    i have been building this rig off & on forever now, i caught the bug again & decided to make a run at finishing it. ordered line locks, cutting brake, adj prop valve, & some misc engine parts this week.

    last week i re-wired most of it, put the doubler & tranny in, aligned some of the body panels. this week will try to plumb the brakes & drop the engine in.

    for some of u unfamiliar w/ my rig some quick specs.
    547 caddy stroker, 400/203/205, drw d60 & 70hd w/ 5.13's & detroits, 56" rears & soon to be 56" frts. h-1's & 42" tsl's

    on to the pics:

    u would think i would look a little happier than that seeing how i am getting to work on my own crap.

    Wow. Really nice rig. Where'd you get the gears for your D70HD? Are they same as a regular D70?

    thx

    randy's ring & pinion, i believe they are the same as a regular 70, it is just the hd has larger bearings.


    thanks guys my linelocks came in today so plan on finishing the brake system & getting the engine in this week-end.

    Too be honest, not much further than before - rolling chassis with the gears set up. I got moving on it good with TARussell and got the axles built (Thanks Tom! :thumb:) and under it but had to quit to fix a few things on the crew cab so it'd be ready for selling. All that's behind me now so I can get back on it and try to play catch-up with you big dawgs. :bow:

    Do you have a side pic of the pass side where you need to fab a box? I am just curious as I am going to be doing my new tunnel here soon and wouldlike to see if I will run into a problem with covering triple stick setup.
