Packed my bags, tools and moved RBS (Ram-Bunk-Shush is her name) Build Thread down south here where it's warmer

The last few pics of RBS before being butchered up for an extreme makeover (on a budget) ...









One of the last rides of RBS...

Before any more stripping, next changing the rear suspension...



Out with the old...



The old coilover kit (from WCF Performance) changing to 400lb 7" springs from 300lb 8" springs.
Raised rear bump stop by inverting bump stop plate and painting all parts black with KYBees painted Koni red (well, this is on budget)



It was lucky for me to get the bump steer kit for half price from a not so lucky guy who totaled this ride before installing the kit



Finally the bump steer suspension is in, Fred (my brother-in-law at 84) helping me out installing (PAINTED KYB) Koni red struts



Dog in pic: I'm baby sitting Clarence (my daughter's dog) again

Thanks for asking, the overall look will be more Lambo-ish, 2" more chop from existing 2" choptop

Wow, I've always thought this was a cool car, I need to ask, With as much as your doing, wouldn't it have been easier to start fresh w/ another car rather than cutting this one up???
