Yep, SWEET "A". A little uncomfortable with the rake, but a very sweet van none the less.

That's really awesome, gives inspiration to us beginners..

How does the rake change the handling? I wanted to do that too, but was a little worried about how it would handle. affraid

FYI - According to Taz, panic stop w/ drums = pump the brakes

What sort of shape were they in when you acquired them? Was it a long restoration, or search for a nice starting truck?

Thanks Jim

the pickup was "done" when i baught it as far as the body goes. been upgradeing everything else sinse i baught her back in '96 the van was a 200$ shed in southern arizona. rust free but dents everywhere, not huge dents but a lot of parking lot dings. i baught it from the original owner. it took a few years to do ,dont quite have the perfect facility to work on things in the winter, so i only worked on her in the spring,summer. some day the 30x60 garage will be built- even then it wont be big enough!
