    Havent posted this in a while so lets hear it, current rig projects? Mine are decidely moving forward.

    -We scrapped the MOG AXLE swap for a later date since our new house needed new vinyl windows which are $ 3800.00 and the axles were 4000.00, see the equasion /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif oh well, next summer maybe unless I find a better deal.

    -got all my FI swap stuff a while back, got a hell of a deal off ebay in a chat room, some seller got hosed on a payment and needed money fast /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif*BLING* he got it, 120.00 shipped for EVERYTHING to do the swap.

    -springs getting swapped out for longer ones.

    -going truggy of course, using a stock front clip but removing 12 inches from the center so it still looks like a chevy /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    -just got some 39.5's for it

    - now looking for a d60 /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    -ripping out the 383 when i do the truggy work to rebuild it.

    Thats all i can think of for now, enough for the next 3 months to do while working on our new house.

    I am currently working on my flat belly skid plate. Will be installing disk brakes in the rear this weekend and installing my front locker early next week. Oh and I ned to redo my exhaust so it's tucked up above the frame rails. All this needs to be done by Thursday so I can go to the Hammers on Friday!! /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    Well I'll be replacing a window in my son's room that he threw a toy through. Yes through. By the way he's 2 and a 1/2.

    He'll be learning how to pitch later this weekend so he can be the youngest major league hurler ever. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Good luck to y'all in the future.

    Just finished installing longer rubber brake lines to get rid of the factory ones + drop bracket that came with the Rancho lift. Had to put new steel lines in too. Trying to eliminate a leak at the prop valve and get all the air out. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif

    Took the inner fender out on the passenger side to help get the brake lines in easier, also battery tray. Since they're out, I'm gonna get the rust and old paint off and redo with POR-15. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Still waiting on my EFI upgrade kit from customefis.com. It's been 3-4 months or something since I ordered. I do NOT recommend dealing with that guy unless you are extremely patient. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif

    The other summer project is to gut out all the blue interior and replace with black to match my new yellow paint job. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
