What's going on?

How have you all been? Does anyone have any cool builds/conversions going on? I've got 3 or so conversions lined up currently but they aren't all Chevrolets. First I have a 1999 Dakota to put a 12 valve into this winter. I have a 69 D100 to put one in, and finally maybe my wife's 72 suburban. I need to find a shop to rent again. Oh, and get a time machine or stop watch.

Any of you get any covid breaks to where you had a lot of time to do any more builds??

I'm gathering parts to start my build.

1972 Suburban 4x4 frame
1992 Dodge W250 4x4 donor truck
5.9 Cummins with rotary valve
518 Automatic transmission & transfercase
Dana 60 front & Dana 70? rear with 3.54 gears
P-Pump off 1995 Cummins
47RH rebuilt transmission from 1994 Dodge 4x4
Block spacer for transmission
Rob Bonney Frame Boxing kit & Motor Mount kits

Still sourcing springs - probably Alcan springs but figuring out spring rates

etc etc

Not a conversion, but I picked up a 1988 V30 crew cab with a 6.2 that I'm trying to get running. I'm about to remove the IP for a rebuild.
