I wasn't going to do a build diary do to lack of self discipline but I thought I would share some photos from my facebook page. I also will have some ideas/questions I may want to bounce off you guys.

We will be ready even if I have to sleep here at the shop to get r done!  I'm figuring 60 days from today. That gives me a 5 day cushion.

As of this weekend we are done with 99% of the chassis fabrication. Next week we will tear down all the pre-assembly and begin the painting process.

Question to the masses, How far would you extend the exhaust off the rear? Flush with the rear body panel or 2-3" past?
