Saturday Pics

Here is what we got done on Saturday. It has a ThrottleDown Kustoms frame rails as the base. Most of the chassis is made of 2". Since we will probably put it on it's lid.

Not with that body flapping in the wind too much drag
I'll see if I can get some pics of mine posed up soon. Don and I started on it thursday afternoon. Kinda going the opposite direction- small and light, with no body- hopefully my BLOWN buick v-6 and 16" fox's will be enough for 2500 lbs!

Looking good so far. Can't wait to go play in the rocks.

Peter
