    Sorry Dan!!!

    Been too busy to deal with anything lately... Haven't even checked in on the HAMB for what seems months. Busy crushing grapes right now but thankfully that's about done and I can get back to other shit like mess'n with the truck and getting the Dragster Finished. That's a major goal for this year and I need to get crack'n on it.

    More news soon,

    RM

    Well......OhhhhKaaay! lol.

    I know you're busy. I just like the hell outta your truck and could use some new inspiration. I guess I'm wondering why you don't use the truck as your daily driver, and since you're not (apparently) what ARE you driving daily? Hard to imagine its cooler than the truck would be.

    Hey Dan fancy seeing you here, I see Dubie dropped in as well, I've followed this thread since the start. This is by far one of the coolest traditionally built trucks I've seen so far, love it!!

    I realize that this thread has been quiet for a while except for a comment just recently, but as I stated before I would be back once I was working on my truck. Well I received it late this summer and it was a mess, so it wasnt on the road and of course with winter here, its been in the garage getting worked on hard.... That being said, the big thing that jumped out from this thread for me was the lowering as I am looking for idea using springs and dropped axle. I have ordered all the parts from Sid (3" drop) but still need to decide on the springs. I still want the reliability and usability for loads of the leaf springs I think, and will probably do the same as you up front. What I am wondering though is the rear... so do you only have 3" dropped posie leaf springs back there? Seems a bit lower than what I would expect..

    some insight on your rear (of the truck) would be appreciated.... did you ever get lowering shackles?

    Thanks.

    Bringing this thread back from the dead. Any awesome build thread should live on! I sat down and read the whole thing this weekend in anticipation of building my own truck. Did you use the CPP kit with 11" 2nd gen Camaro brakes? What master Cyl did you end up going with? I wasn't sure if you ended up with a 1st gen Camaro manual brake master cyl.
