My 2003 Project so far

Postby LowKey [OP] » September 14th 2014, 6:33pm

Hello group. This is my 2003 GMC Safari AWD project that I am working on. It is still "under construction" and I am hoping to get it to show quality by next summer. I am showing pictures when I first purchased it in June of 2014 to now (Sept 2014). I am planning to paint it black with metal flake and I want to put an airbag suspension on it. Currently I lowered the front by removing the torsion bar screws and it sits nicely, so I now need to lower the rear. I have removed the rear bench and I will post pictures of the interior as I progress on it. I added halo headlights and black LED tail lights. All comments and suggestions are welcomed (especially on suspension help). Thank you!

Welcome Lk, glad to have you here.
I'm not a big fan of the big wheel look but wtf do I know? :shrug:
I appreciate custom work and look forward to watching your build. Lots of pics I hope, a body can't copy someone else's work unless we have pics. I'm always looking for ideas.
Looks like you have a good start and a plan for your van.
Sorry your so far away, I might have jumped on those seats you have.
Keep us posted!

Thank you WB, I appreciate the welcome. I also appreciate that you enjoy watching someone else's build just as I do and get ideas from them. I will post pics as I go along.
