Frame off LS 5.3 CJ-7 build

Hey guys I'm actually not new to the forum but I forgot all my account information for my old one and so I've created a new account. I started out with a rusted out 82 Laredo with a tf999 and a 258. We did a body off restoration welding a lot of 1/2 in steel around the frame to cover weak rusted out frame portions. And also swapped in an LM7 2002 5.3 V8 with the matching 4l60E transmission out of a wrecked Silverado. We used numerous adapter kits from different companies due to quality and also price. I have been working on this project since I turned 15 and hope to soon finish it up. Pictures will come soon

Thanks it's been a long time coming I just recently spent many days trying to figure out a misfire problem I was having in cylinders 2468 and after buying new filters changing the spark plugs and cleaning the injectors we realized that it was just those horribly designed spark plug wires gm put on the ls style motors

I am currently bleeding the brakes and am having trouble getting all the air out of the system. Hopefully by this evening they'll be done

Also forgot to mention converted all my gauges to the intellitronix 6 gauge panel. Made a custom dash using a cad file I drew up and cut it with a Flo-Jet and changed the tub and front clip to fiberglass (hints the hood pins in the hood).
