand throttle and get a new carb on it. I've also got everything I need to make my quick release doors now too. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif I still have to replace all the windows that had been smashed out as well. I'm running out of time though and not sure if I will be able to get the disc brake conversion ordered in time or not. We will see.

    I love this sh!t /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif to /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    That brings back some memories. I had a 78 the same color about 12yrs ago. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Except mine had a lot of the IA lightening going on (RUST)

    The only reason this one doesn't is because I flew to AZ to go and buy it /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif Completly rust free when I bought her. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
