I slapped on some skinny white walls on front slots..
Now to jack it up..But not probably what your thinking..
Letting the air out rear rear shocks..and here comes some Knuckle busters to get the snoot up ...

Poor man has poor ways.. I cant afford a straight axle and stuff for the true gasser look.

Good Knuckle busters..
For those of you not familiar with the term..
They spread the coils open.
As they rotate they kinda snap into the next level.
If you don't have them seated correctly they slip out..causing busted knuckles on pavement or inner fender stuff ahahahaha.

Here is about 3 inches of lift..
And how they work..

I like that black satin look! If it were mine, I'd black out all the bright work and put some dark window tint on it and lower it a tad below stock ...lol...but that's just me....

Hi Ya Willez..
Thanks my friend.

After a long day of wet sanding.."I even recruited the wife"
I ran to town and bought some Flat Black primer and squirted another layer of paint on last night.
My buddy wasn't home , so i couldn't pick up the snorkel hood scoop..ugh

After pulling paper back off..and admiring my work
Not sure I'm digging on the Snoot up looks...ahahahahaha
Probably pull Coil spreaders back out and Jack the rear back up.
Still a clean fresh slate to work with..
I am going with a Rat Look and feel..But need to Google for some more Ideas

See what comes about this morning doing some research.
Stickers and HEI distributor should be landing today.

I'm also kinda still leaning on the GT-37 stripe too...
Oh the dilemmas
