Looks good! I picked one of these up a year ago but then I figured out I don't like the new body style a little after getting so in the box it sets. But you are doing a great job the grill inserts really look great.

I'm not a Chevy fan by a long shot, but you nailed that grill! Nice Job!

-You sure do make progress fast. I too save up misc. parts, never know when an idea will strike. I mean no dis-respect, but on the front susp., why have leaf springs and coil-overs? It may be better to 3/4-link the front-end, & just run the coil-overs. The rear could be done the same way. I'm pretty sure I've seen full-scalers done this way. I like those big ol' dualies too!!!
