Maybe. After doing the rear, I'm leaning more to doing the front, also. Only bad thing is with S-10 stuff, you have to relocate the shocks, which really limits your turning radius. Unless I pony up for shockwaves, which are a bit too much for me right now.

I had to relocate the shocks on the 48 when I did the front on that too.

So I haven't posted much since Prime Steel, but its back on the hoist now. After building the new transmission mount, I found that I had crushed the dipstick tube on the firewall cover that I made last year. So I had to pull that off, which required, dropping the master cylinder, throttle cable, and pedal mount, replacing the tube and reassembling everything. But its done and better than it was. I also got the gas tank reinstalled, new fuel lines run. New battery box built and in place, new turn signal switch that I was having issues with at '50s last year, and lock-out wiring harness installed inside the transmission. Now I need to run new battery cables and reinstall the filler neck and I should be about ready to fire it up again. Then still have to modify the seats (which Lucky was kind enough to volunteer to do), run some kind of exhaust, run some rudimentary air management system to the front and drop some carpet in before the wedding. Not looking impossible...
