Project Ratstro

Postby nitropyro [OP] » February 8th 2008, 2:23am

Project Ratstro, all in all will be a full blown custom. will sit on 20's and 18's chip foose wheels on thin, wide bf goodrich g force rubber. A 402 bbc coupled to a 700r4 built to handle the power, into a ford 9in with 4.11's. axles tubes cut, to fit the new rubber with moser axles cut to length. stainless steel break company (ssbc) break cailpers up front and rear both disc's. air ride on all corners. shaved everything fuel door, locks, handles, license plate relocated to rear roll pan and body line gone. then a 95 front face lift switched to a safari billet grille. will be two toned with ford (c4) blue up top and ford (cx) gun metel grey on bottom, split at the body line under the windows. all suede and leather interior with caddy seats and custome dash that flows into a centerconsole that will go into the rear of the van for the passengers. with alpine type x speakers and subs at all corners with alpine flipout controlling it all. maybe a flip down screen or headrest monitors for passengers.
but enough yapping....
when i bought the van

Wow....I think the pictures are nice. And the start up was interesting. The only unusual part was the excellent rear shot at about the 1 minute mark ;)

BTW, love the colors.

Sweet! I'd love to see it in no matter what condition. Your skills surpass mine by a billion fold.

Does your dad do this kind of work for a living or how did you and him become so good?


I mean that paint job and everything is sooo good.

my dad is a gm master tech soon (in april) will be a world tech only 1200 and some odd gm techs are in this class. my dad loves to race he and i were talking he said he could never imagined putting this much time into a car. but my friend vance (he hasnt resigned up astromaxx from the old boards) has helped out alot he is a ford deisel tech, and i do paintless dent removal. we have done all the mechanical work and paint prep work only our second try at it. then urp8nt from the old boards is the one laying the color. and thats my team of master minds. we all do it for fun and knowing i will drop anything to help them.
