    What are you going to notch? they look like they have plenty of clearance and it sit low.

    Like this.... They hit the frame when laid out. Pretty low as of now but maybe if I notch I can get an extra 1/2 lower.... :D:D everything inch (or 1/2in) counts to me...

    Been ordering parts here lately little by little. I tore my block apart so I ordered Fel-pro complete gasket kit. I put the head gaskets on today but now I need to order new lifters cause I mixed up the order when I put them aside. [​IMG]

    Now that I'm putting it back together I'm going with a gloss black engine and satin black frame. Some of the components on the engine will be chrome and some silver on the suspension components. Here is what I did today.

    Thanks^ before I had my frame gloss black with pretty much all the removable components silver, then to top it off with a Chevy orange block. It looked good but I think it had too much going on.

    Do yourself a favor and loose that air cleaner, those ones are serious fire hazards.

    Thanks, I would like to run the fancy stuff like Accuair but I most likely will run manual valves. A fellow forum member on 67-72chevytruck sell them and they look trick bad thing is I think u have to run air line outside cab so when u dump it doesnt release air in cab. It's gonna be one of them deal on what I can afford once I get to that point. I dig your fleetside! I'm gonna try and build one of those next.

    Finally worked on frame today. Have been slacking here lately plus been slowly working on my dads impalas air ride. Also started working on frame this Saturday and mig welder ran out of gas. Finally got everything worked out though. I built my fuel cell mount also today. The second pic the fuel cell is just resting on the mount.

    I like that X member. Perfect clearance for drive shaft and exhaust.

    But the thing is his products are for 60-87 C10s and 55-59 Chevy/Gmc trucks. But you never know I know of a forum member on 67-72trucks that made his own frame rails and made the front Dropmember work on a 04 Ford Dually.
