pretty much i've been moving lately and i haven't had much time to work on the chassis.

i finished welding the front suspension, except for the steering rack, so i'll have to finish that later. the rest of the suspension will bolt up no problem.

Nice welding, BTW.
Thanks!
It's a 30-over 383, but I didn't build it myself so I don't know what the cam is.

So it sounds pretty wicked. Gotta find a muffler shop to weld up the whole exhaust (it's clamped right now) and drop in the cutouts so I can go to Infineon and drag her.
Woo! biggrin

i got the stock steering box in my monte. but I did just get a new hydraboost set up...that runs off of the power sterring pump...to power the brakes...so that should be interesting.

what happened to the motor in your truck??!!
