lots of work
Don't let this old beater fool you. This is a daily driven Buick powered rat rod that I use for commuting, working, and towing.
Been a while sinc my last post. I now have the lift installed and the GS scattered. Went with a Danmar ACX10. It's great. Fabbed a rotisserie for $250 using mostly pack rat material. It works great too. Will be taking the frame for rust dipping and will have the body media blasted. I will complete the chassis before touching the body. If I do this right I will also post photos. Long road ahead.

Customer wanted me to tow to the crusher. I gave him scrap weight price and decided to restore. Only had 30k miles. Hadn't ran on 8 years. I found the rotor button out 180 degrees. Turn button and started right up.
Hey guys, I decided to make some modification to my instrument cluster. I wasn't a big fan of the 3 big gauges in the square boxes since i got the car, so I decided to make it a cleaner, tougher look, delete the lighter and add gauges. It was a lot of work but I'm pretty happy how it came out with the tools i had available to me.
