Wow, quite the transformation. I have a fuel tank for you if you want it. Needs the inside cleaned out somehow and could use some clean up outside, but it holds gas now. Yours for the cost of shipping. It's just taking up space here now and I'd rather somebody use it. With your apparent skills, I would think you'd be able to use it.

How long has it taken you to get to this point?

Sometimes when using a mobile device it is often necessary to first re-orient the photos before uploading but not too big a deal if you didnít.

Anyway, looks like youíre doing a good job! Did you leave in the rear shock with the springs or did you use proper shocks? Just curious.

I think the spring shocks were installed because leaf springs are sagging but not sure. If I was in Kansas City I would have the spring company make me a set of leaf springs.
