Post up pictures when its done. When it warms up I'm going to hit up the pull-n-part to get some more lower control arms and stuff off vans. Who is doing your paint and body work?

Will do.

So you'll have the market on LCAs and springs. nice.

The students at C.E. McCormick Area Technology Center in Alexandria are doing the body work and the paint.

Saves me some money and I feel I'm helping them out too.
