I got Dale Gerry to build a frame for me. I wanted a low static ride height on 22's
with big power. Dale built me a mostly complete frame that I modified here and there. 9 inch with 4 bar. C6 spindles 1 1/4" front sway bar, 1 1/8" rear

Other than the frame work that Dale did for me I have done everything else. Finished the metalwork in the spring of last year.

Nice to have the frame rolling with LT4 8 speed auto. Went with 15" Wilwood brakes up front and 14" out back.

Covid was a good excuse to stay home last summer and do body and paint.
