NICE! Love the pics, thanks for sharing!
Progress! Keep at it!
Congrats on the house! The van is really coming along too!
If I hadn't just done an engine swap, I'd be out looking for an AWD hightop to follow in your footsteps.

Keep at it, I really like where this build is going!
:rolling: :rolling:
^^ What he said. "Just moved the subframe" indeed.

Looks awesome! Who says there's no love for the 95 Astrofaris out there!
Cool! Keep at it!

In case anyone is curious, the dash width is the same between the envoy and astro: 59"
I think I like what I think we're thinking.
WOW! I know I'd missed a post or two, but... Man you've been busy!

Congrats on starting the new business, I hope it works out for you and your clients.

You will be amazed at how much you will have learned by the time you're up and running. Notice I didn't say finished, there's no such thing. I'll follow your build more closely now that I see you're in the throes of it. It'll get crazy, it'll get expensive, but it'll get done. You seem to have a good understanding of the process and a willingness to go where the project leads rather than being hell bent on a preconceived notion of how you wanted it to go. That's a good thing.

This got me to wondering... are there more posters here with V8 95's than V6 these days?

Looking forward to more pics and progress!
Amazing... and here I thought I did a lot to save MY '95.

Its one disadvantage: you cant form it into things that kill millions of people.
Oddly enough, I don't see that as a disadvantage.
Those who made that decision did.

Front diff replaced with an electric motor... I like how you think! During combustion engine use it could charge the battery bank. I wonder if that idea's been copyrighted yet?
VERY nice!
😮 I've never seen this done before- looks good so far. Talk about raising the roof!
