    Default project identity crisis

    This is my current project, its what atarted as a 77 GMC crew cab with rust. I did a 1/2 ton conversion and slammed it, then did a satin black/orange scallop paint sceme but at 8mpg and rusty underside it was time for a change. I bought a driving 2000 silverado in oct 08 from insurance aution and cut it up. I have transplanted the firewall and front floor section from the silverado into my crewcab as well as the seats, dash, carpet, console, floor and overhead consoles, wiring harness and motor/trans combo. Its still a work in progress( sat doormant drom nov 2009 to nov 2010, but im on a roll now. Its coming together quickly and i hope to have it driving within a couple months. Finished itll have a 5.3L, 4L60E, ac, heat, ps, 4wheel disc, and all the creature comforts of a 2000. Not to mention a 3:73 12bolt, headers, drop spindles, rear load bags( it will pull a trailer afterall), and a nice soundsystem. It should make those hauls to the sand dunes to ride the toys much more enjoyable not to mention easier on the wallet. here is my link to a photo album with more pics thanks for lookin.

    I agree it has been some considerable work but nothing really that wasnt rusted to death except my old firewall was good haha. I actually removed the 77 seatbelts by the door by pulling on them and out they came bolt floor and all. It probabally hasnt been this solid since 77.
