Default Peabody's 37 GMC

This is a new build I'm doing for Peabody.
Tim had another person who became ill then decided not to go any further with it.
The frame was built by this person and they done a great job so I don't have to start from dirt to complete the build.
We're installing a 350 SBC with a 4 speed T10 tranny.
The rear end is a nine in Ford, already installed with a parallel for link and coil-overs.
After we get all the motor mounts, brake tabs, shock mounts and all the things welded to the frame, we will pull the cab and bed, bead blast the frame and paint it bullfrog green.

Here's Tim's little pickup
Needless to say, I'm very envious

Old Iron. .
I'm incredibly honored, that for you to say your envious.
After seeing your rides, and your incredible talent in person.
It's your truck.
Do as you wish..
I think it's a match made in heaven
I've been messing around with this truck for several years.
I know now.. it's in good hands.
That bullfrog green does stand out ,doesn't it ?
And to the readers of this thread, the story goes like this..
Tim : what do you think jim ?
Jim : that's exactly my next truck..
Tim: what your plans ?
Jim : i have several ideals. . But im not going to tell you.
Tim: your serious? Your not going to tell me ?
Jim : yep not gonna, I'll suprize you..
Soooo ? Dear readers, this thread. .I'll be following along, just like you.

And just for the record, I'm a long haul tanker yanker.
Not home too much.
Like I've said..
Finding this site...and Old Iron.
Match made in Heaven
I'm absolutely thrilled to finally get this project going.
And best part is . Jim don't live very far from me.
Jim did tell me.. everything he does wrong with my pickup.
He won't with his... hahaha!
But with old at the helm of this project,
I've no worries at all .
He's a good down to earth, honest man.

I want to add that we won't be chopping this ride.
I received the first part yesterday, the 30" tilt column.
