Re: 1990 daily driver build

personal preference...in my case, i pulled the trans from under neath, and the motor lifts straight up...plenty of room either way.

Well a lot of people will tell you that you are creating more work for yourself. However it takes an hour to pull the core support off and for me it was a ton easier having it removed. Less chance of tearing up your hood or anything else.

Re: 1990 daily driver build

I got the new inner rocker support welded in and grinded down. I was fresh out of primer so I did some fitting on the rocker panel. I think I finally have it where I want it. I will pick up primer this week and post some more pics.

Re: 1990 daily driver build

Ok after lots of fitting and grinding I finally got the cab corner lined up the way I wanted. I got it all tacked up and will finish it out tomorrow.
