bought and rebuilding. Alot of nickel and dime problems, alot of I dont like that, and alot of cwm8
but its getting better and I have been driving it daily for the past 2 weeks.
night I got it, junk battery, overheating, no rear sheetmetal inside causing headaches from loud exhaust and fumes coming in cwm3

exhaust fumes and little rocks hitting you in the head are neatcwm4

new tubs, and notch cover I bead rolled

new passenger fender, and aligned fenders so they dont rub when doors open

thats it for now, next is front wheel tubs, camaro front and rear seats (damn 22's) bodywork and paint very soon!

Those Oasis B1's are no joke. I've had 2's and 4's on my SS. Boy do I miss them :(
What are u thinking as far as color?

I have a cadillac maroon with ice blue pearl and cobalt blue flakes for it. Thinking it needs a two tone though, or some flames going from the hood, over the roof, trunk, and down the bumper. Hopefully painter will be ready for it in the next few weeks!

Why size tires are you running? I didn't body mine because I'm rubbed to the quarter window just I lay frame on a 255/35 22. Looks nice though, I've been hearing about this car lately, glad it popped up on here!

Front bags were done odd, but I wouldn't call it "sketchy". Original bodywork was not good. Streets don't know much.:D
Wasn't getting email notifications, will update what the car looks like now in a minute.
Yes it was for sale, but everyone who is into custom vehicles is on the broke side or offering up some terd hacked out ride for it. So I am keeping it and finishing it out 100%
