Rockwell Build Thread

Nope, this isn't the rockwell build ya'll are asking for but simply a request by me to keep the BS out of my thread. I'm pretty good at documenting my work and I'm willing to take the time to make a build thread but only if it can stay tech related. So lemme know what you think..

ps.. I did make progress on it today. Here's a glimse of the front after being debraked, stripped of excess weight and 53's mounted on it.

Haha, that settles it then, I won't waste my time with a build thread. I debraked the front and took off the boot shields.

The deal I worked out with the guy I got the front from had 2 rears advertised with it. I got a front, 2 rears and 10 wheels/tires for $1,000. I had already bought 1 rear so now I have 3. I'm going to sell the two I don't need and regain the gas money I spent picking up the set plus some.

I've been debating just keeping one for spare parts for when I finally make enough power to break one.
