Looking great! Mine is a '70 also. What are you doing for the rear suspension?

Undecided on the rear suspension right now, gonna stick with leafs, but I'm either gonna go with an explorer rear axle but then I gotta order custom backspaced rear wheels, if I use a certain wheel then I gotta find a 65" wide axle, then ill re drill the right bolt pattern in it to fit my wheels, I think an older f150 axle is close to that that I need

Ain't that the truth! Drilling the mounting holes is fun though. You have the advantage of flipping the frame over which will make it easier.

Looks good so far. Boxing the frame is something I want to do to mine when I can get to it.
