Hey guys and gals I figured I was into this deep enough to start a build up thread here is the down low.

Building this for my wife and I it is a 87 HB that we purchased for 500$

stock floor BD, Re bagged, Rebuilt all around check it out let me know what you think ..

When I got it a shoddy shop bagged it and never used real bag plates just had a bunch of gobbled stuff welded on it and not even close to layin out and all the body work was skreeewed..lol
