Re: my caddy project With lowering plates. (furious GTi)

not bad not bad. I like the round headlights, don't see enough of those on caddys. IMO i'd scrap that exhaust, for a techntonics system, and get some snowflakes
, should be able to get em for cheap. haha, bumpers would be nice to...looks like its coming along though!

Sure hope youve got more than 2 bolts holding each stub axle on

Tell me there's more than those two small bolts holding it together. Consider that the same stresses exist that go through the 4 bolts that hold your wheels onto the truck. There's a reason that there are 4 big lug nuts.
Besides that it looks cool. What are your paint plans?
