Thanks guys,i work so fast so i'm not allways rember to take pictures

When do you sleep ???
I work long days usualy 12 hour shifts seven days then seven days off ,sometimes 5 weeks 12 hour shifts ,i'm use to it but i have 5 and 8 year old sons so some times it's hard
My 2 sons are the same age now.
I been allways on the road,and that suits for me ,but it's hard for family
Girl frends usually tired aboat 2-3 years
I am 49 now. 50 later this year.
I will be a real old man when my boys turn 18.
Yes on the Road I know some.
Commute drove to Chicago area for years. 900-1000 miles per week.
But gone alot from home.
Only daily driver projects got done typical.
Boys getting older. Have to be around more.
Diesel Mechanic School Bus working out Ok.
the further the project is advanced the better the results look!
That wood floor looks better that i thought
You work Fast !
8-10 hour days and good shop ,over head grane helps that kind of jobs
Nice work. I like the inboard fuel tank and location. I never liked the side saddle tanks chevy's had for many years. Are you relocating the fuel door to the back also, or are you bringing the filler tube up thru the bed.
My bad... I just relooked at your latest pic and seen the filler tube coming up thru the bed.
I have one saddle tank and one back of the bed i get 180 litter fuel in tanks
Never run outta gas at the track on Saturday night, will ya?
I'w been playing with idea that i do extended cab for my truck
I have one rotten cab and found suburban doors
If i shorten the bed and suburban doors and weld back half of that rotten cab to my truck
So then i have extended cab with short back doors and short bed
What you gentlemens think,does it look right
take accurate measurement of the proposed components, then,
do an accurate too scale, photo shop version, to get a visual idea on how it may look,
well before you start physical work on the physical components,
prior proper planing goes a long way toward reducing problems
I have to see a sketch on paper.
Suburban was built on an extra wheelbase frame chassis.
Be easier to just buy a Clean Suburban.
Something like this
Looks good either way. But I have to ask, what do you need more of ...... interior space or bed space?
I guess it wouldn't make a difference either way if it's just about, can you do it for the fun !
