    Well, I figured it's about time to start my build thread. I've been making some pretty good progress, and if I wait any longer, I'll probably forget a lot of stuff. I'll do my best to add hyper links from related posts so that everything ties together.

    The Member Truck Thread

    So my project is a '93 RCSB with a 5.7L 350. It's all stock with about 452,000 miles on the chassis. We replaced the engine with a factory crate motor at approximately 325,000 miles. Wish we would've rebuilt the OG motor, but oh well. It's been a great truck :waytogo: I'm planning on doing paint, suspension, and a few mods within the next 12 months, but it will probably take me waaaay longer. We all know how these builds go, right? Time and money...

    I replaced the front bumper because of a small fender bender with a Bimmer in 2017. Much to my surprise, the Bimmer didn't even look like it got hit.

    Me...not so much...

    I hit the junk yard, and sourced a nice core support from a '98 burb. Talk about a PIA to remove! Liquid wrench was my BEST friend that day :gr_grin:

    At first, I was just going to clean up the core support, and maybe prime or spray the areas that were rusted and exposed.

    But after going over it a few times with a wire brush, I said screw it. I called around, and found a guy that would sand blast and powder coat everything (e.g., core support, braces, bumper brackets, etc.) for like $100 bucks.

    Before...
