    Well, my photobucket account is not there. I'll have to figure out something for getting pictures to you guys. I picked up the LS3, 4L70e, torque converter and all accompanied electronics to go with it from Jegs a couple weeks ago. I've been waiting a couple weeks on the GenRight fenders, they don't offer the fronts in aluminum anymore, they should be in tomorrow. The Atlas isn't suppose to ship until May 31st according to Advance Adapters. Hopefully I will get the radiator and transmission cooler ordered this week too. I haven't got to work on it for a couple weeks while I've been waiting on parts, plus the kids were on spring break so we took some fun time with them.

    Thank you sir. I haven't worked on it much lately. Mocked up a foam model for a fuel tank to make sure it'll fit. The tank will hold just over 29+/- gallons when completed. Going to do an FiTech in tank pump and Classuc instruments fuel sending unit. I'm wanting to find someone that's good at custom fiberglass work to extend my top about 9" or so, the Corbeau seats and sliding mounts went in nice with no issues but have no room to recline. Flaming river steering column was no problem either. I had to take 2" of height out of the grill in order for everything up front to work and clear the JKU frame, that was a lot of tedious, thin sheet metal mig welding. Lol, but it's together now. I also had to cut out the factory cross support in the front of the frame and fabricate a new one for the radiator to sit down into the frame where I wanted it to be. I'm sure there's much more that I just can't recall at the moment. Haha, getting old sucks!

    If "WE ARE" the result of our past paths,
    we need to pay attention to who "OUR PRESENT WALK" is with,
    to prepare us "FOR OUR FUTURE DESTINATION"
