      Itís been a little while since last post, got tired of body work so I sent body off to get finished and painted. I got a little more done on chassis, ran some ac lines and all brake lines on the frame. Painted inside the body to make all one color before it went away. My emblems showed up for grille, tail panel and front fenders. I think the came out awesome thanks billet badges !! Also my rims got done and mounted some rubber. On the back I just put some used tires I had because as soon as I can drive this thing Iím pretty sure the tires will be melted off!! Thanks to Boze for the rims they look awesome!! 20x12 rears and 18x10 fronts. I rolled all cars out because I did a massive garage cleaning, way overdue.

      Whole body is out getting finish Iíve been polishing stainless trim, so much fun! Made my exhaust tips and polished. Started on my dash again, cut in ac vents out of 2019 blazer. Cut in new ac control head from Dakota Digital. Cut in hood release out of 2018 pickup.

      Did you machine your Rosie dash emblem or perhaps it's a Billet Badges custom made piece? How does the hardware attach it to the dash? Nice color and dash work.

      Thanks Tubed and csouth for compliments. The emblem was done oreana custom machine. They did an awesome job, took only 1 day and cost $80 shipped. I have to paint it then polish the top of the letters. The other badges (42-39-56 and cross flags) were done billet badges which turned out awesome also but they are completely finished.

      What an awesome build 634! You have done an amazing job with it and I personally love the attention to detail you give.

      I have a couple of questions:
      - When you did your firewall did you skin over the old or cut it all out and weld in new steel?
      - When working on your frame did you weld it to a frame table to keep it true? If not any tips? I will be mini tubbing my GS and adding support throughout like you did.

      BBskylark thanks for compliments. The firewall is just skinned with I want to say 16 gauge metal. When I did the frame I did not tie to table, I know that’s not the correct way but I didn’t have a table. When I welded I did short sections to not get to hot to keep warping to a minimum. I took measurements before and after to make sure everything was ok.

      Thanks 634, I was thinking along the same lines as you on that. Looking forward to seeing yours done!

      Little update, got the dash all done except for a couple dust nibs that need taken care of. I know I should have have done it first but I got a little excited to see all the together. I also moved the glove box latch release to underneath . I also had my cluster updated by switching the tach and speedo. I think the cluster looks much better like this. Thanks to Dakota Digital for helping me out. Iím mad at myself for not telling them to take mph out of speedo and having it say Rosie. I think that would have been a nice touch. I also have 3 sets of exhaust trim rings cut out, trying to decide which design to go with. I think for now Iím going to use the scalloped ones and when I get the middle ones completed I will see what I think. The top ones need polished and are probably my last choice for now.
