91 K5 -Procrastination Build - Daily Driver update

1st I'd like to say I'm king of procrastonation and this has been too long coming (about 3 yrs). :doah: I finally finished my rolling chassis enough to put the body on it so Slamchops helped me get it done last Sat. I had beem dreading this part so hopefully, now that the worst is over things will move a little faster now.

Final assembly specs :

*454 carb'd, steel crank, 9.4 comp, 7/16 rods, roller cam, 781 heads, Sanderson shorty headers & single exhaust
*4spd w/ ORD 32 spline conversion, hydro clutch
*ORD Doubler twin sticked w/ 1410's
*Jana76 (D60 w/ 70 gears) w/ Power Lock, 5.86's, 35 spline outers, Spicer locking hubs
*D70HD w/ spool, 5.86's, narrowed to srw width, disc brakes using front D60 rotors & calipers
*Front lift: 2.5" lift 52" springs
*Rear Lift: stock 56's, Zero Rates, ORD 2.5" shackle flip
*Weld D7 16.5x12 wheels & wheels w/ 43" SX's
*8k Warn winch in Diy4x bumper center / Diy4x rear bumper

Yeah, plans are to take it to Tx in Nov for some tube work. I'll only have a couple of days there so I hope we can get a fair amount done. My plan is for it to be similar to yours and Rene's style.

I do appreciate your help too Tom! Without your help steam cleaning the body it would still be full of SPIDERS! Btw you are still helping when it's time to gut the interior, right? :D

how much lift is that...im assumuming like 2 inch 52s in the front??

Yeah, 2.5" Superlift 52's with the overload pulled. The rear is 2.5" ORD flip plus 4" BDS 56's (backwards) with the overload pulled and a Zero Rate. It sits high in the back so I'll probably need to pull the Zero Rates out but I'm not going to change anything until the rest of the drivetrain is in for final ride height.

Chicken :D The inside's not so bad, mostly just ants. I got some Spectracide I'm going to spray the underside with, I'll hit the inside once all the trim is gone.

Bug bombs work on ants? I thought that stuff was just for fleas or something. :dunno:
