I actually had a nice Alpine setup, with 2 10" subs in the trunk, 6x9's in the rears. However I couldn't actually hear them over my engine :)

Yes there is, when you remove the shocks, and pulls the leafs your able to cut the fenders all the way to the frame to fir the ginormous tires that I have. I'll see if I can get some pictures from the front and where the leafs would be and the clearance that I have.

I would need a peice of the aluminum for a block, and I don't want to really cut a good dash bezel just to make a block. I've got some new pics of what's been done to the car and some new parts over the past couple weeks.

Pages 6-7-8 are all newer photo's, getting there slowly but surely. I know everyone doesn't care for the race seats much, but I like how the car is turning out, actually have one of the side pipes mounted and installed now, will finish the other this weekend, see if I can get a video with some sound as such. New torque converter was installed last weekend as well, got it from hughes performance, GM30-HDBB-BPO, Took some pics of the install, what a mess. The jack may give a good laugh to a few people, but it's a lot cheaper then buying a tranny jack for just the few times that I'll do it.

It isn't funny. I just spent three days changing the clutch in my buddy's truck with only a floor jack and a ratchet strap.(in a gravel driveway).  He has a '94 3/4 ton chevy with the NVG4500 tranny.  Talk about a pain.  Next time I will buy the tranny jack even if I only use it a few times.

The car is looking great!  Can you get some pics of how the side pipes hook up?  I'm looking into putting a set on my Mud truck.  Thanks for the great pics also.
