Have you looked outside at the line of Avalanches at your garage door?


Nice! Waiting for the finish.

Yea me too... And mine wouldn't take nearly as much work...

I will likely have mine done when I retire. At the moment it is just rusted in front of the back wheels, by the gas cap, 1 rear panel is starting to bubble around the wheel well and the hood is starting to go.

But no point in doing anything to it now when I plan to go crazy on it in like 5 years...

You may want to least hit it with a dust converter to get you through five years.  Once it starts, you may find body pieces start falling off.  That's what happened with my S10 Blazer.  Still kicking myself in the rear for letting the body rot get best of it.

That's a great set of pictures. You did a fantastic job. I hope to do the same with my '02, amazing how they seem great then BAM rust pops out all over. :( :'(
