    Started as a trying to narrow the front and rear and make it a full convertible...somewhere along there we got sidetracked and said screw it. Plus with the 44's I had to do a little fender trimming. /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Still have a lot of tubing to do...but so far so good.

    So was you or the truck the one that needed to go on a diet? /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Seriously though, looks like you have a pretty good jump on things! I don't think that we'll be able to do anythin like that anytime soon but some day.......some day.

    Good luck to y'all in the future.

    actually no, he was suprised when he found out that we cut it up. i think that beer was probably the greatest influence...that and the fact that i like chopping $hit up.
