Its been a while,but heres some updates. Got the frame finished(for the most part) Frame rails moved in 3" per side,followed by a notch to the inner skin. Coil over shock x-member welded in,along with the brace for the TRZ ARB. Installed QA1 single adj, shocks in the front with some tubular A-arms from Speedway motors. Also picked up a set of rear 15x12 Billet Street Lites and some used 315 Drag Radials for mock up.

oop's,sorry about the 2 big pictures. As far as the body goes. I decided to replace both rocker panels and started to weld up some holes in the fire wall and smooth it out. Hopefully I can get the body in primer in the next week or so,then I'll start fixing the lowers on the doors. My Glasstek 4" cowl hood and fiberglass rear bumper showed up a couple of weeks ago. Still need too get the deck lid and dash from VFN. I'll post more in the next couple of weeks when it looks like I made somemore headway.
