^ Did he actually put SS badges on it? I didn't see any.

And that's a very sad-looking LS4 in the donor car. Sad

No, thank God. I saw all the SS stuff and thought I saw badges too.

Looks like some nice upgrade action. Are you stripping that donor car for all it's worth?

Looks like the car did it's job though. As much as I can rag on W-bodies, I'm more than wiling to admit the platform is an absolute tank. I've seen some in the junkyard that have been absolutely thrashed on the front end, but the passenger compartment maintained it's integrity.

Never said you would. I was defendin' ya! Mr. Green

I also have to agree that your car is coming along very nicely! You've obviously put a LOT of work into it. I hope the car treats you as well as you are obviously treating it!

I like it! Why didn't you paint the dogbones and mounts as well? Also, what's up with your cluster?

62,000 miles and still going strong. But, that's just a matter of time. It will go eventually. They always do.

Eventually, I'll have the cash for the TEP upgrades, but just don't have it now.

I think I'd paint either the dog bones or the mounts, but not both. Don't want to add too much red to the engine compartment.
