Well, i had a computer crash on me and am looking for all the pics that I backed up, but this is what I found on the camera. All the body parts are off at paint shop, hopefully I will have it back soon. I'm trying to be patient, the guy that I have doing it does wonderful work and from talking with a few other guys and seeing his work he is worth the wait.




The frame and axle housings have been blasted and recoated. All new SS brake lines and fuel lines run. RE 4.5" lift installed. Doesn't show it here but TRF done with HD tie rod and drag link. The 4.2L that came with it was shot so I found a 4.0L out of a 94 GC and mated that to the original T5. Haven't done wheels and tires yet because I'm afraid that I wont be able to get it out of the garage, I have 80" clearence and when I did a mock up with the 31's that are on it I could just barely get it out. Kinda at a stopping point without the tub so like I said, hopefully I get it back soon so I can send more pics and get some more work done.

Getting Closer

A few weeks ago after getting it back from the body shop.




Loaded it back on the trailer for it's last trip to the body shop. Having some alignment issues and gonna let the experts mess with it. Was getting ready to start throwing tools.



Hopefully have it back next week and can start it. Then some axle work, wheels and tires, and custom driveshafts and should be on the road.

It's looking great. What part of Houston are you in and did you use a commercial body shop for the paint work, or an individual?
