Ive gotta head to work in about 30 min,but this is what im working on before I go..got kids sports tonight .may not get a chance later..I was messing around with a color combo for the engine,but Im going to drill through the a-arm and run a bar through it too..then break it loose with the ends of the bar glued to the frame..then it should move up and down..hopefully..lol

thanks..I wasnt to sure if this was gonna work....the wire I used to make the spring stays pinched when I lower it,but If I leave it in 1 position technically doesnt mean its not adjustable..lol

BTW where did you find a c10 model at?..I want one of those to build too..I just won a bid on ebay for a nissan hardbody,but since I slammed this truck im going a different route on the new nissan model when I finish this..plus I really like how you have your 4 link triangulated over the DS..

got home late,..didnt get much done,but had a few ideas and started on them..smooth bed floor..doing the coils on the back...I was thinking since the rear actually works and im happy with that ... I want to add more detail,so I might make it stationary and just go for detail

I found it at WalMart a few years ago.They are really hard to find now. When you find them now they're like almost $100.
