Cutting Begins

Spent some quality time with my plasma cutter and began rough cuts on the panel. Lots more cutting and clean up but it has begun.

Sub Frame In Body

Mated the sub frame to the body. It doesn't fit just yet but I'm working on it. Should be ready for the rear axle by Monday.

Sub Frame Installed

It's installed and bolted in. It fits great. The rear axle is complete. Sutton did an outstanding job on the 3.08 posi and new axles. I'll be installing it on Monday. Should get the entire rear suspension in then.

This Is Getting Serious

I'm neck deep in removing the dash to get down to the firewall. What a pain this is!

Rear Suspension Set

The rear suspension is pretty much done now. A little more cutting and then it will be ready for some sheet metal work. Here it is so far.
