New NJ guy

I've been aq lurker for a while. bought a 68 stepside a year ago. Thought i'd just turn a few wrenches and get it going.

Well......

Complete tear down, LS Swap, C-Notch, Full Ride-Tech with bags, Baer brakes and sheet metal and still going.

Lots of great info on this site. I'm learning a lot.

Re: New NJ guy

Thanks everyone. It'll be a nice build when done. I've been watching what everyone does and I'm heading the restomod route with mine. Should be fun!

I actually keep my garage in Absecon. I just have a small house with no garage in Brigantine. The garage is bigger than my house. Lol. Priorities.

Re: New NJ guy

Welcome!

Make sure to start a project thread and share your journey! I myself am doing a build and looking for a 6.0/6.2 to swap. I hope more people keep sharing the ls builds to help the others.

I'll get that going. once I get all my parts in and start reconstruction. All I have for now is a rolling chassis. waiting forever on some sheet metal.
