Well here are some progress shots of today. My jackstand decided it wanted to cut the tip of my thumb off so it collapsed on me and took it down to it hanging on its skin and then somehow the air hammer turned on and hammered my leg and i think dented my shin. Oh and to top it off it rained on me today and the only place i could hide was under my flared fender well! But i got the radius arms on and now its time to deal with that damn death wobble lol.
On there way home from murrieta:

Pretty much what is in the works for this weekend are new radius arms. I'm gonna start designing and cutting stuff out on friday since i got the day off and hopefully finish welding them on sunday. We will see how things go. I will take pictures of the process and keep everything updated as I go. Also in the next month or two I will be designing a new set of beams to go along with the radius arms. Wish me luck!

Cancel the chevy lol. Mu buddy got cold feet and doesn't want to pull it yet so since i need an engine for my truck im pulling it this weekend and getting a 302. No computer or anything so it will be an easy swap. Pics to follow as the engine gets pulled. I start tomorrow!

Go damn. Engine is still running so im not gonna pull it till it seizes up, thats the plan. Hopefully im gonna be jumping on some coilovers that went up for sale on DR and then building the engine cage and redoing the rear bedcage to accommodate no bed.

I have been really busy helping my buddy do his truck, here is a updated shot of his. Its a 85 toyota fully caged and has a total chaos front end uniballs.
