Default Hello everyone

Iíve been lurking and reading for a while. Iím rebuilding a 1985 K5 with a 305.
This is what I started with. It was close to junkyard bound but it didnít have any cancer rust. The streering gear box was leaking, the front axle was loose and I could only get 45 mph out of her.

Yeah that and about $12k in new parts (so far) does wonders.

I’m building it for the wife to take hiking in the NC mountains that require a 4x4 to gain access. I’ve payed to have new duels and to get the carb adjusted. The rest is all me and my son slave labor. Now my daughter wants me to build her a 80’s Camero for her big 16.
