78SWB:
Here is a pic of when I went down to KC, MO and picked up my 1978 Chevrolet SWB K10.



Here are some pics of the ol' pos when I got it home.







Then I found some factory rally wheels, painted them, and put the 32" BFG ATs on them.





Took some crap out and got a new steering wheel!!!

78SWB:
As you could see in the other pics, the body mount bushings were shot. So I replaced them with some Poly bushings.
