I have had this 88 since Dec and the end goal is to have a nice street car. The guy I bought her from let it sit for 8 year in the grass and looked like at one time in was sunk in the ground, mud all in the frame. I have put allot of effort to make her right the first time around. I have been putting allot of time doing all the needed things like suspension, brakes and rust repair. I made a post in the new member area but figured I would make a build thread. List of things I have done to date. I started with rebuilding the front suspension all new or rebuilt parts, installed blazer front brakes, cleaned and stripped the frame and under body of car( pressure washed numerous times to get all the mud out of frame), well the best I could with the body still on car, repaired the minor rust holes in the floor (isn’t small pin holes), bed lined the whole under body, installed rear blazer brakes I didn’t need to relocate rear shocks, moser 28 spline axles, 3.73 gears with 28 spline differential. I have hit a spot that it will take a bunch of cash to go forward, engine and paint so the progress will slow down a bit.
