The oil pan was sectioned, so now the engine is in and putting all the pieces back together to fire it up hopefully in the next few weeks.
Fininshed the sound deadening(huge truck=lots of deadening), so the interior will be put back in.
So after its up and running, the AC will be figured out.
I cant wait to have it rolling under its own power soon!!!

Pics!
Just waiting on the new radiator, the front seats are in and it feels great to sit in it.
You can see the steering ready to be hooked up...
Hopefully driveable to the Severed in the Southwest show on Dec 5th!

Not with ST, Lowboy will have a booth and it will be there.
I wouldnt want a doored truck, I have heard there are too many problems with them.
Also they dont always look good at ride height, so I am good with the 1/4

Oh man, looks like you are doing work. The updated front clip turned out good. Very nice full size that lays extremely flat.

Bigg Brown was at the Severed Show, I love Socalcustoms.com.
Hope to have it back to its winning ways by the Art of Noize show...
