Damn, I can feel the disheartenment(if thatís even a word) in this picture.itís a bummer but at least you have options and can get it sorted.

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

ya having no luck selling this yet though. I don't have Facebook so I posted on Craigslist, 5 miles, and offer up...no luck yet. I'm getting the front frame painted now along with the crossmember but that will be done by the weekend.

Looking good. My project is kind of in the same place right now. It would be nice if they went back together as fast as they came apart

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

some of my pics don't want to upload....but anyways. got the crossmember sanded down and painted up and back on. 60 bucks in new grade 8 hardware

not sure which route I want to go down now, haven't had any bites on my donor truck so my motor issue is still at a stand still.
