    Start with a 6.25 in the front with a 8.50 in the rear and a some good bracing.

  2. Not sure what you mean, but it seems like you're off to a good start. It looks like you got the body over a pre-'93 S-10 frame with a 4.3.

    lots of good hard work - to me, with the backround, looks like roof is too long making rear side windows look too short maybe post another pic when you put more primer on it and different backround. certainly hope the 4.3 will be replaced. running full bagged S10 frame?

    Jalopy joker, the frame is still the original with the exception of the front frame clip.
    We will try to take some better shots with a different back ground.

    nice! i did 7 in the front and 9 in the rear on my shoebox. i'm glad you're getting positive feedback. i got some negative comments on my build thread, and some nasty pm's about how i shouldn't have chopped my car as much as i did. but anyway, your car is looking good! keep at it.
