Great work so far Greg, the ride height is dead-on! Where did you get those rims, I need to get myself a set of those beauties!

I got 'em loose at a show/swap meet. I believe they're Dubs wheels. Thank you.

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

Very nice work on the frame. This is a nice tutorial on how to pinch the rear frame rails and make room for those fat tires. You have my attention sir.

Looks cool Greg! Can't wait to see how you finish it up. I've always wanted to put a stock body on the Vetagin chassis,but never have gotten around to it. Don't make the mistake I did recently and make sure you also place your driveshaft in during your mock up. It's no fun having to hack up/repair/re-primer/repaint a floor pan during final assembly. :(
