Amazing! I love it. You have an awesome shop and fab skills. Wish you were my neighbor. We have a lot more in common than my current ones who don't even have tools. Subscribed. Love the originality and can't wait to see the rest!

I like it. I think it looks great as it is. A nice paint job would ruin the look IMHO.

Eating any BBQ at Clem's ??.......

Completely IN on this build! Way COOL!! What's your plans for the rear wheels?? Rearend?? What's going under the hood?

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

Haha! so you know my pain of blairsville. Not lately but Papa Sals I have lol


Later on I'd like to cut up the axle to fit larger rear wheels to get extra smoke with an amc 360 or chevy 350. but for now keeping the dana 44 where its at and throw in a different engine after all this. I do plan on painting it....but the original paint scheme but with some pearls and metallics to be a little different. Under the usps logo I was thinking "Pushing the envelope a quarter mile at a time" or something corny like that

I'm digging the build, but not digging the cutting/welding of the knuckles.

I'm from about an hour south. I actually toured the facility years ago after high school. Very nice place. Decided that as much as I liked working on cars for a hobby, it just wasn't what I wanted to do for a living.
Looking back now, I wish I would have went. Although it seems as there is a lot more offered now then there was back then. Then it seemed it was mostly basic mechanics. Looks like a lot they teach a lot more of the custom work now (the fun stuff).

Keep posting your progress.

Wish there was another way to do it but I've put more strength into them than what there was before so I'm fine with it

dude this is awsome looking, the chopped top really makes it look better proportioned. Are you going to paint it one-tone or go with the postal style paint-job?


if it was mine i'd go with amberfire pearl or impact orange, put some fuel hostages or soft 8s on it, some nice agressive 31s and DD that. bada$$ dude keep it up!
