    its junk, send it to me.



    you are way further than some people are after a few years. if i were you i would ditch the flaps and visor then maybe put a different front clip on it, i never was a fan of 79 and 80 grilles. but thats just me. oh and im really jealous too. now wheel the sumbitch!

    You already have the Holy Grail=D60/true 1 ton gear. You call it a starting platform, where other guys would say it is already built.

    I only see 2 bad things about it:


    1. Its on a K30, needs to be on a K5:D :wink1:
    2. Its not mine:wink1: :D
