    What does it take to get your vehicle to be a project vehicle?

    Take picture as you do things and make a write up(s) and submit it to Steve. If it's good it will probably end up here.
    Find some before shots is always nice so you can see the transformation.

    What, a ten bolt? [​IMG] About what Grim said, but if it dosn't change to much I might take it off, have to get some updates from Dep. I have to update Project Moneypit soon, it has changed ALOT, mostly been a time thing.

    After it is all together... I will look harder for a Dana 60. I have a pile of 10 bolt axle shafts. So after I run out, I will look harder also.

    I still have a few more things to gather up. After I get some good shots and all of the truck before. I will send them in with some explanations and such. See what you think and put it up if you want. I hope it doesnt take to long that you would take it down. Thats a depressing thought. I am planning on having everything done by the time spring runs start. Ideally it would be by February, but that may be pushing it.

    hmm... perhaps I will scan in pictures of `Grey Beast' as I work it up... its still in the planning/dream stage, so its not that impressive yet, but it would be nice to get a suburban listed online. even better would be to get the massive product hookups from the vendors like I suspect steve does, :-)

    at any rate, I'll have to do a bit of a job at cataloging it, and then turn it in, or something like that...
